Haldimand Girls Hockey Association Introduces the Respect in Sport – Parent Program
 
Haldimand Girls Hockey Association is pleased to announce that we will be introducing the Respect in Sport Parent Program to our Association beginning in our 2017/2018 season.
 
Over the last few years, this program has become a requirement in Ontario for Boys hockey, as it is in most of Canada. Over 350,000 parents have completed this program in hockey and other sports. We will be joining several other girl’s hockey associations which fall under the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association in taking a leadership role to make this program a requirement for our association as well.
 
For the 2017/2018 season, it is suggested that one parent/guardian per athlete completes the program, prior to the start of the season (September 1, 2017). It will be arequirement that one parent/guardian per athlete completes the program by September 1, 2018.
Many of you will have already taken the program if you have boys playing hockey or girls coming over from minor hockey. (please see section 
re: Importing your Certificate)
 
This program is aimed at helping good parents become better sport parents, by providing valuable information and tools to help us better support our kids in hockey. It is a fact that 70 percent of adolescents, leave youth sport and for every adolescent boy that leaves minor sports, 6 adolescent girls will leave.  This program helps to keep youth sport fun and safe for all, so kids will hopefully continue on in sports, well into adulthood.
 
The Respect in Sport Parent Program is a one hour on-line program. It is internet based, so it can be done anywhere, anytime. There is an APP available, so it can be downloaded to your mobile device.  You do not have to complete the program in one sitting, you can come and go from the program and it remembers where you left off.
 
While the requirement will be for one parent or guardian per athlete to complete the program, we strongly urge you to sit down as a family around the computer, including your kids and complete the program together.  If that is not possible, then we encourage whoever registers for the program, to share their username and password with their spouse/partner, or whoever else in the family regularly attends games, so as many members of your family as possible have the benefit of the information this program provides.
 
The cost of the program is $12 plus HST and is paid during the on-line registration process.  As previously mentioned, if you have already taken the program, you do not have to repeat it, however we will be asking you to “Import” your Respect in Sport – Parent Program certification, into our data-base, so we may track which parents have completed the program.
