Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program

The OMHA has partnered with Respect Group Inc. to provide the Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Program, the online equivalent to Speak Out! Certification, as an online e-learning course to our Members. 

Respect Group has created critical abuse prevention education with the Respect in Sport- Activity Leader Program. This easy to use online training enables sport and community organizations to create a safer, more ethical environment by providing essential information to each organization’s critical stakeholders.

Respect in Sport’s 2.5 hour highly engaging online training is for Activity Leaders of all levels: recreational, competitive, and elite, with the intention of:

  • Empowering and educating youth leaders and coaches on the prevention of abuse, bullying and harassment
  • Building a holistic culture of respect within the sport community
  • Providing fundamental training tools which enable all coaches and youth leaders to become better role models for the young athletes in their care

Respect in Sport online e-learning will also be linked to the Hockey Canada Registry [HCR], ensuring successful OMHA participant certification will be uploaded to the HCR upon completion
