As of the August 31 2014 it is a mandate of the OMHA that minor hockey member associations comply with the Respect in Sport Parent Program.
This means that at least one parent of each registered player, under 18 years of age, must take a hour long online course available on the OMHA and OWHA websites. This course is only available online. A number will be issued at the completion of this course. That number MUST be on the players registration form (or added before August 31 ,2014) or the player will not be allowed to be registered for the season with the OMHA/OWHA until the course has been completed.
This program is different than the one taken by on ice officials (coaches, trainer, managers). This parent course still has to be taken. The cost is $12 and is paid online.
I am sure there will be many questions and I encourage everyone to take a look at the websites first before calling and asking any for assistance.
