Parent Respect in Sport

Q. Who is the RIS Parent Program for?

Respect in Sport for Parents equips parents with the tools they need to support their children and maintain a safe, healthy environment in which to play hockey. RIS for Parents is designed for parents of minor hockey players.

Completing RIS is a condition of participation in most local hockey associations. At least one parent or caregiver in your household must maintain active RIS certification for your child to be eligible to play hockey. Completing RIS is also a great way to model respect for your child.

Q: I already took RIS with another sport and/or for another child. Do I have to take it again?

Not if your RIS certification is still valid. You will, however, have to register your certificate number with Hockey Canada.

Q: I already took RIS for Coaches (Activity Leader Program). Does this satisfy the RIS for Parents requirement as well?

No. The RIS for Activity Leaders and RIS for Parents programs are two very different programs. If you are both a parent and a coach, you will need to take both programs.
