Respect in Sports (Wainfleet Minor Hockey)

PrintRespect in Sports

Wainfleet Minor Hockey Association and the Ontario Minor Hockey Association are committed to the prevention of abuse, bullying and harassment, and the education of our membership.

At the 2013 Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s Annual General Meeting, the OMHA Board of Directors announced the OMHA will move to become a complete ‘Respect’ integrated association effective the 2014-2015 season.

Effective August 31, 2014, the ‘Respect in Hockey’ initiative will require all Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education.

At least one parent or guardian of each player registered in minor hockey in the OMHA will be required to complete the Respect in Sport - Parent Program as a condition of participation.

The one-hour online course is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children and all other stakeholders in the game.

Wainfleet Minor Hockey is asking our parents to take the course now, to avoid the rush at the last minute. Your son or daughter will NOT be able to register unless one parent has taken the course.

If you have any questions or need help, please feel free to contact any of the board members. We would be happy to help.
