Respect In Sport and the Parent Program

opdl guelph4 2

The OSA has partnered with the Respect Group to provide online education for coaches, referees and parents to help create a safe, healthy, and positive environment for children and youth involved in soccer.

The Respect in Sport Program assists coaches, referees, trainers and managers with identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment and bullying in sport. All competitive (Rep) coaches must take the Respect in Sport Program, and it is highly suggested for recreational (House League) coaches. The online course costs $30 and the curriculum is divided into six, 30-minute modules that can be completed at the user's own pace. Once completed, certification is portable to other sports involved in Respect in Sport.
