Hockey Calgary will be the first amateur sports association in Canada to adopt the Respect in Sport Parent Education Program. The one-hour online course focuses on a variety of topics including player development, and interaction with the children, coaches and other parents. It will give parents a tool to evaluate their own behaviour and recognize their natural influence. “It sets a standard of appropriate rules for everyone. And, it empowers good parents to be better,” said Wayne McNeil, cofounder of Respect in Sport.
“Hockey Calgary’s number one priority is providing a safe and fun environment for our players,” said Perry Cavanagh, president of Hockey Calgary. “The partnership with Respect in Sport will help us promote our values by educating and supporting all levels of involvement, parents included.”
