From CBC online,
The Respect in Sport program is an internet-based training course offered free of charge to coaches in all sports. The three-hour-long program, which is done on coaches' own time, will help them identify and cope with issues like neglect, harassment, abuse and bullying. Hockey Manitoba, the organization that oversees amateur hockey in the province, has already made the program a requirement for its coaches this season.
