Effective for the 2014-2015 Season, Hockey Winnipeg will be implementing the mandatory online Respect in Sport “Parent Program”. In order for a child to be eligible to play on a sanctioned Hockey Winnipeg team, this online course must be completed by at least one parent or legal guardian of any minor hockey player before the child can be registered. The RIS Parent Program is separate from the RIS Coach/Manager certification and therefore must be completed regardless of whether you have taken the RIS Coach certification in the past. This online program only takes about 1 hour to complete and the cost is $12 plus GST. Please make sure to add all of your children (who will be registering for hockey) to your RIS Parent Program profile.
Information regarding the parent program, including the link to register can either be found on your Area Association’s website or through here. The direct link to take the online Parent program course can be found here.
Included below are 4 questions you may have as parents try to register for the course:
1. Q: How will the family accounts of the Respect In Sport Parent Program link to the HCR?
A: At registration, the parent must associate a child or children to her/his profile (Child Management) where an association must be selected. After a parent is certified, and assuming he/she has associated a child to his profile, the HCR record of the child is updated under Clinics and Qualifications, including the Respect in Sport certificate number.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT THE PERSON REGISTERING FOR THE COURSE COMPLETES THE FOLLOWING SECTION: Enter the proper child information in the Child Management Page, then click on No Further Children to Add when done.
2. Q: What are the payment options for the RIS for Parents online course?
A: The payment is done through PayPal, by credit card or debit card.
3. Q: What if my association does not have online registration, as I understand I need my RIS number to register my child to play hockey?
A: The parent or parents can still take and pay for the course online through https://hmbparent.respectgroupinc.com . Once the parent has completed the course, they should print out the Respect in Sport certificate number and bring that printout to the “walk-in registration” day(s).
4. Q: How will the area associations know who has completed the course?
A: The Project Manager of the Respect Group will run reports to ensure you have all the information needed at the association level. The Project Manager has access to tools for exceptions, mainly when a parent is certified and has forgotten to associate a child to his profile (one of the most common registration errors) so he can verify if a parent has actually taken the course, but is not aligned to their child’s profile.
