Respect in Sport
Submitted By EGMHA Webmaster (JM) on Thursday, September 3, 2015
One of the most common reasons coaches, managers, and officials, of all ages, cite for leaving sport is unacceptable parent behaviour.

The Respect in Sport Parent and Activity Leader programs have developed a model of behaviour for all parents/volunteers to create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved. All parents with returning players and all EGMHA team staff were required to complete the Parent or Activity Leader portion of the Respect Program last season. This was mandated by the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA), which is dedicated to educating all members on the prevention of abuse, bullying and harassment in our sport. 

Part of this initiative is the launch of a new awareness campaign, where each OMHA member has received a Respect sign to hang in their arena.  It’s a great reminder for players, parents and team staff that respect is an integral part of hockey.  

As we start this new season, look for the new Respect sign at the East Gwillimbury Sports Complex.  

If you have a player starting hockey for the first time, and you have not yet completed the Respect program, you need to do so before their first ice time.  You can access more information on how to access and complete the course on our Respect In Sport page

As the game of hockey continues to evolve it is the responsibility of us all to change with it – but more importantly, to be the agents for positive change. Ultimately, we seek to provide the very best programming, as well as a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone in which to enjoy all the positive opportunities our great game has to offer. (Retrieved from http://www.omha.net/respectinhockey)
