As you may already be aware, Sport Manitoba has updated and enhanced Respect in Sport with a new platform. The new platform is Respect in Sport – Activity Leader. The program has been redesigned to address a broader audience of leaders who work in any capacity with youth. It covers the full spectrum of participants of all ages with extended and updated content.
Recertification was always a requirement of the program but has not been available until now. Ringette bench staff who completed the program five or more years ago will be required re-certify by January 15th, 2018 to remain as an active member of the team staff. Once you have completed the Respect In Sport-Activity Leader course, you will have five years until you are required to recertify. At that time, you will receive an automated email from the Respect Group letting you know it is time to recertify to stay active.
There is also a support line available to anyone who may be looking for some consultation regarding issues covered in the Respect in Sport-Activity Leader program. The number is 1-877-737-9875.
