Respect In Sport For Activity Leaders
Sport Manitoba believes in being proactive in ensuring sport in our province is safe and welcoming for all participants. Respect in Sport helps to promote those values through a simple and convenient free on-line training course for coaches and sport leaders. It is designed as a tool to assist coaches in identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying in sport.
Respect in Sport enables coaches to deal with legal and moral responsibilities, making them less vulnerable and more confident in dealing with sensitive issues. A risk management tool, Respect in Sport will help sport organizations reduce liability.
As a mandatory requirement, all coaches identified with a Provincial Sport Organization are required to take the course. Without this Certification a coach and/or sport leaders will not be allowed to participate in any Volleyball Manitoba Sanctioned Event.
Take the Respect in Sport For Activity Leaders course (approx. 2.5 hours).
In the spring of 2016, Sport Manitoba proudly announced a mandatory Respect in Sport recertification (every five years) for coaches in Manitoba. Therefore, all coaches and sport leaders who have completed the online course prior to 2013, will be required to complete it again to remain compliant with this requirement.
