Sport Manitoba believes in being proactive in ensuring sport in our province is safe and welcoming for all participants. Respect in Sport (RiS) helps us promote those values through a simple and convenient online training course for coaches and sport leaders.
Certain examples include Coaches, Trainers, Officials, Camp Counselors, Scout/Girl Guide Leaders, Referees, Leaders of extra-curricular and recreational activities. If you lead youth of any age and in any activity, you are an Activity Leader.
The course is designed as a tool to assist coaches in identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying in sport.
RiS is a required online training program for all coaches registered with a Provincial Sport Organization in Manitoba…learn more about RiS. Sport Manitoba recently launched mandatory re certification for coaches every five years…learn more about re-certification.
