Respect in Sport - Parent Course
Respect in Sport - Parent is mandatory for all players. In order to register your child for hockey, you must complete the Respect in Sport - Parent online course.
Important things to know:
- You must recertify every four (4) years (parents, coaches, bench staff, everyone)
- If you formerly completed the course and will be registering a child for hockey that has never participated in hockey before, you will be required to sign-in to the Respect in Sport website and add your child. This cannot be done by the EGHA and is the only way your child's Hockey Canada profile will be updated with the Respect in Sport - Parent qualification.
- If you completed this program in the past for another sport, you need to contact the Respect in Sport representatives to have the qualification transferred to Hockey Canada.
- Respect in Sport - Parent and Respect in Sport - Activity Leader are not interchangeable.
- The Parent course attaches to the player's Hockey Canada profile and is required for player registration.
- The Activity Leader course is required for all bench staff and cannot be used for a player's registration.
Between February 21 and April 30, Canadians can access the Respect Group programs at no cost. Visit Access Respect Group programs at no cost for more information.

EGHA does consider play with a friend requests. To request to play with a friend, please note which player you would like to play with at the time of registration. If you need to request to play with a friend after your registration has been completed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note the following criteria for play with a friend requests:
- ONE friendship request is allowed per player.
- Play with a friend requests must be reciprocal, meaning that in order for EGHA to consider the request, both friends need to submit a play with a friend request naming the other friend.

- Requests received after the final evaluation skate will not be considered.
