OMHA emphasis on "Respect in Hockey"
Submitted By Jane Ann McLean on Thursday, February 6, 2014
The OMHA identified a recurring theme which has been communicated at virtually every Committee meeting during the season has been the message of 'Respect in Hockey' and opportunities to enhance  education and awareness of the message with all stakeholders, to improve the Minor Hockey  experience.  Therefore at the OMHA AGM it was passed to fully integrate all available 'Respect' education to all OMHA stakeholders, including Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents, effective August 31,  2014

Meaning - a condition of eligibility for all participants in OMHA, (therefore TMHI) of every registered player (under the age of 18) at least one parent/guardian must complete the Respect in Sport "Parent Program" for the 2014 - 2015 season. The program can be completed on line and involves a fee of $12. More details can be found on the OMHA website, at

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - PARENT PROGRAM 

I have completed the Respect in Sport Activity Leader Program, is this sufficient for 

satisfying the parent program as well? 

This program is tailored to the Role of the parent, providing information specific to the parental 

involvement, while the Activity Leader program has a different focus. During the introduction of 

the module, the differences are outlined. While there are some commonalities in messaging, 

the message is positive, and is only reinforced through repetition. 

 

Why am I required to complete the Program? 

In addition to being an OMHA condition of participation, it provides tools to deal with various 

situations that could arise in the course of your child's participation in hockey, both as a parent, 

and in any leadership role you may have. This is a positive program to make good parents 

better, and will empower all of the good parents in the organization. Beyond hockey, this will 

contribute to the greater good of all parents in the wider community. This is also a significant 

step toward the long-term goal of social and culture change. 

 

What will happen if I do not complete it by the specified compliance deadline? 

 After the deadline for compliance, participation may be denied until such time as the program 

has been completed. 

 

How do I complete the Parent Program? 

The program can be accessed through the OMHA website (www.omha.net). It is a one hour 

online curriculum with both audio and visual features that allows flexibility and does not have to 

be completed in one session. 

 

Is this required every year? 

No, once you have completed it you are certified and there are currently no plans for 

requalification/recertification. 

 

My child is 18 and is a registered player, am I still required to complete the Program? 

Completion of the Parent Program is not required for parents of players aged 18 and above. 

 

What if I have dial-up internet connection? 

The program is designed to be accessible by either high speed or dial-up. 

 

What if I do not have strong computer literacy skills? 

Utmost attention to detail was taken to ensure the program was designed to make the program 

user friendly. If issues do arise there is online help available as well as a 24/7 1-800 support 

number.
