Respect in Sport is Mandatory for 2024

Jan. 15, 2024


Do to the concerning increase in abuse towards officials and players, from parents and coaches, the GELC along with the other local governing bodies across the province have made the decision to require parents and coaches to take part in the “Respect in Sport” program for the 2024 season and onward.  

One of the most common reasons coaches, managers, officials and athletes, of all ages, cite for leaving sport is unacceptable parent behavior.  The Respect in Sport Parent Program will help define a standard of behavior for all parents and create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved. Parents want to do a great job supporting their kids. Respect in Sport provides parents with the tools to create and maintain Safe Sport environments.

The Respect in Sport Activity Leader/Coach Program educates youth leaders, coaches, officials and participants (14-years and up) to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination (BAHD). Our Activity Leader and Parent Programs are the Safe Sport Canada solution!


Follow this link to the GELC site for directions on how to sign up for the parent program, or how to link your previous credentials if you have completed the program in the past.
