Respect in Sport (RIS) *New* Re-certification

Hockey Calgary has instituted re-certification of the Respect In Sport (“RIS”) Program. Re-certification will be required every 4 years beginning 2017-18 Season.  All Parents that completed the RIS course prior to January 1, 2014 will have their certification reset and will be required to re-certify prior to registration.  

Hockey Calgary has mandated that if re-certification is not obtained, your child will be removed from the evaluation lists and will not be permitted to evaluate until such time as a valid certification is achieved.

It’s for the kids – “Volunteer”!

Parents (members) you are the essential part of a “team” which is reflected on the overall experience of both the player and the parent. Your players depend on you to make a memorable year. You are the advocate for respect, sportsmanship, enjoyment, loyalty and teamwork by volunteering.

Every member is required to volunteer for various tasks.
