2021-2022 SEASON

The Respect in Sport (RIS) is a mandatory program under the playing rules and regulations of Hockey Alberta and Hockey Calgary. As of the 2018-2019 season Hockey Alberta instituted re-certification of the RIS Parent program every 4 seasons with the goal of continuing to educate members. One parent or guardian must complete this 1 hour online program BEFORE registering.

There is a nominal cost to the program and no pre-registration code is provided.


*** If you completed the course correctly, the certification automatically uploads to your child's profile as soon as you are done ***


Your registration will be considered “INCOMPLETE” if you do not have a valid expiry date on your

Respect in Sport certificate when your registration is received.

How To's

Do NOT choose any version of "Calgary" under the Association list.

The list is alphabetical, scroll down and choose "SOUTHWEST HOCKEY ASSOCIATION"

Choosing anything other than SOUTHWEST HOCKEY ASSOCIATION ----> WILL result in delays in the registration process!!

How to find your RIS Expiry Date:

Effective the 2021-2022 season, Hockey Alberta extended all valid RESPECT IN SPORT - PARENT (and Activity Leaders) CERTIFICATIONS by one year due to COVID19. This change is reflected in the Hockey Canada Registry 3.0 only and not in the individual's Respect in Sport account as it is specific to Hockey Alberta only.  Therefore, if Respect in Sport was taken in 2017, the expiry date is now May 1, 2022 and re-certification for the 2021-2022 season will no longer be required.

Once your HCR3.0 Spordle account has been set up and you have linked your children you will be able to locate your RIS Certificate number in each members profile.  Click on the player's profile and you will find each participants certificate number and the expiry date in the "QUALIFICATIONS" tab.

If you still need to set up your HCR3.0 Spordle account review the supporting documents on the registration page or CLICK HERE


How to add a child to your existing RIS Certificate:

If RIS Parent is current and you have older children playing with the Southwest, you are not required to complete the RIS again. You will need to go into the "child management" area of the RIS site and add the newest child to your account. Be sure to use your child's legal first and last name so the match can be found in the system.

How to transfer a certificate:

RIS Parent is transferable from some other sports, ie. Ringette, Lacrosse, Baseball.

Calgary Minor Soccer Association RIS applies to Coach RIS only as parents are not required to certify.

To transfer a certificate from another organization to Hockey Alberta's parent program go to https://hockeyalbertaparent.respectgroupinc.com and choose to register a new user. In the first field at the top of the registration page enter the existing certificate number and click check. It will then be validated and you can register the player with the association.
