The Respect in Sport (RIS) is a mandatory program under the playing rules and regulations of Hockey Alberta and Hockey Calgary. 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.
*** Your completed course certification automatically uploads to your child's profile as soon as you are done ***
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.
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 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.
Do NOT choose any version of "Calgary" under the Association list.
