Respect in Sport Program


The Respect in Sport program for Coaches and Activity Leaders provides in-depth information on the subjects of bullying, abuse, harassment and neglect in a convenient, on-line, and easy to comprehend manner. The Competitive Development Committee and the RGA Board of Directors have passed a motion that addresses the need to protect everyone from these issues through improved education. All coaches must complete the on-line Respect in Sport modules and submit their certification number to their club (employer) and to RGA at rga@rgalberta.com. As of October 15th, 2011 ALL coaches must complete Respect in Sport training in order to be registered with RGA and be properly insured.
