RESPECT IN SPORT PROGRAM
**NEW FOR ALL MINOR ATHLETES AND PARENTS**
Starting in the 2020 season and beyond, before registering your child, parents/guardians must complete the Respect in Sport Program mandated by Rugby Alberta & Rugby Canada. One parent/guardian must complete this program BEFORE registering any player under the age of 18 and the certificate number must be entered into SportLoMo when registering. Without the certificate number, a player cannot be registered.
The Respect in Sport Parent Program takes approximately one hour to complete and does not have to be completed in one sitting. The Program costs $12 plus applicable taxes and is valid for four years. You can use an existing respect in sport certification number you have received through another sport, provided that it is still valid. We encourage our members to become early adopters and begin sharing this information within their communities.
