Respect In Sport Parent Program - New for 2017-2018

The Ontario Volleyball Association is proud to announce the Respect in Sport Parent Program will be used by all Club Member parents, effective for the 2017-2018 season.

This roll out is a testament to the dedication the OVA and its members have in making this amazing sport fun and enjoyable for all.

Respect in Sport is an accessible, online resource in the prevention of bullying, abuse, harassment, and discrimination (BAHD). The program’s mission is to empower participants to recognize signs of BAHD and eliminate it from the game, through a global culture of respect.

Respect Group was co-founded by former NHLer Sheldon Kennedy in 2004. It partnered with the Canadian Red Cross to create a best-in-class e-learning curriculum for mass consumption. Participants are certified through a 60-minute on-line program, they can do from anywhere with internet access. Cost is $12.00.

At least one parent or guardian of each player registered in OVA volleyball will need to complete the online RIS Parent Program as a condition of participation before the first team practice.  The program is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children, and all other stakeholders in the game.
