The Respect in Sport program for Coaches, Parents and Activity Leaders provides in-depth information on the subjects of bullying, abuse, harassment and neglect in a convenient, safe and easy to comprehend manner. This multi-media program utilizes audio with synchronized visuals, animations that demonstrate negative behaviors and provide ideas of how a situation may be better handled, includes valuable information from subject matter experts delivered in a clear and concise fashion, and asks questions of the leaders based on the animated scenarios displayed.
Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador is the governing body of hockey within the province to foster and encourage the sport. They have sanctioned the Respect in Sport program for all their coaches and parents and are fully supportive of this type of awareness.
