Respect In Sport uses PayPal for credit card payments. You can also set up a PayPal account and pay directly from your bank account or purchase with cash a pre-paid credit card to use with PayPal.
Does KMHA reimburse the $12?
No. If we were to reimburse parents for the fee we would have to increase registration fees accordingly.

No. Ideally we would like both parents to take the course but do not expect families to pay twice. At least 1 parent must take the course.
Do I have to do it all at once?
No. You can do it at your leisure, come and go as required. The program remembers where you left off and brings you back to that point when you next sign-in. You can even do it from different computers.
What if I have already taken the Respect in Sport course to be a team official?
You are still required to take the Parent version of the course because it has different content that is specific to parents.
What if I have taken the Respect in Sport Parent program for another organization?
You would need to contact the Respect in Sport help desk to have your certification number entered into the Hockey Canada registry for your children.
If you require additional technical assistance with program operation or computer glitches please call the 24/7 Help Desk. The service is in both English and French.
