Sport Manitoba - Respect in Sport Program

Sport Manitoba and Baseball Manitoba believe in being proactive in ensuring sport in our province is safe and welcoming for all participants. Respect in Sport helps us promote those values through a simple and convenient on-line training course for coaches and sport leaders. It is designed as a tool to assist coaches in identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying in sport. Respect in Sport enables coaches to deal with legal and moral responsibilities, making them less vulnerable and more confident in dealing with sensitive issues. A risk management tool, Respect in Sport will help sport organizations reduce liability.

As a mandatory Sport Manitoba requirement, all coaches from all sports (that means every Rally Cap, Rookie/Grand Slam, "A", "AA" and "AAA" baseball coach) must have the "Respect in Sport" course completed by June 1 or their name will be removed from the roster.

The course is three hours in length, but can be completed at the coach's leisure, in its entirety or in segments at their own pace. The program is available in both English and French and is provided free of charge to all coaches. To complete this course, click on the Respect in Sport Logo below.
