Respect In Sport – Parents

Unacceptable parent behaviour is one of the most common reasons that coaches, managers, officials and athletes leave a sport.

In addition to observing SCRA’s Code of Conduct policy and the True Sport Principles, all SCRA members are required by Ringette Calgary to complete the Respect in Sport Programs to assist in empowering and equipping ALL members to consistently demonstrate respect on and off the ice.

All SCRA families must complete the Respect in Sport for Parents program and adhere to the principles throughout the season. We expect all members to display respectful conduct to our officials, coaches, volunteers, players and opponents at all times – on and off the ice, during evaluations, at practices, at games, etc.

  • Ringette Calgary has set a deadline of Oct 31 for each player to have a valid RIS Parent certification on their file. Players without a valid certification after that date may face a suspension from Ringette Calgary until completed. (Please note that the Activity Leader RIS program certificate does not count toward the Parent RIS requirement.)
  • Each season, our RIS Volunteer monitors the certificates of our SCRA families in the Ringette Calgary RIS database. Certificates are valid for 3 years. Families who don’t have a RIS Parent certificate listed with SCRA (or have an expired one) in the database will be contacted.
  • If parents already have a RIS Parent certificate registered with Ringette Calgary, they can log into their account and check their own certificate status at:
  • If you have completed the certificate for a different sport organization (ex. hockey, soccer, etc.), please log into your account and share it with SCRA. Valid RIS Parent certificates from other organizations can be transferred into the Ringette Calgary RIS portal (see the Already Certified – Import Certificate box).
  • If you have another child joining SCRA this year, or you have transferred from another association, you will need to link your certificate to them with SCRA.
