All Hockey Teams in the province of Alberta must have all registered Team Officials certified in the Respect in Sport-Activity Leader/Coach Program OR at least have the equivalent "Speak Out" program certification already completed. ***NEW*** The Speak Out Program will no longer be valid for the 2018-2019 season.
Please click HERE for more information and to take the course. Please be sure to include your RIS Number on your Coaches Application. If you take your course after you submitted your application, please be sure to have it available when you are called on to coach. The cost for the course is $30, plus GST. Keep your receipt if you wish to submit to the McKnight Treasurer for reimbursement.
If you took the RIS Coach Program through another sport like baseball, then you can transfer that information to your account. Below is the information you will need to do this.
To transfer a certificate from another organization to Hockey Alberta's coach program you will need to go to https://ha.respectgroupinc.com/ and choose to register a new user. The first field at the top of the registration page is where you will need to enter your existing certificate number and click check. Once it has been validated you will just need to complete the registration and the certificate will be ported and updated to the Hockey Canada Registry.
