Respect in Sport - Parent Edition
IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM THE OMHA TO ALL PARENTS EFFECTIVE 2014 & 2015 SEASON
Commencing the 2014 & 2015 Season, the OMHA is implementing the “Respect in Hockey” initiative.
This initiative will require at least one parent or guardian of each player registered in minor hockey throughout the OMHA to complete the e-learning course “Respect in Sport – Parent Program” as a condition of participation.
For Team Officials who are parents of participants, having the Respect in Sport/Prevention Services/Speak Out certification will not be accepted in place of this required Parental Certification. This course is available online now. *IMPORTANT LOG IN INFORMATION: When you begin, the form will ask you for an "Association Code". Leave that space blank as it is not a requirement for the NFMHA Membership.
Full participation in the Respect Initiative from Team Officials, Referees and Linesmen, and now Parents will ensure everyone has received a consistent message.
Please click on the corresponding document for pertinent information and details.
For inquiries regarding the Respect in Sport - Parent Program, please contact Jodi at the Business Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, feel free to contact the OMHA directly at email@example.com
The universal date for expiring certifications is August 31st.
Expiring certifications (August 31st) will no longer be granted a grace period.
Coaches holding this certification, indicated by the INT prefix, will be required to renew their certification by attending a Coach Refresher Clinic or meeting the requirements of the CEP.

While Respect In Sport is still available in a classroom setting, you can now take this required component online. This e-learning course is available on the OMHA Website. (Former names of this OMHA required course are Prevention Sevices and Speak Out.)
Please be sure to keep your confirmation upon completion and receipt.
The Niagara Falls Minor Hockey Association is focussed on providing the best coaching possible for our children. We believe in this and uphold the OMHA's promise to provide the highest quality program. We have the best program, we have the best coaches, but we still need more volunteers to make it better.
The next phase is implementing the OMHA's mandatory training programs for our coaches, trainers, and managers. The OMHA is committed to providing the training, support, and development necessary to ensure our children receive the best mental and physical development we can provide.
While we may not run all of these clinics each season, you are able to access a complete listing of all available clinics throughout the province of Ontario on the OMHA website under Development Programs.
You MUST be properly certified to be rostered with, be on the bench, or practice with any team within the Niagara Falls Minor Hockey Association. All prospective team officials must also apply for a police screening. To obtain your police screening documentation, please contact the Vice President of Representative Hockey.
Please note that all team official positions may require differing certifications. Educate yourself today!
All clinic receipts must be received by the NFMHA Business Office prior to November 1st of each season to be considered for reimbursement. If you participated in a course hosted by the NFMHA, we have a copy of the required receipt.
Commencing the 2014 & 2015 Season there will be a $10.00 replacement fee for all lost reimbursement cheques.
