Available as online learning modules, Respect in Sport consists of two programs.

The Respect in Sport Parent Program, designed for parents and caregivers, promotes positive sport behaviors and effective communication between parents and coaches, and provides information and tools for understanding of the roles of coaches and officials with a goal of increasing children’s enjoyment of the sport.
