Respect In Sport Activity Leader Course

The Respect In Sport (RIS) – Activity Leader course is an 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. The on-line, self-guided course takes approximately 2.5 hours to complete and has been designed with flexibility in mind. Once started the course can be stopped, saved and resumed at your convenience. RIS-Activity Leader certification is issued and valid for 5 years once the online course is completed.  RIS-Activity Leader certification is fully transferable to any other sports program (i.e. Calgary Minor Hockey, Calgary Minor Soccer) using the same RIS certification program.  If you already hold RIS-Activity Leader certification from another sport, please follow the “Program Access Instructions” below.
