Golf Ontario Introduces the Respect in Sport – Parent Program
For the 2019 season, we will require that at least one parent/guardian per athlete complete the program prior to competing in any Junior Golf Ontario Championship. For those parents who have taken the program through other sport organizations, the process to import their existing certification into our data-base, is simple.
This program is aimed at helping good parents become better sport parents, by providing some information and tools to help us better support our kids in golf. The Respect in Sport – Parent Program is a one hour on-line program. It is internet based, so it can be done anywhere, anytime even on your mobile device. You do not have to complete the program in one sitting, you can come and go from the program and it remembers where you left off. Recertification is required every three years. While the requirement will be for one parent or guardian per athlete to complete the program, we strongly urge parents/guardians to sit down as a family and complete the program together.
The cost of the program is $12 plus HST and is paid during the on-line registration process. If parents/guardians have already taken the program, they do not have to repeat it, however they are asked to “Import” their Respect in Sport – Parent Program certification, into our data-base, so we may track which parents have completed the program.
