Welcome to the 2016-2017 Initiation Program hockey (IP) for children born in 2010-2011. My name is Chantale and this is my 3rd year as IP convenor and fourth year with KMHA hockey. I am looking forward to be responsible for the safety and development of all the children as they grow into hockey players!
At least one parent or guardian of a participant of each household at the IP and Novice levels, regardless whether first, second or third year of participation, and those parents or guardians of new registrants up to midget level, must take the on-line “Respect in Sport Parent Program”. If you have completed this course last year, you will not need to complete this again.
This is a 1 hour online course, cost is $12.00. 1 parent or legal guardian per household must complete before September 1st or their player will not be able to go on the ice until completed. Please note, if you have taken respect in sport in the past as a coach or team official, you must also take this version (the Parent version) click here to take the program https://heoparent.respectgroupinc.com/secure/
As the convenor, I take direction from the VP of hockey programs (Ralph Petersen) as well as the Director of House Programs.
