The Respectful Athlete: Online Training

Respect in sports is important. Young athletes must treat other players, coaches, officials, and spectators with respect at all times.

Our respect in sports online training is a self-paced learning experience that most participants can complete within 30 minutes. The objective is to help young athletes deepen their understanding of both acceptable and unacceptable attitudes and behaviours, and identify practical ways to support an inclusive, respectful sport environment.

      • Know how to respond appropriately in situations involving unacceptable behaviours, whether as the victim, the accused, or a by-stander
