Respect in Sports is a mandatory program for all coaches in the Baseball Alberta 'AAA', 'AA' and 'A' Leagues. The Respect in Sports program is designed to give coaches better tools in performing their duties while protecting players from potential liability issues involving harassment, abuse and bullying.
Baseball Alberta feels coaches will see the immediate value once they have completed the 6 (30 min.) modules. Upon completion of the program coaches can go back to any module and review the information from start to finish. This is a tool to assist coaches in becoming better coaches and communicators while protecting everyone's best interest in today's challenging world. Registration and payment for Respect in Sports is done entirely online.
'AAA' & 'AA' Teams - Coaching accreditation will be checked once initial rosters are submitted on April 14th, 2017. The Baseball Alberta Registrar will send a letter to all coaches not meeting the accreditation requirements advising them of a need to complete the Respect in Sports course. Respect in Sports requirements must be fulfilled before June 1st or that coach will NOT be allowed to be on the field and removed from Provincial Roster.
'A' Teams - Coaches accreditation will be checked once initial rosters are submitted on June 12th, 2017. The Baseball Alberta Registrar will send a letter to coaches not meeting the certification requirements advising them if the Respect in Sports online course is not completed by the Provincial Championship weekend then that coach will not be allowed on the field and removed from Provincial Roster.
Please note that Respect in Sport coaching module for other sports is equivalent to the requirement for baseball. However, the Respect in Sport parent module, such as the Hockey Alberta program, is NOT equivalent to the coaching module.
