Respect in Sport (RiS)

Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders is a required training program for all registered coaches and team personnel of provincial sport governing bodies in Saskatchewan. Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders (RiS) is a tool designed to assist leaders to identify and respond to abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying. This program not only protects players but also prepares and educates the leaders of sport programs and activities. RiS certifications are valid for 5 years, and all coaches and team personnel must recertify after the certification expires.
This training is available at no cost, online, at 
Coaches and team personnel who are currently active and have not yet completed their RiS training need to be aware that they are not eligible to be involved with any team until they complete their RiSSubject to fines and discipline, Member Organizations are responsible to suspend participation of coaches or team personnel until they complete RiS. It is encouraged that individual coaches ‘transfer’ their Respect in Sport training into the NCCP transcript at the time of re-certification, for easier record-keeping. *The 5 year expiry is only in affect for activity leaders (coaches or team personnel); it is not in affect for the Respect in Sport for Parents program.

How do I re-certify?

Coaches and team personnel whose certification has expired will or may already have received an email notification from RiS notifying them of the expiry. If you are not sure or didn’t receive an email notification, we recommend that you login to your RiS account by visiting
