*** I Did my Parent Respect in Sport but It's not Associated to my Child ***
If you did your Parent Respect in Sport but are still being told that we can't put your child on a roster because they have don't have a parent with a completed Respect in Sport course then one of two things is wrong. Either, you didn't complete the course or you did not associate yourself with the player.
1. Verify that you do indeed have a Parent Respect in Sport Certificate.
- You will either be shown your certification number or you will received a notice that it could not be found.
- Woo Hoo! I found my certificate number! - Proceed to Step 2
- Bummer. I did not find my certificate number. - Check spelling and date of birth. If it looks right then go back to the log in page and Select the Helpdesk link to get help from the Respect In Sport team.
2. Associate your Parent Respect in Sport to your child
This should have been done when you first took the course but if for some reason it wasn't, here are the steps to connect your certification with your child's Hockey Canada ID.
- Enter you log in credentials and click <Login>
- Click the <Profile> button
- Click the <Child Registration> button
- Enter the requested information about the child you are associating to. (It's important that it is the same information that is in their Hockey Canada ID)
- Click the <Add This Child> button
Do this for each child that needs to be associated to your certification number
