Respect in Sport

The West Rouge Soccer Club is proud to be the first soccer club in Scarborough taking a leadership role in protecting the best interests of young soccer players, and all those involved in our game, by introducing the Respect in Sport for Parents program to our organization. We are taking this important step with Ontario Soccer, following the lead of multiple sports organizations operating in the province of Ontario.

Starting in the 2019 Outdoor Season, West Rouge Soccer Club is making the Respect in Sport for Parents program mandatory for any one parent or guardian of each player registered in any of our programs. The certificate is transferable from any other sport in Ontario, and covers the entire family. Please help us to make soccer safe and fun for all participants in our community.

The Respect in Sport for Parents program is a one-hour online module for parents/guardians, reinforcing their role in their child’s activities, encouraging positive sport behaviors, and providing insight into the various roles other individuals play, such as coaches and officials. This program empowers parents to ensure the safety of their children, encourage positive and effective communication, and to enhance a child's overall enjoyment of soccer. The online course costs $12 + tax and is transferable to other sports involved in Respect in Sport.

The Respect in Sport for Parents program must be completed before we can add your son or daughter to any team roster.
