Sport Manitoba believes in being proactive in ensuring sport in our province is safe and welcoming for all participants. Respect in Sport (RiS) helps us promote those values through a simple and convenient online training course for coaches and sport leaders. It is designed as a tool to assist coaches in identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying in sport.

Congrats to Renata Janzen, Artistic Gymnastics coach from Arborg, who is the winner of the Respect in Sport Jets prize pack courtesy of Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries. Thank you to all the coaches who entered and recertified before January 31.
In the spring of 2016 Sport Manitoba proudly announced mandatory RiS recertification (every five years) for coaches in Manitoba. We were the first province to make the RiS program mandatory and we are equally proud to be the first to make recertification mandatory. Do you have questions about RiS..we have answers.
