RESPECT IN SPORT Powered By Docstoc

Sport Manitoba believes in being proactive in ensuring sport in our province is safe and
welcoming for all participants.

Respect in Sport helps up promote those values through a simple and convenient on-line
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.
