Parent RIS Course

Parents, Please Ensure Your Child May Play This Year ...

As we have previously advertised, the OMHA has changed its eligibility requirements for this season.  The Ontario Minor Hockey Association has implemented a new mandate that parents must complete a ‘Respect in Sport’ (RIS) course before their child may be on a team.  We have waited as long as we can for parents to complete this mandated course.  However, our own deadline is fast approaching.  The SSMHA must send official team rosters to the OMHA soon.  Because of this new requirement, we cannot submit the name of any player whose parent(s) has/have not completed the RIS course.  This means that you must complete the course before November 14th.  If you do not, we will have no other option but to remove your child from their team.


Our records indicate that a significant number of parents have yet to complete the RIS course. 
Please go to the OMHA website as soon as possible.  The quickest way to find the correct webpage is to go to the SSMHA Website.  In the middle of the menu line, you will see an item titled ‘RIS Online’.  If you go to that page, you will find a link that says ‘TO ACCESS OMHA WEBSITE AND ONLINE RIS PROGRAM CLICK HERE. ‘ If you click on that link, you will be taken to the appropriate page on the OMHA website.


Because it is the OMHA website, once there you are out of our control.  If you have any questions or technical difficulties you must contact OMHA technical support as follows:

To contact the Helpdesk by phone: 1-866-945-9906

To contact the Helpdesk by email: [email protected]

For Questions of a non-technical nature, please contact: [email protected]


The Association’s mandate is to provide a worthwhile hockey program for Saugeen Shores youth.  In this case, we literally can’t do that without the parents.  The course itself is not that difficult or time consuming.  Thank you for helping your child participate in this worthwhile activity.
