Respect in Sport (RiS)

Important Change and Effective Immediately

RiS Certification - 5 Year Expiry
Respect in Sport (RiS) is a tool designed to assist leaders to identify and respond to abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying. This program not only protects players but also prepares and educates the leaders associated. Currently, RiS is a mandatory training program for all registered Coaches and Team Personnel of Provincial Sport Governing Bodies in Saskatchewan.

This year RiS announced a 5 year expiry date for all RiS certifications province wide.

In our continued effort to stay up to date and aligned with our partnership programs. The Saskatchewan Soccer Association will also require that all coaches and team personal maintain an up to date RiS certified status. As such, anyone who has completed the RiS training in 2013 or earlier will now be required to re-certify prior to the start of the 2019 indoor season.

How do I re-certify?

Coaches and Team Personnel whose certification has expired will or may already have received an email notification from RiS notifying them of the expiry. If you are not sure or didn’t receive an email notification we recommend that you login to your RiS account by visiting
