Strathmore Soccer Association (SSA) is committed to creating a positive soccer experience for all and requires all SSA registered teams to have a minimum of two (2) team officials and any regular grassroots coach or volunteer successfully complete the Respect in Sport program. Respect in Sport educates youth leaders, coaches, officials and participants to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination.
The cost to certify in the program is $30.00 and will be valid for five (5) years.
If a coach has previously certified in the Activity Leader program (for another sport) they can import their certificate into CMSA's program at no cost.
If you have previously certified in the Respect in Sport Activity Leader program, Respect in Soccer, SpeakOut Online, or Respect in School, enter your existing certification number in the box provided and select "Check." Once your profile has been found and loaded, complete the registration and select "Submit."
