"One of the most common reasons coaches, managers, and officials, of all ages, cite for leaving sport is unacceptable parent behaviour. The Respect in Sport Parent Program will help define a model of behaviour for all parents and create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved." Quoted from the Respect in Sport official website.
