Safe Places and Respect Group, with support from Scotiabank, are running the Sheldon Kennedy Youth Outdoor Classic as part of Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada. The purpose of the tournament is to promote our Safe Places program which focuses on making our community a safer place for children and youth. Therefore, we would like to offer members of the community, including volunteers, parents and fans, the opportunity to take the online Respect in Sport training or become Safe Places – Youth Certified Free of Charge as part of the Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada celebrations. Anyone that takes advantage of our free training, before February 1st, will receive a personal copy of Sheldon Kenendy’s book, ‘Why I didn’t Say Anything’.
Individuals are invited to contact Safe Places Manager Kelly Schafer at [email protected]rent.ca for a free access code and steps to become Safe Places – Youth Certified.
