Why Coach?

There are many reasons why people get involved in coaching a community sport. Here are a few:

  • as parents we want to spend time with our child in an active way;
  • as individuals we want to volunteer and get involved in our community;
  • as teachers we have taken on extra-curricular school activities;
  • as athletes we want to pursue our passion in a different direction and give back to our community;
  • as fans we simply love sport and want to give coaching a try.

Rule of Two

Following the April 16th, 2020 Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) Partner call and requests from the sport community, CAC have prepared additional information to support sport organizations, coaches, parents/guardians and participants with the steps in the Reasonable Coaching Movement and specifically the Rule of Two for training in a virtual/online environment.

Current Practices for Implementing the Rule of Two

  • Ensure a coach is never alone and out of sight with a participant without another screened coach or screened adult (parent/guardian or volunteer) present.
  • Allow the training environment to be open to observation.
  • Ensure a participant rides in a coach's vehicle with another adult present.
  • Consider the gender of the participant(s) when selecting the screened coaches and volunteers present.
  • Eliminate one-to-one electronic messaging. Ensure that all communications are sent to the group and/or include parents/guardians.

Sport PEI believes in being proactive in ensuring sport in our province is safe and welcoming for all participants. Respect in Sport (RiS) helps us promote those values through a simple and convenient online training course for coaches and sport leaders. It is designed as a tool to assist coaches in identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying in sport.  To get started:
