The RIS is a mandatory program under the playing rules and regulations of Hockey Calgary. One parent must complete this 1 hour online program. The program does not need to be completed for each child registered – it only needs to be completed once.
You can access this site through the Hockey Calgary website. When you first enter the system you will be required to create a profile. Be sure to enter all of your child’s information (each child registered) as this will get tied back to each players profile in the Hockey Canada Registry. Players are not able to participate in the season until this program has been completed.
If you did the RIS program under Hockey Calgary previously then you do not need to do it again. If you have completed an RIS program with another organization other than Hockey Calgary you will need to complete this.

Then click “Visit the Respect in Sport Online Course” link. The RIS program will open up. At the bottom of the page click “Looking for your Certification Number?” link. Enter the name and date of birth of the person who took the course and it will give you your certification number. In the Respect in Sport program there is a portion of the course under profile called Child Management. Add any children that you are registering in hockey.

Volunteer Requirement
The Bow River Bruins Hockey Association (“BRBHA”) is a non-profit hockey association that is run through a volunteer board of directors, executives, and coordinators. The hockey program will only be successful so long as there is a commitment to volunteering by each and every family registered in the BRBHA.
Registration Requirement - Volunteering
The BRBHA requires a volunteer commitment as a condition of registration. Our volunteer policy has changed slightly, please read below to familiarize yourself with the policy. By registering a child in our hockey program you understand and agree to abide by the volunteer policy.
Volunteer Objective
The BRBHA desires to create a transparent volunteer program that encourages and recognizes volunteerism from a maximum amount of members to the benefit of the BRB hockey program. To encourage a culture of strong volunteerism that makes the BRBHA a better organization.
Volunteer Requirement
For Timbit age players each family will be allocated one bingo shift. For all other age categories each family will be required to volunteer in some capacity as outlined by the team volunteer coordinator. Team volunteer opportunities are available with on ice assistance, team manager, clock and score keeper duties, tournament coordinator, social coordinator, team Bingo shift volunteer to name just a few. Families are expected to volunteer with each team their child is on to the required minimum commitment as outlined in your team meeting at the start of the season. Failure to volunteer will result in your volunteer bond cheque being cashed by the association.  If you have a Timbit and older player you must work your Bingo shift for your Timbit player and volunteer for the other team(s) where you have players.
Volunteer Bond
The BRBHA requires a volunteer bond from all member families in the form of an undated cheque payable to the BRBHA for $200.  These cheques will be collected by the Teams and submitted to the BRBHA by October 31. This cheque will be destroyed once the completion of your volunteer commitment is confirmed. A volunteer bond is required for each team where a family has a child playing and applies to all age categories. For example, if you have children on the same team then only one cheque is required, for three children on three different teams then three cheques will be required.
Facility Bingos
As a condition of receiving our current ice allocation from the Bowness Sportsplex, we are committed contractually in providing the required volunteers for the Bowness Community Association’s bingo during the hockey season.  In order for the Bowness Sportsplex to continue to operate and stay open, the income from the bingo operation is necessary.
October 15 – March 31 Bingos
Bingos occurring between these dates will be allocated to individual Bow River hockey TEAMS from the Novice to Midget age groups. Each team will be responsible for providing the necessary volunteers (4) for their bingo date.
September 1st - October 14th & March 1st- June 30th Bingos
Bingo Exemptions
There are no longer any BINGO EXEMPTIONS in Timbits

Working Bingos in lieu of Registration Fees
Bingos can be worked in lieu of registration fees only during the period of April 1 – August 31 each year. A $50 credit will be applied for each facility bingo worked during this period over and beyond the required Facility Bingo.
Volunteer Buyout
The cost of the volunteer buyout is $300. This option is available to you to purchase as so you will not be required to do any volunteering whatsoever. A portion of every buyout goes to help assist the BRBHA with funding for kids in need within our Association.
