Parents looking to register their kids for hockey in Winnipeg this fall must now complete the Respect in Sports program.

The plan for the requirement was announced earlier this year.

Parents with kids playing in the Hockey Winnipeg program are receiving email reminders about the program ahead of fall registration.

The online course costs $12 and takes about an hour to complete. One parent per household is required to finish the program.

Hockey Winnipeg said the course will be good for five years.
