For more information, refer to the RiS FAQs or email



  1. I didn’t indicate that I wanted to take the training when I registered; how can I register for training?
    Send an email to  and indicate which clinic you would like to take.  Include your birth date in the email.
  2. If I registered for the clinic and cannot attend, what should I do?
    Send an email to letting us know you can’t attend the clinic.  If you would like to attend one of the other clinics, let us know that as well.
  3. Why do I have to take the Respect in Sport (RiS)?
    SaskSport has mandated that all coaches of all sports must complete the RiS.  This is an important aspect of coaching.  If you have taken it in another sport, you don’t have to take it again; just apply for a basketball RiS number and send it to  If coaches don’t take the RiS, the program will lose the  grant that is used to pay for the tournament and player fees will have to increase.
