SHOW RESPECT is a not-for-profit association which has as its goal the support of all facets of the SHOW RESPECT campaign and the generation of funds for the campaign.

Professional sportsmen and sportswomen already have an important position as role models in all areas, and this will be the case in future too. One way of exercising this role model function is the launch and support of the SHOW RESPECT campaign.

WAIPU Golden Player Award

A prize from the players for the players, that is the WAIPU WORLD VI and the WAIPU Golden Player Award. Each year WAIPU invites all professional ice hockey players in the world to compose their best team of the year.

The approach is new. The main actors of the sport itself, which are the professional hockey players who can determine next time who should be among the best players in the world professional hockey leagues.

Professional ice hockey players love every award, be it from fans or media. But the recognition from a peer; another ice hockey player who knows what is required to perform and be successful in this game, that is the prize they covet the most, besides winning championships and cups, naturally…

WAIPU will organise the vote for the first time in 2014. Every year the world players' union, with the help from all of its associations distributes the ballots all over the world. The rule is simple: each professional player can vote for 2 NHL, 2 KHL and 2 rest of the World players for the WAIPU WORLD VI as well as for the best player of the World the WAIPU Golden Player.
