Mark your Calendars!
The virtual Ringette Calgary Mandatory Coaches Meetings will be held:
As space is limited, anyone wishing to participate in the meeting must pre-register.
Registration details will be posted as soon as they are available. Please check back.
For all teams participating in Ringette Calgary league play, the HEAD COACH IS REQUIRED to attend one of two Ringette Calgary Mandatory Head Coaches Meetings held each season.
Regardless of how many teams an individual is associated with they may NOT represent multiple teams at the coaches meeting. It is also recommended that in addition to the head coach, the team manager attend.
The RC Scheduler is working on putting together cohorts. Once the cohorts are completed and the travel games are scheduled, the remaining game information will be sent to the association schedulers to for them to complete the process.
We appreciate everyone’s patience as we reinvent League Play!

Ringette Calgary will once again be offering Flex Ringette 2020-2021 season. The program is being designed to meet the needs of athletes who wish to have less time commitment and a competitive experience. Currently, U16 and U19 players are eligible (and may open to U14). We need a minimum of 30 participants (plus goaltending) at sign up in order for the program to be viable. Half season – January-March. Based on feedback from last year we will be implementing some changes.
For details on Flex Ringette and Registration information visit the Flex Ringette page.

Jaimie Nelson Awarded Ringette Alberta Senior Official of the Year:
This award is given to an official that has been active more than 5 years, and demonstrates strong performances and commitment to the sport.
This last year has been a year of great accomplishments for our Senior Official of the Year, Jaimie Nelson. Not only did she officiate at the Canada Winter Games in February 2019, but she also was one of three officials from Canada selected to officiate at the World Ringette Championships in November of 2019. She became Alberta’s only Level 5 official by attending several CRCs, officiating the NRL, and attending AA Provincials consistently. She is also a Provincial certified evaluator, has supervised AWGs, and instructs clinics whenever her very busy life allows.
Recently Ringette Calgary has received some queries as to the methodology for published tiebreakers for team rankings for the following:
