The health, safety, and well-being of our members is top priority.
Effective Friday, March 13th Ringette Calgary will be cancelling all practices, games, and tournaments.
Although the risk of infection in Alberta is still low, our members have a heightened risk. We will continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide ongoing updates as needed. We also encourage everyone to stay up-to-date through the following websites:
Alberta Health Services
Canada Health Services
More information about Westerns and the Canadian Ringette Championship will come from the Provincial and National bodies.
Thank you for your understanding throughout this challenging time. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

COVID-19 Update – March 13, 2020
Ringette Alberta is cancelling all Ringette Alberta sanctioned events, including Provincial Championships, Regionals, Practices, Exhibition Games until further notice, effective 10:00 AM, March 13, 2020. At this time, this will include our RAB Challenge and RAB Cup events, and we will continue to monitor the situation as time and the information progresses.
We understand that this is a disappointing end to the season, but the health and safety of our members is of the utmost importance. Thank you to our Host Associations, volunteers and Ringette members for their hard work, dedication and time spent this season.
At this point in time, Ringette Canada has not yet delivered a national directive regarding RC sanctioned ringette activity. While they continue to discuss potential measures from the NSO perspective, they are advising PSOs that we follow the advice of our provincial governments and health care offices. We expect the Canadian Ringette Championships and the Western Canadian Ringette Championships will be making independent statements regarding their events.
Although the risk level in Alberta remains low, please practice safe hygiene and risk mitigation to keep everyone safe. More information from the Alberta Government available: https://www.alberta.ca/coronavirus-info-for-albertans.aspx
