It is with disappointment that Ringette Calgary announces the cancellation of two annual events for the 2020-2021 season.
Sadly, due to challenges placed upon us with restrictions due to Covid-19, we are not able to proceed with hosting the 2021 City Championships. We also will not be proceeding with the annual Active Start/U10 year end Friendship Tournaments.
We know this announcement is probably not a surprising one, but it is still a disappointment for all.
We look forward to hosting all of our teams once again next season, in 2022.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
The Ringette Calgary Board
Ringette Calgary and the Chinook League require the wearing of face coverings/masks by coaches in all areas of every facility including dressing rooms, players benches, penalty boxes, and all other public spaces, regardless of facility protocol or municipal bylaw.

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.
It was an amazing weekend of ringette at the 2020 Alberta AA Provincials in Spruce Grove. Congratulations to the following teams who finished in the medal rounds and qualified for WCRCs (U14AA) and CRCs (U16AA/U19AA):
- U14AA Red – Gold
- U14AA White – Silver
- U16AA Tenacity – Bronze
- U16AA Force – 4th
- U19AA Strike – Gold
- U19AA Blade – Silver
