After the Government of Alberta’s announcement this afternoon regarding the loosening of some restrictions, it is clear that we will not be able to meet the deadline of February 11th in order to proceed with final league scheduling for the remainder of the 2020-21 season. This means there will not be any further scheduled league games for the Chinook League (U12-U19AA), and the Ringette Calgary Children’s League (AS-U10).
To be clear, that does not mean that your home association will not continue to plan to use any remaining ice for skill development once restrictions are lifted for team sport, and you should expect some communication from them on that shortly.
Thank you to all of you for doing everything you could possibly do to keep your players, parents and team staff as safe as possible during a very challenging season. As League Director, I am very proud of our protocols, compliance and safety record.
Here’s hoping the 2021-22 season comes with a little more “normalcy”, and that we will see you all back in the rinks, but in the meantime, stay safe.
Judy Renneberg, League Director
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

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
