Community Spirit

I just wanted to e-mail a feel good story from our ringette community. I played ringette for years and years but haven’t for a couple of years, and so, the kindness seems even bigger somehow. I also own a community company called Beyond Our Image that works on bringing people together to move past our biases and into connection. Part of what I do is volunteer projects within the community, this one in particular is one we run at Christmas where we fill an entire long term facility with presents for all the residents. This year things have been a little bit slower, but not anymore. 4 different ringette teams, from different associations jumped on board and suddenly we do not have much further to go to fill the home. We will be delivering the presents on the 22nd and 23rd – with all those ringette players running around and doing amazing things. It just really touched my heart that even though I am no longer in the community, ringette teams from across the city are rallying together to do good.

Sport Development Survey

In Fall 2021, a three-year strategic plan for sport development was presented to Ringette Calgary to inform sport development initiatives until 2024-25. One of the first priorities identified was the collection of demographic and general data from existing ringette players, to confirm and guide Ringette Calgary’s sport development efforts. A sub committee was formed to identify survey questions and support the coordination of Come Try Ringette events for the upcoming season.

Calgary AA is a higher level of ringette. open to players from the U14, U16 and U19 age divisions. Tryouts are held and teams are drafted for the upcoming season. The AA season extends to participation in both Western and National Ringette Championships, through to mid-April.

Flex Ringette

Flex ringette is the most flexible option for youths and adults.

It allows athletes to stay in the game, play as part of a team and compete, while only having to commit to one game approximately every 7-10 days.

Ringette for All

We are thrilled to be offering a program for children with cognitive and/or physical challenges. Through an inclusive, safe, and fun environment, RFA players will learn the fundamentals of the sport as well as develop life skills that will benefit them in and out of the rink.

Children’s Ringette

Children’s Ringette includes Active Start, U10 and U12. The focus throughout Children’s Ringette is on fun and maximum participation.
