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 will open to U14 after August 1 if there is room). We need a minimum of 30 participants (plus goaltending) at sign up in order for the program to be viable. 2 half seasons – October-December and 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.
The “2015 Western Canadian Ringette Championships Legacy Scholarships” have now been awarded. Applicants were scored based on their commitment to the sport of Ringette through playing, coaching, officiating and other volunteer activities as well as school and community participation and service.

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:
