Our Programs

Classic Ringette

Classic Ringette is comprised of teams who are broken down into levels and participate in league play, practices and tournaments.

This option will require a greater commitment of time and effort than Flex Ringette, but less than Excellence Ringette.

AA Ringette

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.

Chinook League

The Chinook Ringette League includes Classic League Play for U12–U19 teams from southern Alberta.
