Effective November 26th 2021, all indoor facilities used for Organized Sports and Recreational Fitness Activities require that each person 12 years and older who attends for the purpose of actively participating in be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (or valid medical exemption).

Ringette Association of Burlington is working with Halton region and the city to understand how vaccination eligibility and compliance will work for our participants turning 12 in January/February.  Additional information will be provided when it becomes available.

Like all things related to COVID,  we are reacting quickly to a changing situation.  We ask for your patience as we adjust to these new requirements.  


Here’s what to expect for each visit;

  • Complete the COVID pre-screening for all attendees:
    • RAB team members and bench staff complete the COVID screening in the RAMP team app 
    • All parents, spectators and visiting teams must complete the City of Burlington COVID screening
    • If you are having technical difficulties, the previous version of the COVID pre-screening is still available.
  • Show proof of vaccination or exemption, and identification, per the tables below
  • We are not allowed to retain health information so this process must occur each time
