Yes! All players are welcome and can develop their skating skills throughout the season via practices and in game action. Teams for players 10 years old and younger provide skills and development sessions. Players 11 years old and older can register for power skating sessions offered throughout the season as ice time is available. Power skating is optional and requires a separate fee per session.
Does my child need special equipment to play Ringette?
The only differences between hockey equipment and Ringette equipment is the stick and facemask. See the Equipment page for more details.
For players 10 years old and younger, we offer an Equipment Loan Program to allow younger players the ability to try the game without investing in all new equipment. See our Equipment Loan Program page for details.
Where can I get equipment?
See the Equipment page for a list of local retailers and other sources of ringette equipment.
Are there other costs after I pay my registration fee?
Some teams choose to participate in ringette tournaments and other activities throughout the season. These activities aren't covered by the RAB registration fee. Once teams are formed, the coach and team volunteers will decide which tournament/activities the team will do. These are funded through fundraising activities and/or parent contributions.
What is the volunteer bond?
See the Volunteer bond FAQ for all the details.
