Frequently Asked Questions
What is the time commitment like for new players?
For Active Start, there are 15 practices for each session (Fall and Winter) and each practice is 1 hour in length.
Does my child need to know how to skate before enrolling in Active Start?
It is encouraged but not necessary for your child to be able to skate. However, taking a Learn to Skate program may help them feel more comfortable on the ice.
How much does equipment cost?
You will be able to find ringette equipment at sporting stores that sell hockey equipment. Shop around for best value - you do not need to spend a lot to get quality equipment! Also, check out the classifieds section of this website for used gear.
