The Game of Ringette

About Ringette

Ringette is a Canadian game that was first introduced in 1963 in North Bay, Ontario. Developed originally for girls, ringette is a fast-paced team sport on ice in which players use a straight stick to pass, carry, and shoot a rubber ring to score goals.

Ringette playing rules require players to pass the ring over each blue line in order to advance the play, creating excellent team participation.


Why Ringette?

Isn’t ringette just hockey for girls?

No way! Ringette is its own distinct sport with different rules than hockey. Ringette is faster than hockey and there is more passing so your daughter will be part of the play.

Why should I choose Ringette over Girls Hockey?

If you want your daughter to be a part of a sport that encourages team-building, on ice skills and fun, ringette is worth looking into.

Ringette is not hockey for girls ... different rules ... different equipment ...different skills ... different game!
