WHAT IS RINGETTE
Ringette is a Canadian game first invented by Sam Jacks in North Bay, Ontario in 1963. 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. It is generally acknowledged that ringette is the fastest game on ice, and ringette players are known for their skating and ring handling skills.
Ringette is played in all ten provinces and the Northwest Territories, and has become one of Canada's favorite activities for females, with over 50,000 participants nationwide, including players, coaches, officials and volunteers. More than 7,000 certified ringette coaches are registered in the National Coaching Certification Program, and more than 1,700 registered referees trained under Ringette Canada's National Officiating Program.
No experience is necessary to play ringette. Part of the aim of the sport is helping players to learn and develop a life-long love of this exciting sport. There are various skill levels of play across the nation; beginning with Bunnies, (a learn to skate program) and then formal teams in categories of C, B, A, AA, and in some cases even Regional AAA Teams.
Ringette is played with five skaters and one goaltender on ice and the objective is to put the ring into the opposing net. But ringette has its own unique characteristics which make it known as the “fastest team game on ice”. The ring must be passed over the blue line to another player, which makes ringette a team oriented sport.
