Financial Policies

Fee Payment

Members of the City of Ottawa Ringette Association (CORA) are responsible for the payment of player registration fees in accordance with the schedule of fees stipulated at the time of registration.  Every player must be registered before stepping on the ice for insurance purposes.  If an incident occur during tryouts or throughout the season, the insurance available through the Ringette Ontario protects the player and CORA.

Registration and Power Skating Fees must be made by credit card, EMT or by cheque payable to the City of Ottawa Ringette Association.  See Registration page for current fee schedule.


The CORA refund policy serves two purposes:

  • To allow a player who has registered with CORA to withdraw from ringette for the season.
  • To allow a new-to-ringette player to try ringette for the first time.

Withdrawing from CORA for the season may occur for many different reasons. The executive reserves the right to review a withdrawal and waive any holdbacks at its discretion.

There are a number of fixed costs once our season gets underway, as such, our Refund Policy is as follows:


Withdrawal BEFORE August 31

Withdrawal BEFORE September 30

Withdrawal BEFORE October 31

Withdrawal AFTER October 31

All CORA fees (excludes those paid to Ringette Ontario at registration).

All CORA fees less $50.

All CORA fees less $100.

No refunds.

Returned Cheques

It is the responsibility of the parents/guardians of any player to ensure that full payment of registration fees is made to CORA on a timely basis.  In the event that a cheque is returned by the bank because of non-sufficient funds, an immediate replacement cheque is expected.

Where such cheque is not forthcoming, the Treasurer will request the replacement cheque.  If a replacement cheque is not remitted within 5 working days, the Treasurer will notify the Registrar and the President of the Association who will contact the player’s parent/guardian.

If a replacement cheque is not remitted within 5 working days of this contact, the player will not be permitted to step on the ice until such time as payment is made.
