Adapted Ringette – Meeting Every Player at Their Level
Ringuette pour tous - où les enfants avec des besoins spéciaux peuvent jouer à leur niveau
Physical activity is beneficial for the body and the mind. Some children, due to varying levels of physical or cognitive abilities, may not have been provided the opportunity to participate in team sports. Our goal is to change that.
We feel that no one should be excluded from sport and that every child should have the chance to experience the incredible benefits of being part of a team.
CORA is thrilled to be offering a Ringette for All (RFA) program for children with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. True Sport providing the guiding principals in all CORA programs, the RFA players will learn the fundamentals of the sport as well as develop life skills that will benefit them, in and out of the rink.
All abilities welcome - All are part of the team!
Any player, eight years and older, with a developmental and/or physical disability that prevents them from playing on any other team is welcome.
Can’t skate yet – no problem! Not sure what ringette is – we’ll show you! From “learn to skate” to ringette skill development – we will coach all players at their level and provide one to one coaching if needed.
Players require helmet with Ringette cage and skates. A full set of Ringette equipment is strongly recommended and some equipment is available to borrow on a first come first served basis.**
Here is the list of recommended equipment:
- CSA approved helmet with ringette mask (triangle-shaped holes to protect against the square ended stick)
- neck guard
- shoulder pads
- elbow pads
- shin pads
- ringette pants and girdle OR hockey pants and socks
- ringette stick
** Thanks to generous donation from the Ringette community, we have sticks and some equipment to loan to new players on a first come, first served basis.
A huge Thank you to our Partners and Sponsors
