Why?

Physical activity is beneficial for the body and the mind. Some children, due to varying levels of physical or mental 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 starting again in September 2019.  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.

Nous avons plusieurs entraîneurs et bénévoles francophones.

  • The program will run for the full season, starting in September 2019.  Time and arena to be confirmed.  Likely on Sunday afternoons.
  • We have room for a maximum of 20 players between the ages of 8 and 18.
  • Our goal is to provide an environment where each player is safe, has fun and is challenged to grow and develop.
  • Volunteer Coaches will meet the players at their levels, even providing one to one support if needed.
  • During each session, the players develop their skills, are part of a team, make friends, increase their self confidence.  Each session is led by volunteer coaches who are supported on ice by current CORA Players.
  • Parent volunteers are welcome to participate with off ice activities

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.
