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 will be running it’s first Ringette for All (RFA) program starting January 13th 2019, for seven weeks.  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 last them a life time, in and out of the rink.

Nous avons plusieurs entraîneurs et bénévoles francophones.

The Details:

  • The program will run for 7 weeks starting on Jan 13th 2019 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at Walkley arena
  • Our first program will have a maximum of 20 players between the ages of 8 and 16 years.
  • 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.
  • Each on ice session starts with a warm up, a skills session and wraps up with a friendly game where all players get to participate.  Each session is led by NCCP Certified volunteer coaches who are supported on ice by current CORA Players.
  • Parent volunteers are welcome to participate with off ice activities

Who can play?

This program is for players who are unable to play on any other Ringette team due to a developmental disability (cognitive or cognitive+physical).  Can't skate - no problem!  Don't know Ringette?  We'll show you!
