Ringette for All - Breaking down all barriers so everyone can play

Our 2022-2023 team

Many people face barriers to participating in mainstream sport, for example physical disabilities, cognitive disabilities, financial challenges, and/or new to Canada.  Our goal is to change that.

We feel that no one should be excluded from sport and that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the incredible benefits of being part of a team.

Ringette for All is designed to empower our athletes by teaching them the life skills inherent to ringette including:  teamwork, communication, resilience and inclusion, all while having fun!

All abilities welcome - All are part of the team! 

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.

We accept players all season long.
