Ringette is a unique winter ice sport played primarily by females, but is open to all. This non-contact sport has players using a straight stick and a hollow rubber ring. Ringette rules require individuals to pass over each blue line, thus encouraging team play.
Ringette is now played across Canada, including the Northwest Territories. Ringette boasts a total registration of 20,000 players across Canada and is played internationally in Estonia, Finland, Sweden and the United States. The sport has also been introduced to Japan, Australia, Czechoslovakia and Switzerland.
Regina Ringette is divided into divisions based on age. Our season runs from October to April and all league games are played at the various arenas in Regina and surrounding area. You can expect to play at least 22 league games during the season. Most teams practice during the season and attend various tournaments. Some teams even travel out of province!
Our B level teams are divided up equally in order to keep the FUN in our sport. If teams in our A & AA programs win their respective Provincial Championships they earn the right to represent Saskatchewan at the Canadian Ringette Championships (AA) and Western Canadian Ringette Championships (A).
- U9 (Bunny) (5, 6, 7 & 8 year olds) is our youngest playing division, where fun and learning the basics is foremost. This is where your child will learn to skate.
- U10 (Novice) (8 & 9 year olds) is the next level where fun is still important, but the game is a bit more competitive. Teams in our novice division will attend tournaments. Some teams travel out of province for tournaments.
- U12 (Petite) (10 & 11 year olds) is where your child will most likely learn the position they will favour. The game is more competitive, with many opportunities to participate in tournaments.
- U14 (Tween) (12 & 13 year olds) is when things really start to heat up. The game is very fast paced and you can really see what we mean when we say “It is the fastest game on ice”. Again there are many opportunities for tournaments and participation in Provincial Playoffs. We offer B and A levels of play at this level.
- U16 (Junior) (14 & 15 year olds) is where the emphasis is on technique and tactics. You will notice more “finesse” in the game. We offer B, A & AA levels of play.
- U19 (Belle) (16, 17 & 18 year olds) is a balance between sport, family, school, and work. The program is more flexible as players have more commitments. We offer a B, A & AA program at this level as well.
- Our 18+ (Open) division (30 and over) offers a place for the mature athlete. The schedule is very flexible as is required by these players. We offer C, B & A levels of play.
