Children's Ringette - Learn to Play

The Children’s Ringette initiative represents a concerted effort to adjust ringette practices and competitions to meet the needs of children while promoting a fun, safe and healthy environment which supports the development of physical literacy and the long-term development of all players. Children’s Ringette is a program that provides age and stage appropriate physical activity experiences for ringette players under the age of 10.


Program Highlights:

  • Ringette experience that is tailored to the age, size, and skill level of participants
  • Participants are grouped by developmental stages rather than chronological ages and are able to move up when they are ready
  • Emphasis on fun and fundamental skill development
  • Increased opportunities for participation and engagement
  • Adapted gameplay including small-area games and small nets


Children's Ringette Divisions:

There are three progressive age categories in Children’s Ringette - FUN1, FUN2, and U10 (FUN3).

  • FUN1 is for children who are new to ringette or skating, learning basic game structure, and still developing basic skills. This group plays cross-ice.
  • FUN2 is for children who are learning to lengthen their stride, ready to learn more rules of ringette, and have developed some basic skills. This group plays Mini Ringette.
  • U10 (FUN3) is for children who demonstrate that they have acquired the physical, cognitive, and social readiness for more challenging play. This group plays full-sized ringette.


Both FUNdamentals 1 & 2 divisions use small-sized nets and play adapted games of 3 on 3 and 4 on 4 respectively. Smaller spaces ensure more touches, interactions, shots on net, and passes. Teams are split into smaller squads to ensure the majority of players are participating at a time. With these adaptations in the FUNdamentals divisions, children are able to experience maximum participation, practice learned skills, and move through divisions based on skill and readiness. For more program information, CLICK HERE
