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