Fair Ice Policy

The Ontario Ringette Fair Ice Policy has been designed to help coaches ensure that all players are developed equally. It is everyone's responsibility to ensure that all players at all levels receive the ice time they need to improve their skills and grow their love of the sport. If you click on the Fair Ice link above you will see the policy and the chart that all teams are held accountable too.

Despite all our efforts at educating our coaches, there are sometimes situations that need to be addressed. If you feel that there has been a violation to the Fair Ice Policy, please click the link above to submit the information to Sport Development for review.

LTAD Compliance Information

"LTAD is a developmental pathway whereby athletes follow optimal training, competition, and recovery regimens from childhood through all phases of adulthood" (CS4L website). Ringette Canada's framework addresses these areas for individuals involved in Ringette at all stages of life.
