Ringette players heading to, or already attending University may want to consider the option of playing competitive ringette at University. University Ringette teams operate at several universities in Ontario and across Canada. These teams provide a wonderful option which keeps many players involved in the sport who would otherwise likely hang up the skates during their years of post secondary study. An instant community of friends awaits young women when they join a university ringette team, while embarking on the most important educational journey of their lives. This dimension of the sport, and the retention it represents, is of great importance to the long term viability of Ringette.
