What is Ringette?

Ringette is a fast-paced, team sport played on ice. The object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team. A goal is scored when a player (or skater), shoots an 8” rubber ring into the opponents net. The ring is controlled by players using a straight stick, similar to the shaft of a hockey stick (without the blade on the end).

Ringette is comparable to many sports. It is similar to hockey because it is played in an ice rink with much of the same equipment. It also resembles soccer, basketball and lacrosse due to rules and player movement. Ringette is a very strategic, fast-paced and considered the ultimate team sport.
