Ringette is an exciting unique winter sport, played mainly by females but open to all. Ringette is a non-contact sport where players use a straight stick with a specially designed tip and a hollow rubber, blue ring.
Provincial Championships will be held in March and no later than the first week of April of each calendar year.
