Games are mostly on the weekends and will start in mid October. Playoff for ERL are on the Family Day long weekend in February and WRL start shortly after that.

NO!! Players pick up skating very fast and within a couple of weeks they are flying across the ice with the rest of the team. By the end f the season they are a Pro!
What kind of equipment do I need?
Most of the equipment is similar to Hockey, with a few key differences. The girdle and ringette pants are unique and the stick is special as well, no you can't use a cut off hockey stick, LOL!
Helmet cages are also different to stop the sticks from going through the holes. To find a detailed list of equipment see the Player Resources tab on our website.
Is financial support available?
Yes, Kids Sport and Jump Start will offer subsidies for low income families.
