To participate people are asked to bring some warm clothes, a pair of gloves and a smile. Anyone with their own skates or helmet should bring those as well as there is a limited amount of association gear available.

Ringette uses a rubber ring and sticks with specially designed tips. The point is to score by shooting the ring into the opponent’s net.

Games include two 15 – 20 minutes periods, depending on the age of the players. Most games last approximately 1 hour.

Teams consist of as few as seven players and as many as 18 players. Six players from each team are allowed on the ice at one time: a goalie, two on defence, two forwards, and one centre.

The players wear full protective equipment and intentional body contact is not permitted.
