In order for our association and the ringette community to continue to grow and provide a unique, healthy and fun activity for our players we must ensure we spread the word.
Unfortunately, ringette is still one of the best kept secrets in sports. We're asking for your help to change this. Our Learn to Skate & U8 program still has room for 20 more players.
If you know of anyone aged 4-8 who you think would like to try this great sport please share your experience with them and help us expand this great game!
Details of the program;
Our 20 week program runs Sundays at 4pm out of Inch Park Arena - Start date - October 21st.
This season we're partnering with N'ce Stix skating to provide the highest quality skating instruction going. In addition to this our own Ringette coaches will introduce aspects of the sport as the season progresses using game based learning that has proven to keep the kids engaged. Our program cost is $225 for the season and we offer a free equipment lending program (details below). Please visit www.hamiltonringette.ca to register. You can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
