The HRA Equipment Lending program has been made available thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation. It is intended for Learn to Skate players and first year players (subject to availability). Taking care of the equipment while you are in possession of it and returning it in good clean condition will ensure continued success of this program.

Program details: The basic fee for use of the equipment per year is $25. All participants will be required to sign a promissory contract and place a $250 deposit cheque (postdated to March 25, 2018), payable to Hamilton Ringette, upon taking possession of the equipment. Upon return of the equipment in good clean condition by March 25, 2018, HRA will return or destroy your cheque. If the equipment is not returned, or returned damaged, HRA will cash the cheque and deduct the cost of any damaged or missing equipment and rebate the difference. 

*Equipment includes everything but a helmet, neck protector and skates.

Posted by Webmaster, Last Updated: Mon Sep 25, 2017 @ 7:55 AM

Welcome to all our new and returning families to Hamilton Ringette.

Your coaches are sending out emails to their teams individually, please let me know if you haven't heard from them.

We unfortunately cancelled our planned Sunday Rec team for this year, we will revisit this next year.

Our Fall Power Skating program is open for registration now, spots are limited so don't delay on signing up. (This is for U10 players and up.)

Our equipment lending program will be run a few nights during the last week of September - our Equipment Manager will be reaching out to the Bunnies (U8) and Learn to Skate (LTS) program to set up the times and dates. On-ice LTS/U8 sessions will begin on October 15.

Thanks so much, let us know if you need anything further.

We are pleased to announce that Dave and his team will be coaching our Learn to skate program this season. Learn to skate is a program for children aged 4-8 years of age who want to learn how to skate or want to improve their current skating skills.

I believe wholeheartedly that skating in the basic building block for all skills and success at all levels. I have used my years of experience as a Kinesiology major, AAA and Junior hockey coach, development instructor and researcher to take my learning and create a proven skating program.”

THT provides a safe, fun, yet highly challenging learning environment for athletes of all levels; house league to AAA, junior to pro. Our technical instruction is scientifically researched and proven so we guarantee results.

THT Instructors teach, demonstrate and model the skill, have the athlete perform the skill, and then provide specific feedback for improvement. Through repetition, the player will develop accurate and correct muscle memory.
