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 president@hamiltonringette.ca for more information.

Hamilton Ringette Association welcomes Nick Rotundi

The Hamilton Ringette Association is excited to announce our partnership with Nick
Rotundi. Nick and his team will be running our Sunday Learn to Skate program for
children ages 4+ as well as offering a Power skating program for the U10 level and up.


Nick has been teaching players of all ages around Southern Ontario, Quebec and in
Europe for over a decade. He trains players from all levels including House League
beginners to Elite AAA to OHL and even players from the National Hockey League.
Nick’s coaching experience and passion for skill training makes him a well-rounded
instructor with vast knowledge and expertise, and as such he provides a highly sought-
after, unique approach to skating development theories. Nick currently coaches the
Minor Midget Hamilton Huskies AAA, as well as the Men’s Hockey program at
Redeemer College.

Nick’s true passion is helping players further develop their skating;
Stride, Agility and Quickness. His ability to make players understand the mechanics,
quickens the process of increasing speed and agility. Nick surrounds himself with
qualified on-ice staff who support his teaching approach while exemplifying his dynamic.

Hamilton Ringette is excited to have Nick and his team bring their experience and skills
to our programs. Looking forward to a great season. See you all on the ice.
