Covid-19 Information

In accordance with Ringette Canada and Ringette Ontario guidelines, the Hamilton Ringette Association has named Carmelle Gardiner as our Safety Leader.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Carm for her dedication to the HRA and the Covid-19 processes so that our members can safely return to play this season.

The HRA is committed to keeping everyone safe.  Our Return to Play Guidelines can be found here.

The provincial government clarified the requirements for COVID vaccination as it pertains to youth sport. 

  • Everyone 18 years and older are required to provide proof of double vaccination prior to being granted access to the facility
  • Athletes 12 - 17 will not be required to provide proof of vaccination, provided they are actively taking part in the scheduled event.
  • Those 12 - 17 who are not actively taking part WILL be required to provide proof of vaccination. This will include siblings, friends, family etc. who are attending as spectators
  • Athletes under 12 are exempt from vaccination requirement

**Those who qualify for an exemption from vaccination will have to provide the necessary documentation before access will be granted to a facility**



This is not an HRA policy, these guidelines have been laid before us by the Provincial government and the Public Health department.  Policies are subject to change.  Proof must be provided prior to any athlete taking the ice after September 22
