Etobicoke Ringette Programs

Etobicoke Ringette Association has something for everyone.  Whether you are new to skating, want to learn ringette, transferring from another sport such as hockey, ringette is a fast, fun sport designed to teach players teamwork through skating, passing and shooting skills. 

We offer teams and programs at all levels. If you are unsure where to register your child, please contact us at comeplay@etobicoke-ringette.com and we'll be happy to help.

The program is led by experienced instructors with support from some of our teenage players (participant to instructor ratio is about 5:1 depending on skill level)

  • The FUN 1 Learn-to Skate component is offered to non-skaters and those with very basic skills. At the beginning of the program, we offer nearly one-on-one assistance for non-skaters until they can stand and shuffle along

  • The FUN 2 Learn-to-Play component is offered to children who have some skating ability who want to improve their skating skills, learn ringette skills, and play ringette scrimmages/games.
