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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to help.
