Intro to Ringette programs are targeted primarily at youth and adult participants (but can be made available for older children) who possess basic skating skills but did not begin ringette as early as their peers.
These programs quickly introduce participants to ringette basics so they are confident joining a ringette team after completion.
Program components include rules orientation, basic strategies of the game, and time to practice the basics of ring control.
Each association will develop its own program with different frequency and lenth of program, e.g., once per week for eight weeks.
Generally, Learn to Skate programs lead into Intro to Ringette programs and these lead into Flex or Classic ringette. To see how these and all the other programs relate to one another, check out the Find Your Ringette page
