The emphasis in this league is on playing the game, sportsmanship, having fun and improving skating and ringette skills.
Players generally range from 7 to 10 years of age. Players have some basic skating ability when they start. Most players are first or second year players.
Regular Season Typically, there is one hour of practice and a game per week. Games are held at Long Branch Arena on Sunday afternoons starting at 2:00 pm. Indoor practices will be held on Thursday evenings at Park Lawn Bubble Rink (Park Lawn & Berry area) at 7:00 pm. Additional ice time for ringette and skating skill development is available at an outdoor rink on Saturday mornings (December to February). Power skating sessions are included in the program.
