A Message from Ringette Ontario:

(July 15, 2020)

After the release of Ringette Ontario’s Return to Ringette (RTR) Guidelines, we announced that we would be hosting a virtual town hall on July 15th to answer any questions you may have surrounding COVID-19, ringette and safety protocols for the upcoming season. In light of the Provincial Government’s recent announcement to enter into Stage 3 of its reopening plan, Ringette Ontario has made the decision to reschedule our town hall. 

Over the next week, we will be working in collaboration with the RO Audit & Risk Standing Committee, SCC and other provincial sport organizations in order to determine how our RTR Guidelines will work within Ontario’s Stage 3 and if areas within our Guidelines need to be revised in order to accommodate for this new information.

Our next virtual town hall will take place next Wednesday (July 22nd) at 6:00 pm on Facebook Live.  We will be joined by Ringette Ontario's Executive Director, Pamela Julian, Technical Director, Karla Xavier and Marketing & Communications Coordinator, Marian Agyei-Gyamera. If you have any questions about 'Return to Ringette', please respond to this email and we will do our best to answer them for you next Wednesday. Please note that all questions submitted prior to July 15th will be added to the question list for next week.

As a community and sport-based organization, we strive to be transparent and informative and want to ensure the Return to Ringette guidelines, documents and resources we share during this time are conducive to the spaces that ringette is played.  

Please visit our website for additional information and resources related to Return to Ringette.

Thank you all for your continued patience, understanding and support during this time.
Best Wishes,
The Ringette Ontario Team

A Message from your Board:

Hello EFRA Families,

First and foremost, the board of directors at Elora Fergus Ringette hope all are well and safe at this time.

We are reaching out to connect with our members, to let you know we are working behind the scenes to ensure that we can get back on the ice in a way that is safe for our players, coaches, bench staff, parents and fans.

On June 5, Ringette Ontario (RO) announced that all ringette activities are suspended until at least Sept. 1, 2020 and all sanctioned tournaments and league play are suspended until at least Jan. 1, 2021.  This statement is from RO.  Please understand that actual return to play action is still dependent on Provincial Emergency Orders, Guelph Wellington Dufferin Public Health (GWDPH), the Township of Centre Wellington and what our Board decides.

Ringette Canada has created a National Direction for Return to Ringette document, to read the full document, please click here .  From that document, Ringette Ontario has created their own Return to Ringette (RTR) guidelines for play in Ontario.  To read that document, please click here EFRA will be considering both of these documents as well, will be working with GWDPH, the Township of Centre Wellington and other ice users in Centre Wellington to create a feasible plan that works for our community.   

Registration is currently open with a $100 deposit, $50 for new U8 age players.  Season Registration Fees are suspended at this time, when set, fees will be in line with the costs that reflect the realities of the season and the ice time we are able to offer.
The health and safety of our families and community members continue to be our top priority.  We ask that all members please be patient with us; the documents mentioned above outline a number of changes, many things we have never had to consider before.  Ringette this season will look different from what it has in the past, that we do know.

Some FAQ’s regarding the season from the RO point of view have been posted on the Ringette Ontario website.  For EFRA updates, please refer to our website and/or our Facebook page.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the chair at [email protected].
