Ringette emphasizes team play over individual stardom.
Deliberate contact is prohibited.
Ringette offers competition at every skill level and for (nearly) all ages — recreational leagues, elite leagues, university, National Ringette League, and international competition.
EFRA hosts teams and divisions categorized by age as of December 31st in the year the season starts.
Within each age group are levels of play, which include B & C (regional) and A & AA (provincial/competitive).
Depending on the age group, tournaments are held throughout the season, with Regional Championships being the highlight for B & C level teams, while Provincials are the finales for the A & AA level teams that qualify.
Boys are welcome to play at any age level but are restricted to regional house league teams (non-competitive).
Provincial Champions in the U16 and U19 AA divisions go on to the Canadian National Ringette Championships, and U14 AA Provincial Champions represent Ontario at the Eastern Championships.
Ringette strongly promotes the physical learning principles of Long Term Athlete Development.
Ringette seeks to develop individuals to their maximum potential as an athlete and as a person.
