Ringette Canada and Ringette Ontario are committed to creating and encouraging safe, fun and healthy environments for players in our children's programming up to and including U10 programs.

Changes, including introducing small-area games (cross-ice and half-ice ringette) as the standard of play, will be introduced as follows:

  • U8 players in 2019/20 piloting implementation
  • U8 players in 2020/21


Small-area games will be implemented through:

  • Size of the playing surface (not to exceed half the ice surface)
  • Number of players on the ice
  • Size of nets
  • Goal tending options (no goalie, rotating goalie, designated goalie)
  • Modified rules, including a number of passes, shift lengths etc.
