2022/23 U14AA Program

Ringette Manitoba and Local Association (LA) Presidents met on 2022-03-06 to discuss, amongst other things, the status of U14AA.  Most of you will be aware that there has been some talk regarding Ringette Canada’s modernizing sport delivery with playground to podium pathways for athlete development.  RMB, and other provinces, are in different stages of delivery.

To get a sense of its membership’s interest in AA, Ringette Manitoba developed a survey which was circulated to 2008 to 2010 athletes (U12 major age and U14) at the end of December.  The results were compiled and shared with the LA Presidents in January.  During the Presidents meeting, the survey results along with 2021/22 player registration data was examined in detail.  After presenting the results of the survey in a variety of different formats, the consensus was that the U14AA program should be suspended for the 2022/23 season.  This decision was not made lightly and many factors were considered including the fact that a very small number of athletes would be impacted.  Local Associations will continue to offer ‘A’ division teams this season, however, the team formation process will change.  The focus on this age division will be advancement of their skill development.  There will be an opportunity for players to participate in a RMB advanced development program running concurrently with the regular season culminating in an opportunity to participate on teams that will represent Manitoba at the 2023 Western Canadian Ringette Championships which will be held in Winnipeg. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. As more information about the development program becomes available we will pass it along.

Thank you

Season ends

River East Ringette would like to update everyone with the latest decisions on the current ringette season.

Every day for the last several months we have been analyzing the impact of Covid-19 on our sport and season. With the most recent restrictions not allowing organized indoor sport until at least early March, we have decided to cancel the season and refund participants much of the fees paid.

Issuing refunds is a time consuming process, involving many calculations and transactions.  We again ask for your patience as we finalize the calculations to ensure appropriate refunds.   

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our coaches, junior coaches and team volunteers for their time and efforts with our players this season. Without their dedication, we would not have been able to achieve the number of skates our members enjoyed prior to the lockdown and further activities thereafter. 

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding while we struggle through the uncertainty of this season. 

River East Ringette Board

Dreaming of Icetime…

As provincial COVID-19 restrictions continue, many are wondering where we are going with ringette this season. Winnipeg Ringette League has already cancelled their season, but there remains hope for some lifting of restrictions after February 12. While any game play cannot be expected immediately after, we continue to explore potential practice/skill opportunities if plausible.

Results from Ringette Manitoba’s Return to Ringette survey in December showed positivity towards continuing some means of ringette activities once allowed. Ringette association presidents have met numerous times to discuss any possibilities. Some associations are cancelling; some are hanging on.

For River East, we have some rinks that have decided to no longer maintain their indoor ice and others are contemplating the same. This means even when restrictions are lifted, there will be strong competition for remaining ice facilities. Your RERA board has not yet made a final decision.

Understandably so, we’ve had some inquiries on refunds for fees paid this year. We are going to wait until the February 12 provincial announcement before deciding on how the season will proceed and how to assess refunds. Funds for sunk costs such as Community Club fees and Ringette Manitoba (insurance) will be retained as well as ice times that have been used including tryout costs.

Thanks for your patience and stay tuned for further updates.
