About the Nepean Ringette Association (NRA)

The Nepean Ringette Association (NRA) began over 40 years ago to administer and promote the sport of ringette. It has grown steadily from an organization of only 50 players to an association of close to 400 players spread across over 20 teams.

The annual Nepean tournament that is held in November now attracts over 100 teams, and over 2,500 participants and spectators.

When you consider all the coaches, trainers, families and friends of both visiting and home teams that come out to games and tournaments, you can see that the NRA’s “circle of influence” is quite broad, and increasing in size on a yearly basis. In partnering with the NRA, your business will benefit from access to this large audience.

What is Ringette?

Ringette was founded in Canada in 1963 by Sam Jacks, a Recreation Director and sports enthusiast from North Bay, Ontario when he saw the opportunity to create a winter team sport for girls.

Since the early 1960s, the sport has continued to grow and currently boasts nearly 32,333 registered players on nearly 2000 teams, with over 8000 coaches and over 1700 officials. While it is primarily a female sport, there are currently over 700 males playing ringette across the country.

Ringette, like hockey, is played on ice with skates and sticks, and with six players per team on the ice at once. The objective is to score goals by shooting the object of play into the opposing team’s net at either end of the rink during stop-time periods of play. But this is where the comparisons between ringette and hockey really ends.

The emphasis in ringette is on play-making and skating skills. In fact, ringette has become one of the fastest team sports on ice.

Internationally, ringette is played in a number of countries around the world, including Finland, Sweden, the United States, France, Slovakia, Russia, the Czech Republic, and Abu Dhabi.

Since 1990, a world ringette championship has been held on a regular basis, with Canada and Finland being the predominant challengers.
