New ringette players wanted!


Ringette in Canada has never been more popular.

Numbers have hit an all-time high across the country with more than 30,000 players and 2,000 teams registered last year.

The fast-paced game is growing across the prairies too, with Winnipeg and surrounding area leading the Manitoba growth. A dedicated group of players and volunteers have brought ringette back to Brandon in recent years, but we need to keep introducing new players to the fun and friendship of the sport to keep it healthy.

Come Try Ringette is a free event where kids get to try an hour of ringette with fun on-ice and off-ice activities on Saturday, Sept. 10 at the Enns Brothers Arena in the Keystone Centre. Kids only need a helmet and skates to take part. Sticks and rings will be provided. A limited number of helmets are also available.

"Brandon Ringette is very happy to host this event as it gives kids starting at age four a chance to come try out the sport and learn what ringette is all about," said Sara Bell, Brandon Ringette Association president. “Once the players get out on the ice and see how much fun it is, they can’t wait to come back.”

In addition to an hour of ice time, Come Try Ringette will include face-painting and entertainment, as well a used equipment sale. The event starts at 1 p.m. Parents can register at or email for more information.
