Ringette Ontario believes in supporting the development of healthy, happy athletes - for life! As part of their initiative to build future ringette player, the FUNdamentals was introduced to provide a progressive approach to learning the sport. There are three categories in the FUNdamentals program: categories in children’s ringette - FUN1, FUN2, and U10 (FUN3).
Both FUN1 and FUN2 divisions use small-sized nets and play adapted games of 3 on 3 and 4 on 4 respectively. Smaller spaces ensure more touches, interactions, shots on net, and passes. Teams are split into smaller squads to ensure the majority of players are participating at a time. With these adaptations in the FUNdamentals divisions, children can experience maximum participation, practice learned skills, and move through divisions based on skill and readiness.
For more information on this progressive program, check out more from Ringette Ontario.
Registration fees cover the following items:
Additional skill clinics, power skating, extra practices, and other wardrobe expectations are paid for separately by the parent/player and are not part of the registration fee. These additional costs are generally optional and will be communicated in advance to player families.
In 2022/2023, the Muskoka Royals, through a partnership with the Town of Gravenhurst Terence Haight Fund, are excited to offer gear bags to new players at the FUN1 and FUN2 levels. These bags contain all the equipment needed to play ringette (except for helmet and skates) and are available for a $100 deposit. At the end of the season, parents can choose to return the gear and bag to receive their deposit back, or purchase the equipment for an additional $100. This $200 gear bag contains almost $300 of gear - a great way to get into the sport!
NEW in 2022/2023: Please note a few changes to the registration fees this year:
