WHY YOU SHOULD PLAY RINGETTE
Ringette is played with a ring and a straight stick. The game is played 5 on 5 plus goalkeepers. Teams are made up of 11 to 17 players, with six skaters on the ice at the same time (goalie, two defense, a centre and two forwards).
The ring is passed at every blue line. A player cannot carry the ring over a blue line in either direction. The ring must be passed over the blue line to another teammate. That teammate is permitted to skate ahead of the ring carrier and already be across the blue line before the ring crosses it. This can make the game of ringette very fast.
In the offensive zones the game is played 3 on 3. From the free play line, it’s a game of 3 on 3. Players can rotate in and out of the free play zones producing a lot of movement and creativity.
