Oshawa Storm Ringette Association’s NEW Learn to Play Program

About the Learn to Play Program:

1. Intro – Learn to Skate (NEW 4-6) – Players NEW to skating or can only walk on skates.  Gradually adding basic ringette skills.  Repetition is key. By end of February players will start to play mini games. As children become more confident and capable of standing and moving on the ice un-aided, they are able to move into the Learn to Play (Junior) Group. 

2. Junior Learn to Play only (5-7) - Players who have the basic skating skills, have graduated from “intro”.  Players learn both skating and ringette skills. This group will be part of the U7 (under age 7) and will be divided into smaller teams and will play mini-games on Sunday afternoons.

3. Intermediate Learn to Play only (Sunday games) - advanced HL players who need to be challenged.  This group makes up the U8 (under age 8) division and will be divided into smaller teams and will play full-ice scrimmages on Sunday afternoons.  Teams will be divided and balanced with current U8 Regional players

  • ALL Players registered in The Learn to Play program will receive their own team jersey.  
  • Players will be on the ice for 2 sessions per week.  Thursday nights at Harman Park and Sunday afternoons at Legends
  • Learn to Play players receive 8 Scary Skate sessions – starting in October (Sunday)
  • Fun team activities throughout the season

Our coaching team continually assesses the skills and needs of each player to ensure they are in the right level and that they move to the next level when appropriate.

Other points to note:

  • Oshawa Storm Ringette Association is operated entirely by volunteers. We count on volunteers to act as coaches, team managers, executives, fundraisers, and score/time keepers. Every parent should be prepared to volunteer their time throughout the year to help the team and the Association.
  • We ask ALL volunteers to provide an up to date copy of a criminal record check. 
  • Full Ringette equipment is required and includes a mandatory CSA approved helmet with a proper Ringette facemask (hockey mask holes are too large and the end of a ringette stick may fit through) and a ringette stick.
  • All on-ice volunteers are required to wear a CSA approved helmet as well.
