Ringette Ontario Update:
Back On The Ice 2020-2021
 

We thank everyone for their patience and support of the decisions that were made by Ringette Canada and Ringette Ontario regarding the end of the 2019/2020 ringette season and the state of ringette moving forward. While we know that it was not the ending that any of us were hoping for this season, the decision to end the season as we did, was based on guidelines and mandates by Public Health and was what was best for our athletes and families to stay safe.

Since the season came to a close on March 13th, we have not stopped working on how we can get us back on the ice. We continue to work with our colleagues across the country in ringette and within the sport world here in Ontario, as we examine options and plans for the upcoming 2020-2021 ringette season. We encourage everyone to keep themselves informed of the information that various levels of government and the medical community are issuing. Our primary concern is for our ringette family, their extended families and the impact we may have on local communities.

Ringette Ontario is committed to getting our athletes back on the ice at earliest convenience. We understand that there are many unknowns around a Return to Play date or details, so we have formed a number of ad-hoc working groups which are focusing on specific sections of an action plan, such as season coordination within our competition structure, health and safety guidelines and possible rule modifications. We will be bringing all information together into one document for our membership. This will then act as our guideline as we move forward this season, acknowledging that we will have to also incorporate any further guidelines from the Ministry of Health and municipal venues.

The Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture has created a sport industry advisory panel to advise on return to play protocols for sport in Ontario. Our Executive Director, Pam Julian, has been named to the Safety in Sport sub-committee of this group and will be ensuring that the interests of ringette are being included in these discussions.

We will be including a new section dedicated to this topic in our RO Rundown, where we will be updating you on any information or resources we may have, so please register to receive this newsletter if you have not already done so (And encourage your members and ringette friends to as well!).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Pam or Karla.

We thank everyone for their continued support and patience as we work through the coming months.

Regards,

Pam Julian Karla Xavier
Executive Director Technical Director
