SRRA Provincial (12P/A/AA) Team Declaration and Tryout Process 2020-2021

March 2020

The following document sets out important timelines that must be met in proceeding through the player declaration, team tryout and team selection process. This process should facilitate informed communication between Southern Region and its member Associations. It should help to identify potential conflicts so that they can be dealt with in a timely and mutually respectful manner, allowing the process to move along to completion.

If there is one thing parents want, it is to see their child enjoying themselves and getting better at playing the great sport of Ringette. This is what makes Provincial Ringette a worthwhile investment. Let us be reminded of this value, remembering it is the players who make this great sport what it is. This document is designed to assist parents and players better understand the tryout process.

Intent-to-Tryout Forms
