The City of Ottawa Ringette Association (CORA) is hosting the Canadian Ringette Championships April 5 - 11, 2020. They are anticipating close to 1000 athletes and bench staff, together with family and friends to attend this event.
They will be running six pads of ice, approximately 14 hours per day for 5 days before the gold medal games on April 11. Round Robin games will be played at Peplinksi, Richcraft Sensplex and Bob McQuarrie. The gold medal games on April 11 will be held at the Arena at TD Place, at Landsdowne Park.
With a minimum of 4 people in the box for each game, it adds up to a lot of required volunteer hours. If you would like to help out our local ringette association, please cut and paste the following link through InitLive to sign up for volunteering: (ages 14+ - volunteer hour sheets for high school students will be signed.)

The OGHA will be running a Spring Development Program. Comprised of eight weekly 2-hour development sessions and led by our Technical Director Vince Ippolito on Sunday afternoons from 4-6pm at Jim Durrell and Sandy Hill Arenas from April 19 - June 14 (no session on Sunday May 17). For sign-up info, go to the Spring Development page, under Programs on this website.
The OGHA is offering free Skills Development to all players within the association with the opportunity to reinforce their puck and skating skills in a fast-paced practice environment.
These sessions will be held every Wednesday (1715 - 1815) at Richcraft Sensplex and are designed to keep players from all levels active while development their skating, passing, and shooting skills.
Efficiently run drills will allow players to build confidence in their skills, and see how much more fun you can have in both practice and games!
If you are interested in attending these sessions, you must email Vince in advance and confirm your spot to ensure we do not have too may players attending.
We would like to keep the numbers between 20 – 25 skaters.
