Children’s Ringette Toolkit
At Ringette BC, we want to ensure that we are providing our Children’s Ringette coaches with all of the tools and resources they need to feel confident in their abilities to support their ringette participants in their development.
The Children’s Ringette Toolkit has been developed with FUN1, FUN2 and U10 Coaches in mind. The purpose of this toolkit is to support coaches in the Children’s Ringette Program in planning their season, designing practice plans, and understanding their role as a coach in this instrumental age division.
