Why Gym Ringette?
Gym Ringette is a True Sport program and is a way to maximize the positive influence sport can have on students.
Ringette is an exciting team sport that emphasizes fun while allowing for the maximum participation of all players, regardless of gender, ability and physical challenge.
The game promotes social and emotional maturity by encouraging team work through competition and cooperation. The many skills which result from ringette participation are directly related to the goals of a physically active lifestyle and help to build confidence and competence in all participants.
Gym Ringette requires fitness, strategy, strength and finesse. Players must rely on agility, speed and endurance which in turn build physical literacy.

Ringette BC in partnership with Ringette Canada and Physical and Health Education Canada promotes the use of the Move Think Learn – Ringette in Focus resource.
This easy to implement resource introduces teachers and students to ringette through a unique approach that facilitates purposeful game play experiences. The Move Think Learn series explores movements and tactical/critical thinking associated with each sport and brings these skills together through a culminating activity where students apply learning.
While the resource focuses on ringette, it emphasizes the transferability of tactical solutions from one sport context to another. Each Move Think Learn resource provides for 6-8 activities each and is targeted to educators working with the children and youth in grades 4 through 9. The goal of the series is to increase student knowledge, confidence, and competence to become further engaged in physical activity and/or sport.
