Ringette Manitoba is responsible for introducing and managing the sport of Ringette in the province, and showing Manitoba athletes that the game is both outrageously fast and incredibly friendly! Ringette is a truly Canadian game that was developed in this country 50 years ago to address issues that girls were facing in more traditional sports at the time. Today, the sport is thriving in the country, providing Canadian youth with female role models and creating a unique and close knit community – both inside and outside the rink.
