At the heart of ringette is the ability of a player to skate. However, skating is an art that requires proper teaching and years of practice. The advantages of learning the proper techniques provide the player with efficiency, mobility, agility, explosiveness, power, stability, and speed. Rink athletes of all ages are continually updating and adapting their skating skills to ensure these benefits are continually gained through their professional lives. A better skater gains a better experience in the game because they gain the confidence and skills to participate and compete.
The objectives of this program are to:
Provide continued skating skill development for all players who are interested.
Encourage players on competitive teams to develop efficient skating techniques, increase speed, agility, and technical aspects of skating which will accelerate development.
Partner with Goulbourn Skating Club (Skate Canada) on creating a fun-focused young/beginner level skating development program (Bunnies).
Partner with Skate Canada on Ringette skating skill development.
Partner with Peak Centre on skating explosiveness, speed and strength.
Maintain a cost competitive program (programs offered on a cost recovery basis).
