Canadian Ringette Championships


The Canadian Ringette Championships (CRC) were first held in 1979 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Along with the Canada Winter Games, the CRC event is the very best that the sport has to offer nationally and it serves as a dynamic forum of competition for athletes, coaches and officials from across the country. The tournament is designed to determine the Canadian champions in the U16, U19 and National Ringette League categories.

As well as determining champions, the tournament provides the athletes with the opportunity to compete at the elite level, encourages sportsmanship and interprovincial goodwill, and increases the visibility of the sport across the country.

Ringette Canada’s annual national championships typically take place in late March or early April.


Date: April 5th - 11th, 2020

World Ringette Championships


On a regular basis, Ringette Canada selects and prepares national teams to participate in the World Ringette Championship. While a World Ringette Championship was not held in 1998, teams from Canada and Finland toured Europe in a promotional Summit Series. In Colmar, France, Team Finland beat Canada 10-8 in the 5th and deciding game to win the Summit Series 3-2.

This series between the two best teams in the world displayed ringette at its best and sparked great interest at stops in Germany, France, Sweden and France. In 2013, the format of the event changed to include competition in the U19 and senior age divisions.
