The Ringette NS Excellence Program is intended for athletes who are looking to advance along their ringette pathway to high-performance events and programs such as the Canada Winter Games, National Ringette League, and the Ringette Canada National Program. The Excellence Program provides these athletes with supplemental training and competition to support their long-term high-performance goals.
The Excellence Program is open to athletes at U14, U16, U19 and 18+. The Program follows the stages of the Canadian Sport for Life's Long Term Athlete Development Framework, so programming will vary depending on the particular LTAD stage, as follows:
The 18+ program is designed for athletes in the Learning to Win/Competing to Win stages of LTAD. This program will begin later in the season than the U14, U16 and U19 programs. The competition opportunities may include inter-provincial play, the Atlantic Ringette Championships (PEI January 27-29, 2023), and the Eastern Canadian Ringette Championships (NB April 20-23, 2023).
