Ringette was first introduced into the Canada Winter Games in 1991. Held every four years, the Canada Winter Games are a key event in the development of Canada’s young athletes. As the best in their age group, these young competitors come to the Games having trained long and hard to be among those chosen to represent their respective province or territory and compete for the Canada Games Flag and Centennial Cup. With the Canada Games poised as a key step in the development of Canada’s future stars, Canada Games athletes are Canada’s next generation Junior and Senior National team athletes.
In Ringette, the Canada Games is an opportunity for Learn to Win stage athletes to compete as part of their provincial team. The level of play is AAA and a stepping-stone towards international level competition.
The next Canada Winter Games will take place in Prince Edward Island in 2023.
