Everyone who goes on the ice during the event needs to be on the registration spreadsheet. Those who are already registered ringette players should be marked as such and new players should be indicated. You will be asked to email your registration spreadsheet the week after your event. This information is used to determine how many people attended each event and later registered for the ringette season.
Volunteers should be listed as “on-ice” or “off-ice” volunteer and no contact information is required.
