Frequently Asked Questions and Resources
  • Distribute promotional materials at local community centres and schools to get the word out about your event
  • Contact registrants leading up to the event to answer any questions and confirm their attendance
  • Host a parent information session at the event and have association board members or coaches available to walk around and answer questions.
  • Use the registration sheet to track attendance. The sheet will be emailed to you when your event is approved.
  • Follow-up with registrants after the event; provide ‘next steps’ with registration dates/forms, local camp information, or other CTR event dates.
The Recruitment Team is made up of experienced female ringette players who are trained to lead the on-ice portion of Come Try Ringette events. We currently have team members based in the Edmonton area, Red Deer, and Calgary. You may request the recruitment team attend your ice session, however, they will only be made available to events which have 10 or more registrants 3 weeks before the event date. The team will bring a CTR Display, branded table cloth for the check-in table, and fun!

Use the registration spreadsheet to track attendance. The sheet will be emailed to you when your event is approved. Please note the registration format shown in the sample must be used when you submit your final numbers.

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.

After your event, you will be asked to submit a score card. Click here to view the scorecard outline so you know what is being asked.

The scorecard highlights the best practices and let’s us see if we are running high quality events. Combined with your conversion rate, we can see where we may need to provide more information or resources to help you achieve your recruitment targets.

Timelines – when should you start planning your event? What do you need to do to prepare?

Sample Registration Spreadsheet – all of the info on this sheet must be collected and emailed to the Sport Development Coordinator as part of your event follow-up.
