Officials Ressources

Official education is never-ending, each official starts with an e-module and clinic before they hit the ice to translate what they learned in the clinics into real-life practice, then they continue their development with evaluations, clinics, exams, refreshers, and programs. On this page, Ringette Alberta will be posting information that supplements their learning, as well as documents that have been created to inform others of official’s development.



If you have any questions on these resources, please contact the Officials Development Coordinator.

For the 2019-2021 Rule Book (which is still current, until fall 2024), please visit Ringette Canada’s website. For another version that is searchable, please use this from the Ringette Calgary website.
