Variance Policy

To assist Ringette Alberta with remaining nimble and being able to respond to changing situations due to COVID-19, a Variance Policy was approved by the Ringette Alberta Board of Directors on September 9.  

A draft of this policy was circulated to all local ringette association Directors (for whom we had contact information) in August for their feedback.  With that communication, a similar policy that can be customized for local association use was provided. If your association requires this template, please contact

This policy helps Ringette Alberta avoid having to consider every possible scenario where existing policy may become a roadblock to effective operation of our sport this season and also helps to avoid re-writing all those policies only to have to change them back again once we are through the pandemic and normalcy returns. 

The Variance Policy, and all other Ringette Alberta policies, can be viewed on the Bylaws and Policies Page.
