KRA FUN2 (U8) (FUN2)
Season runs October through March
The Children’s Ringette initiative represents a concerted effort to adjust ringette practices and competitions to meet the needs of children while promoting a fun, safe and healthy environment which supports the development of physical literacy and the long-term development of all players.
Children’s Ringette is a program that provides age and stage appropriate physical activity experiences for ringette players under the age of 10.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CHILDREN’S RINGETTE PROGRAM:
Ringette experience that is tailored to the age, size, and skill level of participants
Participants are grouped by developmental stages rather than chronological ages and are able to move up when they are ready
Emphasis on fun and fundamental skill development
Increased opportunities for participation and engagement
Adapted gameplay including small-area games and small nets
FUN2 (U8) is for children who are learning to lengthen their stride, ready to learn more rules of ringette, and have developed some basic skills, this group plays Mini Ringette.
Both FUNdamentals 1 & 2 divisions use small-sized nets and play adapted games of 3 on 3 and 4 on 4 respectively. Smaller spaces ensure more touches, interactions, shots on net, and passes. Teams are split into smaller squads to ensure the majority of players are participating at a time. With these adaptations in the FUNdamentals divisions, children are able to experience maximum participation, practice learned skills, and move through divisions based on skill and readiness.
Reimbursement will be given should the season be affected by COVID-19 restrictions causing multiple practice/game play/tournament cancellations.
