Ringette Hall of Fame

Herman Wills


Herm Wills is a name synonymous with ringette in Nova Scotia. He introduced and organized the first ringette game in the province in 1973 and founded and became president of Ringette Nova Scotia in 1974. Some media outlets have dubbed him the ‘Father of ringette in Nova Scotia.’ Herm was also one of the founding members of Ringette Canada, along with members from Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.

His early leadership in the sport, both within and outside of Nova Scotia, significantly contributed to the national growth that was seen in the years following and which led to the eventual inclusion of ringette in the Canada Winter Games. In 2007, Herm was inducted into the Sackville Sports Heritage Hall of Fame for his introduction of ringette into the community and dedicated leadership and promotion of the sport.
