Ringette Hall of Fame

Peter Maik


Peter Maik’s contributions to the sport of ringette on a national basis are very extensive as a coach, referee, officiating committee member, national championship supervisor and evaluator. Peter was also very active provincially and locally as a referee-in-chief, coach, instructor, regional supervisor of officials, fundraiser and local association builder/director. As a coach, Peter’s style, strategies and tactics were studied by all and emulated by many as he pioneered several unique offensive and defensive systems. As a devoted student of sport and accomplished junior and varsity athlete himself, Peter always focused on the value of sport and its contribution to the important character development of young people. With over 15 years of community coaching, Peter’s coaching style always included reference to life lessons that ringette could offer the athletes.

When asked what the induction meant to him, Peter commented, “I could rhyme off a number of clichés and talk about how proud and honoured I am to be inducted into the Hall of Fame – which I am, but really this induction has given me the opportunity to reflect and think about the many people who have provided me with the opportunities in my life and quite frankly it makes me well up with tears because I have so many great memories. It truly is an honour.”

Territory acknowledgement

While we are a proud Canadian organization, we acknowledge that our head office is located on traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg People, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Ringette Canada extends our respect to all First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples for their valuable contributions to this land. We are committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
