What is Mixed Ability Ringette?

What is Mixed Ability Sport?


Mixed Ability Sport is a global movement that challenges participation assumptions and traditional thinking to redefine the way we think of, join in and enjoy sport.

Mixed Ability is a social movement within sports, actively promoting inclusion and equality through a  sense of belonging and membership to a group, team or club.

Mixed Ability enables people of all abilities and life experiences to take part in community sports, without being separated, classified or labelled.


This new video, featuring members of the City of Ottawa Ringette Association’s Ringette For All Team, introduces a Mixed Ability Ringette team. Feeling inspired to start your own? Find more information here or contact us at ringette@ringette.ca to get started! 



How to get started:

  1.  Take the Mixed Ability Sport Coach Certification.
  2.  Start a team or apply the Mixed Ability model to your existing program.
  3. Start a new program like Ringette For All.


This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
