The 2024 Canadian Ringette Championships declared a True Sport event

Dieppe, NB–In every province and territory across the country, communities come together through sport. Regardless of their differences or similarities, the friendship, confidence, and love of sport unite us all. In recognition that good sport makes a great difference, Ringette Canada has declared the 2024 Canadian Ringette Championship (CRC) in Dieppe a True Sport event. 


This year’s CRC will commence on April 7, bringing together 49 teams from across the country to compete for national titles in the U16 and U19 divisions, as well as the National Ringette League championship. 


Ringette Canada, as a proud True Sport member, is committed to inspiring athletes to practice values-based sport. The seven True Sport Principles we live by are: “Go For It,” “Play Fair,” “Respect Others,” “Keep It Fun,” “Stay Healthy,” “Include Everyone,” and “Give Back.” 


“Ringette Canada is thrilled to declare once again the Canadian Ringette Championship a True Sport event,” said Erin Van Gulik, Ringette Canada Safe Sport & Sport Development Manager. 


“Ringette Canada and the CRC 2024 Host Committee are proud champions of the True Sport movement and look forward to seeing the importance of values-based sport highlighted throughout the week.”


There are many ways True Sport will be visible throughout the CRC. On-site, the True Sport booth will encourage participants to share True Sport Moments they have witnessed at the event, thus creating a visual representation of the power of good sport. For the ringette community watching from afar, we encourage the use of the hashtag #TrueSportMoments to celebrate the values of fairness, excellence, inclusion, and fun. True Sport Principles banners will be displayed throughout the venues, and oaths will be included during the opening ceremony. 


“We are pleased to see Ringette Canada display their commitment to True Sport. This intentional effort to embrace values-based sport through the True Sport Principles will help build a positive culture at the Canadian Ringette Championships and create experiences and memories to last a lifetime. Instilling character in participants through positive sport experiences is a great way to ensure a fair, inclusive and fun environment in which to pursue personal and sporting excellence,” said Karri Dawson, Executive Director, Values-Based Sport at the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport.


Good sport does not happen by chance. Sport falls short of its potential when negative behaviour gets in the way of the positive things sport can teach us about working together, respecting each other’s efforts, and handling both victory and defeat with the grace of a champion.
