Play hard and stay safe with proper equipment
At Ringette Canada safety is our priority. Players need to have the right ringette equipment so that they're well-protected as they play. The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) outlines certified ringette equipment. Click here to search a list of approved equipment.
Choose an approved helmet and mask
Using a proper ringette helmet and mask is a key way to protect yourself while playing. That's why players must wear helmets and face protectors that adhere to the CSA standards.
Goalies wear their own specialized type of helmet and face protector. At the moment, the only goalie helmet and mask combination that is approved of by the CSA is the OTNY brand OR2000 with Type C face protector model OR01 (in size JR/SR).
Select the right stick
Ringette sticks are an integral part of the game. Playing with a stick that is not the right height or quality can slow players down and lead to injuries.
Although Ringette Canada doesn't approve stick models, we ask players to make sure that their stick conforms to the specifications outlined in the Ringette Canada Rulebook.
Ringette sticks can be made of wood, plastic, aluminum or any similar material. Skaters cannot use a goalkeeper's stick.
You can find more information on stick specifications in section five of the Ringette Canada Rule Book.
