The University of Ottawa ringette program is in its 14th season and has provided many student athletes with the opportunity to continue playing the sport they love while pursuing a post-secondary education. The team competes throughout the year in the A division of the local adult ringette league and participates in tournaments throughout Ontario along with participating in the University Challenge Cup.
The new headcoach for the 2017-2018 season will be Chuck Dentelbeck (firstname.lastname@example.org, 613-601-2480).

The University of Ottawa Gee-Gees ringette team has competed in the ORA provincial Championships in each of the last six years and has returned with a medal every year.
Players participating in the Gee-Gees ringette program can expect to find an immediate community of friends who share a passion for the sport and the thrill of competition. Athletes on the team find a much-needed balance to their academic routine through high quality ringette competition and a regular exercise program. The team currently carries 13 skaters, two goalies, and two spares.
This competitive club team usually has two practices per week, and plays roughly one league game per week. Players should expect to participate in the national university ringette championships, as well as other tournaments (to be decided upon within the team). Through the support of the university, and fundraising by the team, the cost of participating in the program is kept affordable. Games and practices take place outside the hours of the normal class schedule.
Tryouts generally begin during the second week of classes each year. Tryout and other information is available through the coach.
