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.
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.
This competitive club team usually has two practices per week, and plays roughly one league game per week. Games and practices take place outside the hours of the normal class schedule. Players should expect to participate in the national university ringette championships (between Christmas and New Year), as well as other tournaments and the ORA provincials.
Through the support of the university, and fundraising by the team, the cost of participating in the program is kept affordable.
Tryouts will be held between September 16 and September 24, 2017.
