Registration – Registration for the 2017-2018 season is underway. First Time Players are charged a flat rate of $100 in order to allow the participant a chance to see if they like it as much as we hope they do!
In 2016/2017 Hanover Heat iced two teams – a U10 and a U14 team. Each team had a twenty game schedule – 10 home games and 10 away games and a practice each Thursday night. Practices times alternated between the two teams on a monthly basis – one month at 5pm and the next month at 6:10pm. The home games were played on Sunday afternoons at the P&H Centre. The away games were also on weekends so no need to worry about travelling late on a school night. The U10 team travelled to Goderich, Waterloo, Kitchener and St. Mary’s for their away games. Two double headers were arranged to reduce the travel for parents and fans alike! The U14 team had a tournament in Mitchell early in the season where they won Silver Medals. Both teams attended the Newmarket Ignite the Ice Tournament on Family Day Weekend and brought home gold and silver medals for their efforts. Each team will be travelling to London to compete in the year end Regional Tournament at the end of March.
What to Wear – Ringette players wear a helmet with a ringette face mask, neck guard, elbow pads and shoulder pads, a jill with hockey pants and socks or a girdle and ringette pants, shin guards, skates, gloves and of course a straight stick to stab the ring!
Fundraising – In order to keep our costs down Hanover Minor Ringette has a bottle drive each fall – team members sport their jerseys and knock on doors asking to collect – this is a fun night for the players and gets everybody in the spirit to kick off another season. A second fundraiser is held prior to Christmas and in the past has been selling Elmira Chicken or Little Caesar’s Pizza. Each family is asked to sell 12 units or contribute $60 if you choose to opt out. The fundraising ends with the sale of chocolate bars. Each family is asked to pay $120 for two cases of chocolate bars and then sell the goodies and keep the proceeds or contribute $60 and opt out.
Summer Camp – Hanover HEAT is also proud to offer a Ringette Camp in August at the Ayton Arena. This camp provides an excellent opportunity to try it out. There is one hour of power skating and one hour of ringette skills each day – 10 hours of ice time in one week! The rest of the day is filled with fun activities and entertainment. All skaters are welcome to come and test out the sport. Skaters will be grouped according to age and ability so no need to worry about fitting in!
