You MUST complete your registration in RAMP.
Here is the link that will take you to the Site: HMR Ramp Registration Page
If you are new to the site, you will first need to set yourself up as a user before filling out all of the registration information. If you are a returning player, log in the same as previous years. If you forget how to, it’s best to reset your password if necessary, before creating a new account.
New this year…the Ringette Ontario fees will be collected at time of registration, via credit card. You will not be able to complete your registration until the fee transaction has been completed. The total fees collected will be $56.50. In the past, this has been part of your registration fee to HMR, and then we are billed for all player fees as a team. Due to the fact that you will already be paying these fees up front, your Registration due to Hanover Minor Ringette will now be $350, rather than $400. Your remaining $350 registration, payable to HMR, can be paid via etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org or by cash or cheque. Payment would be appreciated at time of registration but can be paid up to 2 weeks after we hit the ice.
We are asking you to register as soon as possible, so we can start to get an idea of what our team configurations will look like. If we are unable to ice a team that is the appropriate division for your child, and your registration is withdrawn, Ringette Ontario will reimburse you the $56.50 already paid in fees. Having said that, we know the older girls will have to move up to the U19 division this year, as we would have too many over-agers for a U16 team again. We would love to have two younger teams and a Learn to Skate program as well. As always, this will depend on how many kids register and their ages.
Something else that is new…Ringette Ontario has announced that one parent of every ringette player under the age of 18 is required to take the Respect in Sport Parent Program before participating in ringette programming, starting in the 2022-23 season. This course is mandatory to have the Player’s registration approved. The Respect in Sport Parent Program is a one-hour online module for parents/guardians, reinforcing their role in their child’s activities, encouraging positive sports behaviours, and providing insight into the various roles other individuals play, such as coaches and officials. The online course costs $12 and is transferable to other sports involved in Respect in Sport.
If you have any questions about the respect in sport program, please contact Tyler Harding at email@example.com.
Our first practice will be on September 15th! Ice time will likely run from 5-7pm, so we will figure out how to best split that up once we get the teams figured out.
If you have any questions about registration, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
New to Ringette? A typical season looks like this!
In 2018/2019 (our last regular season before covid) Hanover Heat iced two teams - a U14 and a U16 team. This year we are looking at icing a U19 a U12 and a Fun3 (8 and under). 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 5:55pm. 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. Both teams attended a tournament in Mitchell early in the season and both teams attended the Newmarket Ignite the Ice Tournament on Family Day Weekend. Each team traveled to Tillsonburg to compete in the year end Regional Tournament at the end of March, the U16 brought home GOLD medals and the U14 snagged the SILVER. GO HEAT!!
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.
