Shoulder Pad Requirement

Apr. 28, 2024

Over the last two seasons, AA Ringette Calgary and other Zone 3 and Zone 2 ringette associations have partnered with the University of Calgary Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre to collect data about the frequency and type of injuries incurred during ringette activities. Promoting athlete safety and injury prevention is a priority, permitting maximum participation throughout the season but also with benefits for their long term health.

On January 24 2024, the AA Ringette Calgary Committee passed a motion to mandate that all U14-U19 athletes wear shoulder pads/protectors, effective August 2024. Details are available under the 'AA Committee Meeting Minutes'.

Please review the infographic to learn more about the benefits of shoulder pad use for injury prevention. Questions can be referred to the association Safety Lead:
