Ringette "the fastest game on ice" is a team sport played on an ice surface primarily by girls or women. Ringette is played on ice and uses the speed of hockey and the strategies of basketball. The participant uses a straight stick to control a rubber ring; with the objective of the game being to score goals by shooting the ring into the opponent's net.
Ringette was invented by Sam Jacks and was first played in Ontario in 1963. Calgary has seen recent growth & expansion over the past several years.
