Why should I register to play in the Capital Ringette Classic?
If your team will be formed in late April due to spring tryouts, the Capital Ringette Classic is a perfect team bonding event for your newly created team. We have all seen that bonding early is an essential ingredient to a successful team.
If your team’s season ends in April, the Capital Ringette Classic is your team’s last hurrah. A great long term memory.
You should register now for the Capital Ringette Classic to hold your spot for your team.
Can I register a team now without a full roster?
Absolutely, we have several teams that have done so in order to hold their spot while they put together a team or in anticipation of a newly formed spring tryout team. A 50% financial deposit is required by April 15th, 2018 with the balance due May 15th, 2018. Your team roster is not required until May 15, 2018, which leaves lots of time to complete your roster.
Space is filling rapidly, you will want to register now to avoid disappointment.
Can I mix players from different teams in our Association?
For sure. If you need our Tournament Coordinators will assist you in selecting the correct level of play for your formed team. It is important to the Capital Ringette Classic that teams are placed in the correct division, this ensures that all teams are satisfied with the level of play during competitions.
How does Team/Player insurance work?
The Capital Ringette Classic has arranged for teams to gain insurance coverage at a very reasonable price, usually $12-14 per player. Here is the link to our insurance partner.
The Capital Ringette Classic will be requesting proof of insurance prior to the tournament start date. This will come in the form off a Certificate of Insurance from iplayhockey.ca or another insurance carrier.
Why do we require insurance?
The Capital Ringette Classic holds event liability insurance. Each team requires their own liability insurance to ensure they are covered in the case of an unfortunate mishap while at the tournament. The insurance protects the coaching staff, trainers and players in the case of an incident. All non ORA events require private insurance.
What is White Glove service?
The Capital Ringette Classic wants to distinguish itself by providing an enhanced level of service to our tournament patrons, teams that are either from out of town or live here in the capital.
Our White Glove service provides direct links to quickly book your team’s hotel at our partner hotels. We will also work with your team to arrange restaurant venues and activities around your team’s schedule. The Capital Ringette Classic will complete your restaurant bookings and other reservations to ensure everything is organized prior to your arrival.
This White Glove service is complimentary to all teams registered with the Capital Ringette Classic.
Why is the tournament fee $1095.00 + HST?
As ringette parents we have never been impressed with tournaments that charge us money to watch our children. A spectator door entry fee, $15 to $20 per person is usually standard for spring tournaments. We did the math; a door entry fee will cost you more. On a 15 player team with additional family members and friends, the entry fees can really add up, too much money for some families. We DO NOT charge a door entry fee.
The Capital Ringette Classic will keep your family together for the weekend, we offer free entrance to all the tournament games for any and all family members and friends. As well, we have a four (4) game guarantee for all teams. Depending on results, a team could play up to seven (7) games at the Capital Ringette Classic.
While we were able to hold registration fees at the same level for the first 2 years, due to rising ice costs, we were forced to raise the price slightly, this new price only adds $7.50 per player on a team of 15 players.
We have many value added features that many tournaments do not and are always looking for ways to improve the experience.
Is there any restrictions to bench staff, for example one female must on the bench?
There are no restrictions for a team’s bench staff at the Capital Ringette Classic. We ask that you honour regular protocol and have a female trainer and a female parent in the dressing room at all times, to help guarantee the safety and happiness of the player community.
Is the Capital Ringette Classic affiliated with any local association or governing body?
No. The tournament is a privately operated event created to provide a unique spring ringette experience for players, coaches and parents from across the world.
All teams are welcome and allowed to attend this tournament as it is a out of season spring tournament.
Can individual players join another team?
Yes. The Capital Ringette Classic will help match players with teams as requested. Last year, we had several players that wanted to play but didn’t have a team and we had a few teams that needed players. We coordinated the contacts and everyone had a blast with their new friends.
