U19 Excellence Program

The Ringette NS Excellence Program is intended for athletes who are looking to advance along their ringette pathway to high-performance events and programs such as the Canada Winter Games, National Ringette League, and the Ringette Canada National Program. The Excellence Program provides these athletes with supplemental training and competition to support their long-term high-performance goals. 

The Excellence Program is open to athletes at U14, U16, U19 and 18+. The Program follows the stages of the Canadian Sport for Life's Long Term Athlete Development Framework, so programming will vary depending on the particular LTAD stage, as follows:

  • Training to Train (females 12-13 years of age (early stage); females 14-15 years of age (later stage);
  • Training to Compete (females 16-18 years of age);
  • Learning to Win (females 18-19+); and
  • Competing to Win (females 18+)

The U19 program is designed to reflect that athletes are in the Training to Compete/Learning to Win stage of LTAD. The competition opportunities include inter-provincial play, the Atlantic Ringette Championships (NS February 16-18, 2024), the Canadian Ringette Championships (NB April 7-13, 2024) and the Eastern Canadian Ringette Championships (PE April 2024 TBD).

The number of athletes screened into the Excellence Ringette Program for the 2023/2024 season is not predetermined. The size of the 2023/2024 Excellence Ringette Program cohort will be dependent on the number of athletes that complete the assessments, and overall performance of the applicants in each age division.

Athletes in this stage are eligible for selection to the Junior National Team.
