ANY ATHLETES WISHING TO PLAY IN THE AA PROGRAM MUST REGISTER AND ATTEND TRYOUTS.
NOTE: If a player is unable to attend tryouts, they will be excused for the following reasons only:
- family death or health emergency,
- sickness or injury, accompanied by a doctor’s note, or
- Covid-19 isolation as mandated by provincial health regulations in effect at the time.
All notifications of absenteeism must be submitted in writing to the tryout coordinator, Cari Hunter (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as you are aware of the absence. The AA committee will determine a fair evaluation for these players. These situations will be reviewed on a case by case basis. The team formation committee reserves the right to consider the athlete’s previous ringette experience. However, if a player does not attend tryouts for the reasons previously noted their score could prevent placement on an AA team.
U14AA – (Born 08/09) – The final determination of the number of U14AA teams will not be made until tryout registration numbers are submitted and skills can be evaluated. Please note that 2022 is a Manitoba Winter Games year. Ringette is represented at the U14 level. Athletes playing U14AA are not eligible to tryout for a Manitoba Winters Game teams.
U16AA – (Born 06/07) –The final determination of the number of U16AA teams will not be made until tryout registration numbers are submitted and skills can be evaluated.
U19AA – (Born 03/04/05) –The final determination of the number of U19AA teams will not be made until tryout registration numbers are submitted and skills can be evaluated.
The 2021 AA tryouts will be coordinated by Ringette Manitoba’s AA Committee. The intent is for tryouts to be hosted in a centralized manner, however if Provincial Health regulations will not allow for that, the plan is the individual AA Organizations will host their own tryouts over the same time period at Richmond arena. The specific format of the tryouts will be dependant on health regulations at that time.
After tryouts are complete and teams formed, all athletes who were not selected will be required to return to their home Local Association. If a player is selected to play on a team outside of their catchment area and the player declines to play, they will not be selected to another AA team and will return to their home Local Association. Registrants will need to indicate whether they would be willing to play for an AA team outside of their catchment area to avoid situations where athletes decline to play after being selected for a team from a different AA Organization.
Should an athlete remove themselves from contention prior to the commencement of the tryout process the athlete will receive a refund less a 5% administration fee. Once tryouts begin no refund will be issued if the athlete decides not to continue.
In the event Public Health Orders leads to a full cancellation of the tryouts, athletes will receive a refund less a 5% administration fees.
