Ringette is played on a regular ice surface, with a ring instead of a puck and with some additional lines and markings on the ice.

Ringette equipment is similar to hockey except for a couple of pieces. Ringette stick has a ribbed tip to help shoot the ring. Ringette mask has a tighter gauge to prevent the smaller tip from penetrating.

I went to Come Try Ringette in 2010. I enjoyed ringette because I got to meet new people. Some people were from my school so I made friends from ringette to have at school. Its also good to try something new. You never know who you will meet and how much fun it could be. Ringette people learn good sportsmanship and they say good game when its over.
