Equipment Requirements

  • Skaters MUST wear hockey skates (no plastic/moulded or figure skates permitted)
  • Skaters MUST wear a CSA approved helmet and ringette face mask/cage (which have smaller openings than a hockey mask)
  • A jersey will be provided to each participant

Additional Equipment Recommendations

Players in the Learn to Skate (LTS) program are not required to wear full ringette equipment. However, children fall while learning to skate, and full equipment is recommended for the best protection and comfort.  If not wearing full equipment, minimum additional/recommended equipment for the LTS program is as follows:

·         padded gloves

·         knee and elbow pads  

MRA strongly recommends that full equipment be worn by all participants as it is safer, allows the participants to become accustomed to wearing it, as well as gives them the freedom to fall while learning without fear of hurting themselves.  MRA offers an economical equipment rental program where participants can rent a full set of equipment (minus skates and helmet) for a season.


Full equipment is available from our EQUIPMENT RENTAL PROGRAM  for a modest fee, and includes the following:

  • BNQ approved neck protector, elbow pads, shin pads, shoulder pads, hockey gloves, Ringette pants or hockey pants and socks 

For more details and information about ringette equipment refer to the following: Ringette Equipment Info ...


Please note that no skating aids of any kind are permitted on the ice during any MRA programs.  Skating aids actually prolong the learning process, and can result in improper technique.  Parents of players using skating aids will be asked to remove the aids or the skater will be removed from the ice.
