COVID-19 and its impact to Whitby Ringette
Submitted By James Main on Friday, March 13, 2020
Dear Parents and Players,

The Town of Whitby announced today that all Town Facilities will be closed effective midnight tonight. This means we have no further ice in Whitby.

This is very likely to be duplicated in other arenas in the province, if not today, then over the next few days.

What does this mean to you?
  • There will be no practice or home games until further notice
  • All remaining regional level away games have been canceled
  • All remaining provincial away games very likely will be canceled.
  • All Tournaments such as the AA in Richmond Hill, the A Provincials in Ottawa and Sault St Marie and the Regionals in Ajax have been suspended until further notice.
  • AA and A level Tryouts may be affected
  • Whitby Ringette Banquet will likely not proceed
  • The spring Come Try Ringette will likely not proceed.
  • The Whitby Ringette Association AGM may need to be scheduled to a later date than normal, or be done via video conference.
We ask that you check back regularly to our Web Site (, social media channels and Ringette Ontario ( for the latest announcements.

Ian Clyde,
Whitby Ringette Association
