2020-2021 Registration Fees

We know that Covid-19 is impacting the economy and our community. Although team-size restrictions for the upcoming season have increased NWVRA's ice costs per player, we have deliberately kept our player fee structure the same as last year.

If payment for the season is challenging, please reach out to registrar@nwvra.com and we can discuss possible solutions, such as an installment-payment plan.

WHAT WILL RINGETTE LOOK LIKE THIS SEASON?

Ringette will be look different, but will still be fun!  Following Ringette BC’s Return to Ringette guidelines, teams will be capped at 10 players for U12 and below, or 12 players for U14 and above, to allow physical distancing on the ice and benches. No league games are planned, so on-ice time will focus on practices, moving into intra-squad scrimmages and potentially games later in the season depending on the Covid-19 situation and further guidance from Ringette BC and the arenas where we play.  The season’s focus will be on skills development and fun.

Each arena we play in (West Vancouver, Karen Magnussen, and Canlan Ice Sports) has slightly different—and still developing—rules and requirements for players, coaches and families, but all will require players to arrive and leave fully dressed, will limit parent and spectator access, and will provide larger gaps between ice times.

NWVRA will notify families of these details, and keep you aware of any changes in the situation as they occur.  This is an uncertain situation and we appreciate everyone’s support and patience as we work to provide an active and fun ringette season.
