Frequently Asked Questions:
I have a credit left with the association from last year. How will that be applied?
All credits have been applied in the RAMP system and will be visible when you check out which you can apply to your deposit. Please note that the remainder of the fees due in September will be $350 for early bird (registered and paid for by July 25th) and $375 for regular registration for Fun 2 and up. Fun 1 players will owe $150 in September.
Why have the fees been increased compared to the last regular season?
MDRA has not raised registration fees for a number of years, yet ice costs have increased dramatically. In the last regular season (2019-2020), the association operated at a deficit. To keep the association financially stable, a fee increase was needed.
Why has the refund policy changed?
When the refund policy was last updated, the association was able to return ice to the city with 10 business days notice. Since that time, the city’s refund policy has changed and the association must commit to the ice contracts as of August 1st. Given that the association must make a commitment and pay for those ice contracts, it is necessary to have a commitment from players in order to keep the association financially stable.
Why is MDRA only releasing “estimated” fees at this time?
The executive wanted to give players/guardians an idea of what registration fees might look like and wanted to release those to the membership. Given the uncertainty of COVID and what restrictions the association may be operating under, the executive reserves the right to adjust fees in September to reflect the true cost of operating this season. The estimated fees are based on a regular season and the times allotted to each team. Should there be restrictions to the number of players allowed on the ice at one time, the fees may be increased or players may see a decrease in ice times.
Will there be any refunds issued this year?
As per the refund policy, no refunds will be issued this year. The executive reserves the right to deal with refund requests on a case by case basis for players who withdraw for medical reasons or for extenuating circumstances. Should the city cancel our ice contract, refunded monies will be divided amongst registered players.
What will this season look like?
It is our hope to operate as normal of a year as possible. Based on the directives by Ringette Ontario, a period of conditioning will be provided to all registered players prior to tryouts, sort outs and team formation. Our expectation is that this conditioning period will be 2-3 weeks in length with 2 ice times per week. After which we will begin tryouts and sort outs. The timelines for tryouts will be set by Eastern Region and communicated as soon as we know more.
Please see the Season Plan that was sent to associations from Ringette Ontario.

What is the difference between Fun 1 and Fun 2?
Fun 1 (formally bunnies) will be offered once a week and focus primarily on skating and skill development. This program generally starts in October.
Fun 2 (formally U8) will be offered as a team and participate in approximately one practice and one game per week. This program generally starts in September with the rest of the teams in the association.
For more information on the Children’s Ringette program, please refer to Ringette Ontario’s Children’s Ringette resources page.
I live within MDRA boundaries, but played as an out-of-association player last season. Where should I register?
Any player who has played for the same association for 2 consecutive years is considered fully released and that association is now considered their home association. For reference, you can have a look at the Eastern Region policy on player movement.
However, last season (2020-2021) does not count towards those 2 seasons.
If you are still unsure where to register, please contact the registrar to clarify.
