Ringette PEI, in partnership with the five local associations of Charlottetown, Montague, Rustico, Souris, and Summerside, is proud to host the 2019 Canadian Ringette Championships (CRC) from April 7–13, 2019.

First held in 1979 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the CRC, along with the Canada Winter Games, showcases the very best that the sport has to offer. The tournament provides athletes with the opportunity to compete at the elite level, encourages sportsmanship and interprovincial goodwill, and increases the visibility of ringette across the country.  The 2019 CRC will determine the Canadian champions in the U16, U19, and National Ringette League categories.

The Organizing Committee is excited to welcome athletes, coaches, team staff, officials, families, and fans to PEI this coming April. Please check our website www.crc2019.ca often as we will add further information and resources as they become available—we want to ensure your CRC experience is an amazing one!

The Host Organizing Committee thanks title sponsor Credit Unions of PEI, along with the Government of PEI and the cities of Charlottetown and Summerside, for their generous leadership support.

Technical Meeting

The technical meeting hosted by Ringette Canada will be held at 2:30 pm on Sunday, April 7 in the Veterans’ Convention Centre at Credit Union Place in Summerside. All teams must be represented at this meeting by a member of their team staff.

Webcasting

All games will be webcasted via SportsCanada.tv. The direct link to access the webcast is sportscanada.tv/ringette. This link will also be available on www.crc2019.ca.

Rosters

Our host committee has received copies of the original rosters that were submitted in December when your team was declared for the CRCs. We know that, in some cases, teams were carrying extra players or rosters have since changed. To allow us to better prepare for your team’s participation (opening ceremony seating/banquet seating/etc.), we request that each team please send us the total number of athletes that will be with you in PEI to 2019crc@gmail.com

Closing Banquet

The banquet takes place at 7:00 pm on Saturday April 13 at the Delta Prince Edward. The theme for the banquet is “Light up the Night” and the attire is semi-formal. We want to remind teams that only accredited participants (players and team staff) are able to attend the banquet. If teams do have additional team staff, above the five accredited ones, we may be able to accommodate them at a cost of $60/person once our final numbers are confirmed.

Please forward requests for additional tickets to 2019crc@gmail.com by Wednesday, April 3.

National Anthem

Please be advised that the National Anthem will be played at the first game of each day at each rink as well as before every NRL game. The Anthem will be played after the warm up is completed and we ask that the starting lineup for each team line up at their respective blue lines.

Invoices

Our committee will begin issuing invoices to teams after the April 3, 2019 advance-ticket-sale deadline.  The invoice will include pre-ordered tournament passes and any practice ice times that have been booked. Tournament passes are $100 each and ice is $200 per hour (both include taxes).

You have two options for payment. You can pay by cheque when you pick up your package, or you can send an E-transfer. If paying by E-transfer, please send it to 2019crcfinance@gmail.com and please include the team name in the comments box (eg. U16AA PEI Wave).  Please use the question – what sport do we play?  Answer – ringette

Safe Travels

We look forward to your arrival and the incredible ringette that will be played by your athletes.  Safe travels and we’ll see you in less than one week!
