2024/2025 Registration

Welcome to the 2024/2025 season!

Registration is now open for Youth and Adult players. 

Ringette BC has made changes to the U14 – U19 Club divisions (Female Only and All Gender teams) and to U14 to U19 Zone teams (Female Only and Male Only). You can read about the changes in the 2024/2025 Ringette BC Competition Framework and Programming Update here. There is detailed information to help you make a decision about where to register your player.

Note that there are no changes to the Fun 1, Fun 2, U10, U12, and Open teams. The Masters team will support both a Development team and a League playing team.

For your first registration in RAMP, you will be required to provide both proof of age (birth certificate, Care Card, Passport) and proof of residence (drivers license, utility bill, or residency letter signed by the appropriate municipal authority). Please have this ready to upload via photo or pdf as you cannot complete the registration without them. 

Costs for the season include:  

  • Registration fee
  • Green and White Reversible Practice Jersey for U10 and up
  • VRA Hoodie for Fun 1 and 2 

Additional applicable fees: 

  • $100 jersey deposit for Fun 1 to U12 
  • $200 jersey deposit for U14 and higher 
  • $150 volunteer deposit 
  • tournaments 
  • year end coach gifts 

Jersey and Volunteer deposits are collected as 2 separate post dated cheques and refunded in March 2025 once jerseys are returned and volunteer hours are submitted.  

The ringette season runs from September through mid-March.  

  • Fun 1 will have weekly practices and play approximately 6 friendly games with neighbouring associations. 
  • Fun 2 and above divisions have one practice (see tentative schedule on main page), and one game time (typically on the weekend) per week. Fun 2 games start in the late fall. Informal tournament play may begin as early as  November.  
  • For Fun 10 and above, games alternate between Home game and Away game locations each week. Home games are held at a Richmond rink and Away games are held at another association’s rink in the lower mainland. Additional practices are scheduled throughout the season.  
  • There are also several tournament weekends throughout the season. See Lower Mainland Ringette League for more information. 
  • You need to register in the association where you are resident and addresses are confirmed by the registrar. All registrants must register in the division corresponding to their birth year and provide a birth certificate to confirm  their birthdate, which will be stored in RAMP. The league is strict on this rule.  

Registration Fees

This season, we will have youth teams at 7 levels and 2 levels of adult players  

  • All NEW registrants aged 9 or below, as of December 31st, should register first  in Fun 1. 
  • As necessary, new registrants will be moved to the appropriate level thereafter.
  • New registrants (first season with Vancouver Ringette) who play Fun 1 or Fun 2 will be charged $350 for their first season. 
  • If a new registrant is moved to U10, the U10 fees will apply and the difference will be billed at time of movement. 
  • Registrants must register in their birth year.

Youth Player Registration  

FUN 1 / FUN 2 / U10 / U12 / U14 / U16 / U19  

Adult Player Registration  

VRA Open (18+ team) and VRA Master (30+) are currently accepting registrations.  Please get your registration in quickly because for the last few years there has been a  waitlist. Our Masters team will offer the option of either League play or Development play, both which will practice at the same time.


VRA will once again offer off-line payments in the form of e-transfers, cheques or cash, in addition to credit card payments. Payments made with credit cards can be in full or instalments, $155.00 payment at registration, then two equal payments on August 1st  and September 1st. If you register after an instalment date, that amount is due at registration. 

Players that commit to playing goalie half time or more in older divisions (U12 to 18+) will receive a rebate equal to half the registration fee at the end of March 2025.  

Late Registration 

Players U10 and up can register to join Vancouver Ringette Association up until December 1st, 2024. Fun 1 and 2 players can register at any time during the season. The full registration amount must be paid, regardless of start date.  

Financial Hardships  

In the case of financial hardship, there are programs such as Jumpstart and Kidsport available that will help subsidize the registration fees. These programs require applications, so please be in touch with these organizations and inform the VRA Registrar or the VRA Treasurer if subsidy is needed. In addition, these programs do not cover the entire portion of the registration fee. Families must pay the difference before September 30, 2024, otherwise they will not be allowed on the ice.  

In addition to the registration fees, there may be extra fees required throughout the season, as decided upon by the team. Teams may choose to participate in tournaments.  These tournaments are not covered in the VRA registration fee. If financial help is  needed to pay for these extra-curricular fees, please contact the VRA Registrar or VRA Treasurer.
