Sample Practice Plans

Please click on the Practice Plans for Coaches button below for a direct link to 12 practice plans developed for coaches to implement at practices.

The practice plans below have been developed to assist coaches by ensuring all required technical skills are taught during the season, in the proper stages of skill development and in the proper order. There are no diagrams attached to allow coaches to fill in their own, but there is reference to drills and diagrams in the Ringette Canada Drill Book (available to purchase or provided at all coaching clinics). Be sure to read the heading for each division as it outlines the season map.
