C2: Let’s Play Gym Ringette!
Presenter:
Chantal Girouard
Target Audience:  All
Description:
Gym ringette is a refinement of gym floor sports that have been played since at least the 1950s, and probably before that. In its most elemental form, floor hockey was originally played with broomsticks, a felt and leather ring, and few, if any rules. In some respects, particularly the equipment, current Special Olympics floor hockey is a direct descendant of that original sport. Ringette’s rules and team-play concepts transfer particularly effectively to the gymnasium floor: – Gym ringette is an excellent co-ed activity, that requires both finess and strategy; – Gym ringette builds fitness. Players must rely on agility, speed and endurance; – Gym ringette helps players develop core physical literacy skills – strength, balance, flexibility, agility, and muscular coordination; – Gym ringette develops co-operation with teammates, socialization, and healthy competition. Gym ringette provides a highly active, participatory, low cost, structured physical education activity that provides students with a fun co-ed activity to enjoy, regardless of age, strength or size. A Let’s Play Gym Ringette program can also be a key component of the growth strategy for a local ringette association because the more young people that are exposed to ringette, the more new players will want to play the game.

C5: Floorball Development and Impacts in a Rural Community
Presenter:
Graham Nickerson
Target Audience: 
All
Description:
Floorball is a relatively new sport in Canada that combines many familiar elements of floor hockey, but with lighter equipment and rules that emphasise speed and agility.  The development of a youth floorball league in rural New Brunswick has had positive impacts on minor hockey in some obvious areas but also has benefitted other community stake holders in a number of ways. In other regions of Canada, the sport has focused on elite floorball development and while building relationships with the International Floorball Federation and other international bodies, a large segment of the population is still by and large ignorant to the sport. New Brunswick Floorball developed a different approach by developing a grass roots program to funnel players into elite teams as the provincial floorball organization develops and more stake holders invest in a provincial and national floorball program. Assessing some key indicators such as program enrollment and athletic performance using the New Brunswick government’s community statistical data called “My Community at a Glance Profile”, a number of community benefits have been identified. In 2015, New Brunswick Floorball is leading the nation in the growth of youth floorball enrollments which had several community benefits such as allowing minor hockey players to continue to develop skills, attracting non-hockey families to hockey culture, and providing new ways for organized sport to integrate with the community.
