  • Women with the Canada Games on the brain can play ringette all over Halifax.

Originally developed in the ’60s for women as a no-contact alternative to hockey, ringette remains popular with women today. It’s a low-injury sport that focuses on camaraderie, says Bruce Hennebury, a volunteer with Ringette Nova Scotia. There’s a ringette association for every geographical area of the HRM, just check out the Ringette Nova Scotia website for details. For example, if you want to sign up for Open C, aka recreational ringette, in the Halifax/Chebucto area, you can email Paula Taylor at Ringette equipment, which consists of hockey padding with a different helmet and stick, can cost between $200 and $250. Try Sportwheels in Sackville for both new and used equipment. Memberships for Halifax ringette associations, he says, can cost $300 to $400 since ice time is so expensive.

Sport Nova Scotia, 425-5450 ext. 335, Sportwheels, 209 Sackville Drive, Lower Sackville, 865-9033
