A relatively new Canadian sport, ringette was first played in 1963. Ringette athletes have the opportunity to compete at the World Ringette Championships, as well as, elite-level competitions within the domestic National Ringette League.
Ringette joined the Canada Winter Games program for the 1991 Games in PEI, and has remained on the program ever since. Notable alumni include Jennifer Botterill, Jamie Bell, and Dailyn Bell.
Constructed in advance of the PEI 2009 Canada Games, this state-of-the-art facility is the community gathering place in Montague and is the premier sports centre in eastern PEI. The facility includes a 200’ x 90’ ice surface, a warm up area, media room, and heated skybox area.
The MacLauchlan Arena is located within the Bell Aliant Centre, a multi-use recreational facility on the campus of the University of Prince Edward Island. The 160,000 square foot facility is a first class hosting venue of world, national and provincial tournaments, and includes two NHL sized ice pads and a 25 metre eight lane competition pool. The facility is also connected to the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre which will host badminton and wheelchair basketball events.
