Cost Analysis

Cost of participation in organized sport is a challenge for many Alberta families. We know that with increasing costs there is downward pressure on participation, therefore, if we are to achieve our goal of 75-22, making ringette more financially accessible for average Alberta families as quickly as possible, is a priority.
While we may wish to be aware of the cost of ringette relative to other sports, if all sports are a financial concern for Alberta families, we need to be better than the rest. Regardless, we need to focus on our cost relative to the average Alberta families’ ability to pay.
The Committee ’s job is to analyse the cost of participation in ringette and bring forward recommendations to the Ringette Alberta Board and Group Members to improve financial accessibility.
  • Analysis of the current cost of participation
  • Assess the gap
  • Set a target for closing the gap
  • Prepare recommendations for change and present to membership at the May 2018 AGM

Ice Advocacy

To achieve our goal of 75-22, we will need to secure enough ice to accommodate the increase in players and our development objectives for those players. The Ice Access Team’s objective is to prepare an Ice Access Strategy to help all Group Members of Ringette Alberta obtain no less than the ice required to meet Long Term Athlete Development Objectives.
  • Establish baseline – what is the status of ice today?
  • Re-affirm the target and develop an Action Plan to achieve
  • Present to membership at the May 2018 AGM

Officials to Athletes Ratio

The quality and quantity of officials are an important aspect of athlete development. While our community is working towards an increase in player registration as per our 75-22 plan we must also see a complimentary increase of qualified officials. As athlete numbers increase so too must the number of qualified officials.
Working closely with the Come Try Ringette Optimization Team which will define athlete registration projections, the Officials to Athletes Ratio Team will build an action plan to ensure sufficient qualified officials are available to meet athlete development program requirements.
  • Produce a report to present to membership at the May 2018 AGM (which will include the following)
    • Recommended ratio of officials to athletes (geographic and stage)
    • Determine baseline (current status)
    • Establish an appropriate target
    • Produce Action Plan
