Ringette Canada and Ringette Alberta require coaches to be trained and in some case certified to coach ringette. The requirements vary with the age and level of the participants, but Ringette Canada has a very simple web-site to help coaches determine what qualifications and certification they require for the division they'd like to coach.
Ringette ABC offers a mechanism and guidelines for skill development recognition. This program will evolve and offer additional initiatives in future seasons. A progress evaluation structure called Ringette ABC Days has been developed along with a skills progression checklist and recognition items - bandannas. Lots of resources including practice plans for all divisions available at Ringette Canada
