Fun and Friendships Happen On Ice!
Do you have a child between the ages of four and six who would like to develop skating skills, while having fun and making friends on the ice? If your child can stand on skates, then they are ready for Bunnies!
West Ottawa Ringette’s Bunny Program is a learn to skate/introduction to the ringette program which runs every Saturday morning at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex.
The Bunny season lasts from late September to March, but children can register and start playing anytime throughout the season.

Petite-aged players wishing to play more competitively this year should attend the U12 PP (Petite Provincial) tryout sessions. Registered players will be informed which session to attend for the first tryout. The higher-level team is designated as “Blue”. Players will receive an email to return to the next PP session or to attend the first PP Red team tryout. Those players released from the PP Red team will play on one of the U12 Regional (recreational) teams.
