About the Fraser Valley Ringette Association
The Fraser Valley Ringette Association (FVRA) is a volunteer non-profit amateur sport association, started in 1996 when the Aldergrove Ringette Association amalgamated with the Langley Ringette Association and later, Abbotsford Ringette.
Ringette is a Canadian sport invented by Sam Jacks of North Bay, Ontario in 1963. Originally designed to be a winter team sport for girls and an alternative to hockey, ringette has evolved into a unique, fast paced and exciting sport that combines the speed of hockey with the strategy of sports such as basketball or lacrosse.
Like other sports, ringette offers many opportunities for players, officials and coaches to participate and excel in their sport at many levels. Fraser Valley ringette athletes have competed, coached or officiated at World Ringette Championships with Team Canada and Team BC at National Ringette Championships.
