According to the The International Ringette Association:
Ringette is a Canadian game that was first introduced in 1963 in North Bay, Ontario. Developed originally for girls, Ringette is a fast-paced team sport on ice in which players use a straight stick to pass, carry, and shoot a rubber ring to score goals.

Ringette is played on a rink and there are five players plus goalie on the ice at the same time from each team. Ringette is fun and fast, it has no body contact and there is a need to cooperate to be able to move from one side to another.
Again and again, I'm finding new sports that emphasize a gentler, more cooperative, and yet physically and mentally engaging interaction. I think there's a message here.

According to Ringette Canada:
The growth has continued internationally with the formation of associations in the U.S.A., Finland, Sweden, Russia, and France. In addition, Ringette Canada has been instrumental in demonstrating the game in the Netherlands, Switzerland, West Germany, along with New Zealand, Australia and Japan.
Yup, definitely a message. One that is clearly being listened to. Very carefully.
