Ringettes Rock at ADM Clinic!
It turns out, I’m not the only one intrigued and impressed by the ringette. At a recent ADM coaching clinic at the Pepsi Center, home of the Colorado Avalanche, coaches queried USA Hockey ADM Regional Manager Joe Doyle about them. And once again the players, this time Squirts, vied to get their sticks on the ringettes. According to Doyle, the drill — which involved holding onto the ringette while making big, wide, exaggerated fakes — helps with:
- Strengthening the bottom hand to help with competing for the puck
- Keeping the stick on the ice
- Avoiding high sticks
- Fostering creative moves
Aside from serving as a great segue to pucks in hockey drills, ringette is a sport in its own right. Popular with girls in Canada, the sport is similar to hockey — except the fast-paced game is played with a straight stick. Learn more about ringette in the following video:
