Rise Ringette Camp started in May of 2016 when Kirsti Mason decided she wanted to fulfill her dream of running her own ringette camp. In July of 2016, two week-long half-day camps were held in Nova Scotia at the BMO Centre and Cole Harbour Place. Since then, Rise Ringette Camp has partnered with Ringette Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia U12 Enrichment Program, RingStart and hosts camps over the Holiday break. Rise Ringette Camp has since expanded by offering week-long full day camps to athletes in U7-U14 and running weekly evening development sessions to athletes in U14-U19 (Elite Ringette Academy) in partnership with Ascent Performance.

There are four main focuses to Rise Ringette Camp:

1) Ice Sessions

Strategy Sessions

It is often said that every sport is 80-90% mental which is why each camp will include five hours of strategy sessions. These sessions will include discussions or activities regarding goal setting, pre-game mental preparation, nutrition and how to handle various game scenarios. These strategy sessions will vary dependent on age. High Performance groups will dive into the specifics where as Development groups may play mind-challenging games.
