National Ringette League

Program Mandate

The mandate of the Saskatchewan Heat NRL Program is to provide a continuum of athletes and coaches with a high-performance daily training environment that will significantly improve performance levels and standings of Saskatchewan athletes and teams at National Ringette League competitions, including the Canadian Ringette Championships.

In addition to success at these competitions the program is geared to develop selected athletes’ technical, physical, and psychological skills by exposing these athletes to enriched levels of training and competition. Aside from skill acquisition, athletes will be provided opportunities for personal development.

Use of the Sport Medicine and Science Council of Saskatchewan’s programs and services will be required for this program. These programs will help support and optimize competitive sport performance through the delivery of high quality and evidence-based sport medicine and science services.

The Saskatchewan Heat NRL Program will also assist in the development of the sport throughout the province by working in conjunction with other coaches and volunteers committed to the development of high-performance athletes and coaches.
