Currently, Ringuette Quebec only offers female leagues for players above the age of 12. This prohibits all other non-female athletes from participating in ringette and has prevented the sport from expanding throughout the years. We would like Ringuette Quebec to make all of its leagues accessible to athletes of all genders by registering all leagues as mixed. This will promote inclusivity in the sport and help the sport develop, as ringette's growth is limited by its gender restrictions.

This is just one example of the obstacles non-female athletes face in ringette in Quebec: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/docproject/the-teens-are-alright-1.5877661/this-teen-was-a-celebrated-ringette-goalie-in-quebec-until-the-league-learned-he-was-transgender-1.5877666

Présentement, Ringuette Québec n'offre que des ligues féminines pour les athlètes de plus de 12 ans. Cela exclut toute autre personne de participer au sport et empêche le développement du sport dans son ensemble. Nous souhaitons que toutes les ligues de Ringuette Québec soient accessibles aux athlètes de tout genre en inscrivant leurs ligues comme étant mixtes. Ceci favorisera non seulement l'inclusivité, mais aussi le développement du sport, car la ringuette est contrainte aux restrictions en lien au genre.

Ce n'est qu'un exemple des défis auxquels les athlètes non féminins font face en ringuette au Québec: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/docproject/the-teens-are-alright-1.5877661/this-teen-was-a-celebrated-ringette-goalie-in-quebec-until-the-league-learned-he-was-transgender-1.5877666
