Each athlete hoping to play in the National Ringette League is to declare which team(s) they are interested in playing for by August 1, 2019.
Following this initial declaration period, there will be a secondary declaration opportunity beginning on August 12, 2019 for athletes who missed August 1st deadline.
Teams will have the option of sending interested athletes an invitation to join their team or attend tryouts.
An athlete can accept more than one invitation to team tryouts, so long as that information is made available to all teams involved and does not prevent another athlete from trying out for a team.
If an athlete agrees to join a team, she signs an athlete agreement for one season.
If an athlete is not offered a roster spot on any team(s), she may approach other team(s) about a tryout of a roster spot. Those teams have no obligation to provide a try out or a roster spot to a player at that time. Teams not on the athlete’s list may approach the athlete with an offer of a roster spot at this time.
Once an athlete has signed an athlete agreement for the season, she may not change teams unless a grievance is filed and approved by the NRL Operations Council.
