"The purpose of the playing rules is to penalize a player who, by reason of an illegal act, has placed an opponent at a disadvantage."
This principle is the fundamental rule of Officiating. Every penalty decision made by an an On-Ice-Official (whether to call, or not to call) is judged on whether there has been both: an illegal infraction as per the rule book, and a material change in advantage to one team.
The purpose of this principle is to ensure that the game progresses smoothly and so that it is not unnecessarily interrupted by the official's whistle.
The Eastman Ringette Association's Player Development Committee is pleased to announce two player development streams for the 2016/17 season. The first stream is targetted at players and coaches in the various Eastman communities and will see an MRA-certified and junior instructor lead up to four practices to develop skills at no charge.

The second stream is targetted at players who have a desire to play A or AA. This stream will focus on developing skills, team play and Ringette "IQ" necessary to play at a higher level and will also incorporate a 3 on 3 game component where learned skills will be put to the test.

The Eastman Ringette Association is very pleased to announce that a U16A team, the Eastman Heat, will represent Eastman in the Winnipeg Ringette League during the upcoming 2016/17 Ringette season.

The Eastman U16AA Flames are Provincial champs! The Flames won the Provincial title today defeating the U16AA Angels 5 to 4 in overtime. The Angels rallied from two, two-goal deficits during today's game to tie it twice and send it into ovetime. The Flames won the best-of-three seires two games to none - each game only being won by one goal. Both games were hard-fought victories by the Flames who were matched against a very talented and determined Angels team.
The Flames were neck and neck with the Angles during the regular season; each team finishing the season with the same number of points. The Flames were awarded first place after a second tie breaker and received a bye for the first round of the Provincial playoffs. The Flames will now be "Team Manitoba" in the U16AA division at the upcoming 2016 National Ringette Championships in London, ON during April 3 to 9. The U16AA Angels will also be competing in the National Ringette Championships so Ringette fans in Manitoba can take comfort in the fact that the province will be represented by two very skilled teams.
GO FLAMES, GO!
