About the Tournament

Jump start the season with the Maritime's most anticipated event!

Operated by the Fredericton Youth Ringette Association, the Fredericton Youth Ringette Early Bird Tournament is the capital city’s largest annual sporting event.

The tournament, which has been operating for more than 20 years and attracts players from across the Maritimes, occurs over three days and is comprised of over 100 games which are played on six ice surfaces (within 4 venues) in Fredericton.

The 2021 tournament had more than 60 teams registered from the U9 to U19 category - we are expecting even more for 2022!

Approximately 3,000 people attend the Early Bird Tournament including athletes, coaches, officials and spectators generating an annual economic impact of more than $600,000. 


With a goal of creating a unique Players Experience this year we are pleased to announce the following activities for Players and Teams during the Tournament
