					                            Development / Competition RATIO
 Overview
       As the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) process evolves for ringette, it raises as many questions as it answers.
       One issue that repeatedly surfaces is the need to address 'competition'.

       Competition is a critical issue in all sports, especially team sports. Unfortunately, the system of competition in ringette was
       never properly designed; it simply 'evolved' on an improvised basis without consideration for the sport science of athlete
       development. Now many competition schedules are considered part of the tradition of ringette, and these habitual patterns
       are passionately adhered to.       "This is the way we have always done it!"

       One of the most common problem is that adult competition schedules have often been superimposed on young athletes.

       According to Canadian Sports for Life LTAD , sport organizations need to:
         • Ensure competition scheduling is balanced to consider the development of abilities required in the technical developed
           by each sport.
         • Determine the training and competition required for the development of top international performers.
         • Identify the optimal training to competition ratio at each stage.
         • Design competition schedules to ensure optimal periodization occurs.

       In order to make the transition as seamless as possible for coaches as they move towards LTAD, a number of publications,
       tools and definitions' will be developed and distributed to the ringette community. These are a 'work-in-progress' and likely
       will evolve to better meet the needs of the coach and athletes alike.

 Definitions       (Ontario Ringette LTAD)
  WHAT IS COMPETITION?
      This term refers to a sanctioned game that is used to determine standings, ranking or qualification.
      This would include:

         • Any sanctioned league game, the outcome of which will be used to determine rankings for a championship, such as:
             • League finals or championships
             • Regional's
             • Provincials

         • Any sanctioned tournament game the outcome of which will be used to determine tournament rankings, including:
             • Round-Robin games        • Semi-Final games
             • Mini-games               • Final (championship) games

      WHAT IS DEVELOPMENT (training)?
         This term refers to non-competitive team-oriented events that are organized with the goal of achieving
         greater success in competitions. In order for an event to be classified as a training event, the entire
         team must be invited to participate. Training events must be supervised by a member of the bench staff.
         Training includes, but is not limited to:

         • any on-ice session aimed at improving technical skills and strategy. Including:
             • practice sessions (including skating clinics and skills competitions)
             • scrimmages (no officials)
             • exhibition games (with officials)
             • consolation games during tournaments (usually needed to meet tournament game guarantees)
             • any game that is used solely for seeding and not for ranking purposes (often during first half of season)

         • any off-ice session aimed at improving technical skills and strategy. Including:
             • any gym sessions or 'dry land training' aimed at improving physical literacy
             • any team meetings used to discuss strategy or techniques
             • any team bonding session used to enhance the athletes’ abilities to work together as a team. Including:
                  • team parties            • team excursions
                  • team dinners

   RATIO Log Sheet
          The RATIO Log Sheet is a tool that will assist coaches to track their on-going Development / Competition RATIOS.
          Currently it is an Excel spread sheet. The hopes are that the tool (if found useful) will be migrated to be on-line on
          the Ontario Ringette web site.

      RATIOS
          We recognize the challenge of ice time within your association and the worries of meeting objectives when so much
          is not in control of the coach. During the 2009/2010 season Athlete Development reviewed the practice to game
          ratios used within the associations and we believe that the ratios listed below are easily achievable.

      ACTIVE START & FUNDAMENTALS
          U7 (Minor Bunny )                                                 U8 ( Major Bunny)
          Although there is no suggested practice/game ratio at this level, the majority of the time will be spent on practices.
          For this reason we have chosen a training/game ratio of 100/0. 100 percent development periods versus 0 percent
           competition sessions.
          The focus for the U7 & U8 level will continue to be having FUN and becoming comfortable on the ice using simple
          group skating games and activities. Develop basic skating skills such as basic stance, falling and getting up,
          edges, balance on skates, start, stop, walking all directions, forward/backward stride and glide. Introduce sticks
          and rings, playing fun games to learn how to send, receive and carry a ring. If associations want to schedule
          exhibition games they may do so with any association within the province…no official schedule will be issued.
          If needed coaches can be on ice to assist players with the development of the sport. LTAD also supports the need
          for officials to officiate this level as this allows our young officials to utilize their skills and train for the higher
          levels of play.
      LEARNING TO TRAIN
          U9 & U10 (Novice): A training/game ratio of 70/30. 70 percent development periods versus 30 percent competition sessions.
          U12 (Petite): A training/game ratio of 70/30. 70 percent development periods versus 30 percent competition sessions.
      TRAINING TO TRAIN
          U14 (Tween): A training/game ratio of 60/40. 60 percent development periods versus 40 percent competition sessions.
          U16 (Junior): A training/game ratio of 60/40. 60 percent development periods versus 40 percent competition sessions.
      TRAIN TO COMPETE
          U19 (Belle): A training/game ratio of 40/60. 40 percent development periods versus 60 percent competition sessions.
      LEARN TO WIN
          18+ (Open): A training/game ratio of 25/75. 25 percent development periods versus 75 percent competition sessions.
