From the frozen canal to our new state of the art home Tiger Arena, hockey and Ridley have been indivisible for more than 125 years. For more than a century, the Tigers have played Canada’s game like it was their own. Founded in 1889, the game of hockey has been a part of the school as long as any of its other traditions.

Both our Prep Boys and Girls programs play approximately 70 games per year, as part of a two-league system, as well as in international showcase events. Our programme has enjoyed tremendous success, including five Mid-West Prep Hockey League (MPHL) Championships in the past six years; and back-to-back CISAA Championships. Most competitions are played in central locations to limit missed time in the classroom and maximize exposure. Our players benefit from the opportunity to play teams across North America—while also seeing some of the top post-secondary facilities in the country.

Preparation for this level of play includes daily on-ice practices, as well as multiple off-ice sessions, which include strength training and active recovery. Training and competition are supported by a dedicated coaching staff with national and international experience, Ridley’s athletic therapy and school medical team, a strength and conditioning coach, and other professional instructors.

Away from the ice, players are educated by Ridley’s dedicated professional faculty and supported by academic advisors, tutors, and residential life staff.

Playing at Ridley has allowed me to not only excel at the next level for hockey, but also academically. Without attending Ridley I would not be where I am today. From the coaches I had to my teachers and friends I now call my family, my three years at Ridley were unforgettable and I cannot thank the hockey program and school enough.

When you’re living with teammates, going to class with them, having lunch together, hanging out in the dorms, it reall changes how you gel as a team. You grow incredibly close to one another and it translates onto the ice.
