Make recommendations for what type of athlete would enjoy playing this game. What skills does it demand?

Pooja:  This game is an excellent way to develop skating skills for the beginning skater.  It is a non-contact sport.  This game is a combination of hockey, soccer and basketball.  Ringette is primarily for girls and women of all ages to compete.  The game develops strong motor skills, team play and coordination.

What are your feelings about this game? Did you enjoy playing it? Would you recommend it?

I think this game is complicated.  It takes a lot of team work with the rules of the game.  If the team works together I am sure that this will be fun.
