On a regular basis, Ringette Canada selects and prepares national teams to participate in the World Ringette Championship. While a World Ringette Championship was not held in 1998, teams from Canada and Finland toured Europe in a promotional Summit Series. In Colmar, France, Team Finland beat Canada 10-8 in the 5th and deciding game to win the Summit Series 3-2.
This series between the two best teams in the world displayed ringette at its best and sparked great interest at stops in Germany, France, Sweden and France. In 2013, the format of the event changed to include competition in the U19 and senior age divisions.
