Dear Ringette Families,
During this unsettling time, we hope your family is healthy and staying active. The purpose of this communication is touch base, provide a few updates and let you know we miss seeing you at the rink.
The LRA continues preparation for 2020-2021 season and while there is a hurdle with COVID-19 restrictions; the team is excited to consider how we can best prepare for when we can once again hit the ice.
What are we doing?
Coaching selection and timing for tryouts are in progress. The LRA is working with Ringette Ontario for guidance; as well, government direction will dictate timing. The LRA will share information as received. Our ice scheduler is working hard to secure ice as appropriate.
Registration for 2020-2021- stay tuned for more information and any changes in process.
The LRA is securing refunds for Regionals and Provincial tournaments. LRA will keep membership posted on next actions.
Reach out to your fellow Ringette families and keep positive. We are in this together!
Do not forget to review the LRA website (Current News Page), Western Region and Ringette Ontario if you are looking for more information.
Keep informed on the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM); date to be determined. Will not take place 12May2020.
Every year there is an opportunity to join the LRA Board and keep our sport alive. This year there are six board positons open (various titles). See website for more details. Nominations and voting take place at the AGM. Date of AGM meeting to be determined shortly and share with membership.
Executive Treasurer is open; start date is ASAP. Please reach out to President or Vice President if interested.
Contact Equipment Manager Shawn Reidy or your Head Coach.
The arenas are closed making equipment collection difficult; however, we can arrange to collect as needed. Reach out to Shawn. The jerseys, goalie equipment, rings, first aid kits etc. are costly. We appreciate your effort to care for these items and help reduce cost for our membership.
Springette- returns are processed; contact Andrew Wilkie with questions
Summer Ringette- while we are hopeful to get on the ice in Aug, there are no further updates (payment not accepted); contact Andrew Wilkie with questions <<insert email>>
Regional Coaches- thinking of coaching! This is a great time to gain or maintain credentials to coach. Reach out to Coaching Coordinator Jen or Lisa who can point you in the right direction!
