WFRA Canada Day: Volunteers Needed

Posted June 17, 2022
Hello Everyone.
Canada Day is fast approaching and with it is our community’s celebration at the waterfront. This will include the Kids Zone activities. On Friday July 1st we want to join the community and run an activity for kids and youth at the Kids Zone. The activity will run from 12:30pm-4:30pm, with preparation and set up taking place between 11:00am and 12:30pm. We have been invited by the organizers to take part, as they see the healthy development of the children in our region as a part of our mandate. We are in the process of completing the paperwork to join this activity and need to rally some volunteers! We have done this event before and typically bring some ringette sticks, rings, a shooting mat, pylons, and if we can, track down a small net. This lets the volunteers interact with the kids and their families by letting them pass the ring around, try and flip a ring onto a pylon, or try and shoot the ring. It’s a great opportunity for us to get the sport of ringette seen and create interest. If you are interested and available to run or participate in this activity on Canada Day please let me know. This year it is just the afternoon so it is a bit more manageable. In the past we have had families, older youth, and adult players/volunteers come out to run the event. Please let me know if you are interested and what support you might need to do the event. Not to worry, we have all the gear (except we might need to track down a net).

Hope you are doing well.
Darren Pace, President WFRA

Northeast Region AA Development Program

Posted May 22, 2022
Hi Everyone,
I am not sure if you are familiar with the Northeast Region AA development program, so here is the information. There are links for the presentation, a sample budget and itinerary for what a typical camp looks like:

NER AA Sample Itinerary
NER AA Sample Budget
Players can join for the development at the camps and choose to try out for the team or not.
I was involved with the program for a number of years, and it was a great opportunity to meet the players from our region and gain exposure to a more competitive level of play. Attending these camps would be in addition to what is happening with the local team.
Please complete this form if you are interested in the 2022-2023 Northeast Ringette AA Program (U14 and U16 teams).
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the program.
Thank you,
Erin Johns – Rep Director WFRA
