Hello ringette families,
We hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the sunshine. Although it is not ringette weather, we want to provide you with an update of the information we know to date regarding the 2021-2022 ringette season.
At our recent AGM, a new Board of Directors was elected. Thank you to Erin, Jeannette, Tina, Lisa, and Paul for all their work and their time volunteering with LRA. Welcome to Melinda, Tammy, Sam, Kayden, and Sammy as the newest members to join the board. The board is energetic and excited for the upcoming season. While we don’t know at this point what restrictions may be in place, we are busy planning so we are ready to get back on the ice in September. We are looking forward to a return to a more normal ringette season and are excited to get the girls back on the ice.
It’s been a challenging year and we want to welcome everyone back to ringette as well as grow our numbers. We plan to run a promotional campaign starting with increasing our social media presence. Please help us out by getting on board with #LynxNation by joining us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. As we want to showcase our London players, all ages/all levels, please send any video clips/photos to Kayden at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are able to help us out in any way through promotional assistance or suggestions, please contact Tammy at email@example.com
Our registration system will be opening up shortly. At this point, we will not be requesting payment as we are just trying to gauge the number of players we can expect this season. This information is important as it assists us in determining number of teams, coaches needed, and ensuring we have sufficient ice time with the City, so please take the time to register your player as soon as possible.
If your daughter is interested in trying out for a competitive team for the upcoming season, please submit your intent here (link to intent). The deadline has been extended to June 30th and tryouts will be in the fall (September/October), subject to current health guidelines. If you want more information on the competitive program, please contact Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s exciting to hear that Ringette Canada has announced the Canadian Ringette Championships will be held in Calgary in April 2022. We know that all U16AA and U19AA look to earn a berth to compete in that event. Also, Ringette Ontario has announced the AA/A Championships will be held in early March 2022, although the locations are yet to be determined. While the regional championship dates have not yet been announced, it’s exciting news that these events are being scheduled.
We are committed to building our ringette program in London and will be seeking out your feedback and suggestions through a survey in the next few weeks. It would be appreciated if you would take the time to complete it as the information you provide will help us greatly in our planning.
Please watch our website and our social media feeds on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter as we will continue to provide further updates on the upcoming season and many fun events.
Have a great summer and stay safe! Go Lynx Go!
