Heavy Hearts in our Ringette Community

It is with profound sadness that the Calgary Ringette community has learned of the tragic passing of a young member of our Ringette family.   Meghan Bomford, member of NW U19A Grit passed away October 18th from a vehicle accident.

Her teammate Kelsey Nelson, and father, Shaun Bomford were also injured and are in critical condition.  Shaun has coached for both Cal-East and NW.  Kelsey and Meghan both volunteered as Junior coaches.

On behalf of the Board and membership of the Ringette Calgary Association, our thoughts are with their families, friends and teammates during this very difficult time. [Read More]

Tournament Attendance

NEW this year:

Please be advised that it is mandatory for all Calgary teams who have participated in ANY tournament (except the Esso Golden Ring) to complete a Tournament Attendance Form.

The form is to be completed AFTER attending the tournament.

It will only take a couple minutes but is critical information for our association
as we move forward.

Thank you for your anticipated compliance.

Coaching Clinics

Ringette Alberta has scheduled clinics for the upcoming season. Clinic dates and registration is available on their website.

Please note a few changes for NEW coaches. There will be a generic ringette module one evening prior to the CSI clinic and one evening of the Making Ethical Decisions course. Once you have taken these courses for either the CSI or CI, you do not need to retake for other coaching clinics.

Coaching Certification

Brand new coaches in either the CSI (Community-U12B and below) stream or the CI (Competitive-U12A and above) will need to take TWO evening classes. The Intro to Ringette course needs to be taken PRIOR to the Ringette Clinics and the Making Ethical Decisions course can be taken before or after. [Read More]
