The Ringette Calgary community is sad to share that our good friend and Patron, Hazel Skinner passed away on May 22nd at the age of 92 years. Hazel was instrumental in the creation of the Friends First program and encouraged young women to be kind, support one another and pay it forward. We will always be grateful to Hazel for her support and will continue to carry her message forward as inspiration.

Thank you to all of you for doing everything you could possibly do to keep your players, parents and team staff as safe as possible during a very challenging season. As League Director, I am very proud of our protocols, compliance and safety record.
Here’s hoping the 2021-22 season comes with a little more “normalcy”, and that we will see you all back in the rinks, but in the meantime, stay safe.
Judy Renneberg, League Director
