AA Commitment

SARA recognizes that athletes have to balance many commitments. These commitments often include family, school and other sports. SARA expects and supports family and school commitments to take priority over ringette.
As part of preparing for the AA level of play, it is important that players and families are aware and can anticipate the commitment that this level of play will require. As part of the AA program throughout the season it is anticipated that there will be roughly 2 practices, 1-2 fitness sessions, and 1-2 games per week.
This training and development activity will vary on tournament weekends as some of these sessions will overlap with scheduled tournaments. In order to ensure the players are well prepared and avoid injury, in September before the season starts, there will be approximately 2-3 ice times per week.
SARA will apply the following principles regarding commitment expectations at the AA level.

At U14AA, we encourage the players to play other sports and we will work with the family and the athlete to balance ringette with other sports, especially school sports.

At U16AA, we expect ringette to be an increasing priority and focus for the athlete and family through the demonstration of their participation and commitment to the team.

At U19AA, other than family and school we expect rinegtte to be the main focus for the athlete.
If this is not possible, we would ask that you discuss this with the head coach prior to the evaluation process. If you require any further information or have any questions please contact:

SARA AA Coach Selection

SARA Members:

The SARA Coach selection panel is pleased to announce the selection of the U14, U16 and U19 Head Coaches for the AA division. The delay in the AA coach selection for the 2014-15 season was to ensure the appropriate review and analysis of the previous seasons activities and information.

This review consisted of the following steps:
1. Review of Coach Applications
2. Application and alignment of SARA coaching core competencies to coach applications
3. Interview and/or discussion with potential applicants
4. Review and analysis of submitted parent and player evaluation forms from last season
5. Additional interviews (as required) with coaches and parents
6. Application of Making Ethical Decisions (MED) framework
7. Analysis of Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Risks

During this process the panel identified the need to implement coach training and support. Steps are being made to put this plan into action for the 2014-15 season.
The coach selections for the AA level are as follows:

U14 AA – Coach Travis Sawchuk, Debbie Klatt and Erin Sawchuk

U16 AA – Coach Gary Shigeta

U19 AA – Coach Martin Gautier and Al Henderson

We are very excited and encouraged by the recent attendance at the “AA” information session held at Servus Place on June 16th and look forward to getting the player evaluations underway in August.
