Welcome to St.Albert Ringette - Active Start Program
I started my ringette career at 3 years old and continued to play until 2008 when my team won the National Championship right here in St.Albert. After that, I switched to hockey (I know… ) for 2 years, then stopped skating all together to focus on my studies in the Theatre Arts Program at MacEwan University. After completing the program (when I wasn't busy acting in local theatre shows) I began to coach with SARA as well as run arts programs through E4C’s Art Start program. It was there that I found my true calling… TEACHING! I am currently in my final semester of Elementary Education at the University of Alberta and will be starting my final practicum in St.Albert on October 10th (the same day as our first practice).
This is my 5th year coaching with SARA and I am loving it more and more every year! I am beyond excited to meet all of you on Tuesday, October 10th for our 5:45 pm practice! If you would like to know anything else, feel free to send me an email or chat with me before or after practice! :)
MY COACHING PHILOSOPHY:
I believe that children at this age should be taught the fundamentals in a POSITIVE and ENCOURAGING environment that promotes CONFIDENCE. I strongly believe that children need to feel successful before you are able to challenge them.
My goals for the season are:
• Each child will have fun and learn to love the game as much as I do
• Each child will learn fundamental skills and improve.
• Each child will learn basic rules of the game and practice etiquette
