    Calling all photographers!

    By Anne Hanson 04/09/2018, 11:45am MDT

    Ringette photos needed!

    The National Ringette School, along with the Ringette Store, is creating a 16-month calendar. It will cover dates from September 2018 to August 2019 and feature some of the best Ringette action shots and Ringette moments that we can find. 

    The calendar will go on sale towards the end of June. Our hope is that these calendars will be proudly displayed at home and at work and that they will prompt conversations about the sport!

    How will we find those photographs? Through a photo contest!

    Please send us your “best pics” with a brief description of what is depicted and what each photo means to you.  It can be an action shot, a heart-warming photo or anything that says "This is Ringette".  We will select the 16 best photographs and use them to create the calendar. 

    As we receive these photos, we will post them to our Facebook page so that others can see them and make comments. Everyone is limited to no more than three submissions. Entries must be received by no later than June 11, 2018.  (We will need to ensure that the participants in the photos are okay with them being used in the calendar).

    Prizes:
    The photographers who have their photo selected will receive a “#1 Ringette Photographer” clothing package (hoodie and t-shirt) along with a free calendar and, most importantly, credit in the calendar for the photo used.

    Photos can be sent to questions@nationalringetteschool.com.  

    NOTE FROM SARA: If you are submitting, please include us (news@stalbertringette.com) in the email. We would love to see and share your ringette action shots!

    Looking for an off-season sport? Try Lacrosse!

    By Anne Hanson 02/23/2018, 11:00am MST

    St Albert Rams Lacrosse Club registration is open

    Lacrosse is a great off-season sport for ringette.  It is very fast, promotes a high level of fitness, and improves eye-hand coordinate. 

    Lacrosse is similar to ringette in that box lacrosse is a five-on-five game played in an arena with goalies.  There has been a lot of recent research and discussion regarding sport specialization and the advantages of being a multi-sport athlete.   

    Lacrosse has a lot of transferable skills to ringette and vice versa and it is also our National Summer Sport.  Below are a couple of hockey links that speak to the benefits of lacrosse as an off season sport to hockey.  A lot of NHL players played lacrosse and promote the benefits of lacrosse, including Wayne Gretzky.  A list of some of these NHL players is included in the second link.
