This year we are doing our equipment swap with St. Albert Minor Hockey. SAMHA has agreed to accept donations from SARA families at their office in the Akinsdale Arena.
SAMHA/SARA Equipment Swap:
Drop off your gently used ringette equipment of any size to the SAMHA office (66 Hebert Road, between the Akinsdale and Kinex Arenas) from Tuesday, August 14th - Friday, August 24 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Equipment must be clean and in good working order. No rips, tears, or cracks, please.
Sticks and Bags accepted
Jerseys, socks, and personal protection apparel will NOT be accepted.
SHOP FOR FREE SATURDAY AUGUST 25th FROM 9 am - NOON at Akinsdale Arena
Remaining equipment will be donated to Esso Cup Fun Day & The BRICK Sports Central who refurbish equipment and give to families in need.
SARA will need 1 person to work at the SWAP on Saturday, August 25 from 9 am to noon to answer questions about ringette equipment – specifically that which differs from hockey. You will earn your two dibs for this season if you are able to do this.
Reminder to SARA members:
Two years ago, Ringette Alberta changed their residency policy and the new policy speaks to the importance of local associations being able to plan team numbers, roster sizes, and tiering for all their teams in any age division.
The policy lays out the process that needs to be followed by any player who wishes to try out for a team outside of their "home" association. If you are a SARA player who is planning to try out for a team outside SARA or are a player from outside SARA wishing to try out for one of our teams, please go to the Ringette Alberta website and read their residency policy to ensure you are following the proper process so that the planning for the 2018-2019 season can be smooth process for both the players and the associations.
The planning committee of the 2019 Western Canadian Ringette Championships (WCRCs) invites you to become a contributing partner of the fastest game on ice! This event is being held in St. Albert, Alberta from March 27, 2019 to March 30, 2019. Three full days of competition with the Provincial Champions from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and St. Albert Host teams, representing four age divisions all vying for the right to call themselves the Western Canadian Ringette Champions!
Welcome to U10! At this level, teams will be part of the Black Gold league. It is a larger time commitment than Active Start and may include tournaments and travel. The following information should give you a good overview of what to expect this year. We are looking forward to a great season of ringette!
Evaluation and team formation in September.
Additional team fees will be required upon team formation to cover the costs of tournaments, apparel, team functions, etc.
2-3 ice times per week will include a combination of practices and games depending on the league game schedule.
Weekday practices are 1 hour long and typically start either at 4:15 pm or 4:30pm.
Days of the week will depend on coach’s availability but typically run Monday – Thursday.
Fundamental skills development focus including: skating skills, ringette skills and basic goalie instruction for all players.
Emphasis on active involvement, participation and FUN!
Full ice games with a focus on basic concepts, rules and flow of the game. Continue to play half ice or cross-ice games in practice sessions.
Game format should be structured to maximize “time on the ring” for each player.
Coaches on the ice during games for the first half of the season for step 1 teams.
Strive for team travel to remain relatively close to home.
Tournament participation permitted. Quantity approved by the Association (1 - 2 maximum with recommendation that one be at or close to home and one “fun trip” away)
