    Team Warm-Ups 2018-19-SERVUS PLACE & AKINSDALE-KINEX ARENAS

    By KRISTEN SCHOPPER 09/24/2018, 7:00am MDT

    TO ALL USERS OF SERVUS PLACE & AKINSDALE-KINEX ARENAS:
    Please find attached guidelines regarding team warm-ups regarding pre-competition dry land warm ups within Servus Place & Akinsdale-Kinex Arenas.  As your seasons are starting up we are once again sending the guidelines to distribute to your coaches so they are aware and clear on the process. We respect the desire for pre-competition dry land training; however we are limited as to available space, and are responsible for the safety of the teams and other patrons who frequent the facility.

    To assist with this initiative we ask that this email and attached
    documents be shared among your members at your discretion so they are educated on the guideline. Signage is posted throughout the facilities.

    Also, a quick reminder on dressing room access.  Dressing rooms are available up to 1 hour prior to booking time & groups must leave the dressing room 30 minutes after the end of booking time.  Many teams show up 1 ½ - 2 hours before their ice time and want to get into the rooms.
    This is not possible due to the high volume of bookings.  We ask that the coaching staff and players respect this and do not rush other users out of the room.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.

    U10 Parent & Player Information

    By Anne Hanson 07/21/2018, 4:30pm MDT

    What does the U10 season look like?

    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)

    Season – Mid September to early March (approx. 25 weeks)
