    Turkey Ring Sponsorship Opportunities

    By Anne Hanson 09/09/2018, 10:45am MDT

    Help us make the 20th annual Turkey Ring a success!

    Dear Association Members,
    I would like to welcome everyone back to the 2018-2019 St. Albert Ringette season!  September is a very busy month at the rinks as we host evaluations, create teams and fill team staff positions.  Work behind the scenes has been ongoing in preparation for the St. Albert Turkey Ring Tournament, which for many teams is the first Ringette Tournament of the season.  This year marks the 20th Annual Turkey Ring Tournament and your Turkey ring Committee is well on our way in organizing the event.
     
    St. Albert Ringette Association is a registered non-profit amateur sport association and as such depends on fundraising to support the development opportunities for our athletes.  Our Turkey Ring tournament is one of St. Albert Ringette Association's largest fundraising events of the year.
     
    Its success is solely dependent on the participation of the association members. Therefore, I am encouraging you all to help make this tournament a success.  Sponsorship is one of the keys to success for any non-profit organization so if you know of anyone or if you yourself can help out, either financially, or by donating to our silent auction, raffle table, or even if you have extra time and would like to volunteer, please contact Debbie Stahn at turkeyring@stalbertringette.com
     
    Some things to consider for donations are Oiler Tickets, Prints, movie baskets, liquor basket, workout basket, Ringette bags or sticks, jewelry, scarves and other accessories, restaurant gift certificates, entertainment, grocery & retail gift cards, and monetary donations to be put towards buying items for a raffle basket. 
     
    All sponsors will be recognized in the Tournament E-Program.  Please remember to take the attached sponsorship letter when seeking donations.  With only 4 weeks left to go, donations and sponsors are required immediately.

    I wish to thank you for your time and consideration in making our 20th Annual Turkey Ring Tournament a huge success once again!

    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!

    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)

    Servus Place & Akinsdale-Kinex Arena Warm-ups

    By Ron Heigh 09/28/2016, 7:00am MDT

    To all users of Servus Place & Akinsdale-Kinex Arenas:

    As your seasons are starting up we are once again sending the warm-up guidelines to our membership so that everybody is 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 facilities.

    Servus Place
     
    The option for Servus Place is outlined in the attached guideline is the safest and least disruptive to all patrons of the facility. 
    CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD GUIDELINES

    Please be advised that staff will be stopping teams that are doing activities in prohibited areas and directing them to the area designated as feasible. Teams in the designated areas of Go Auto Arena that are disruptive to the on ice activity will be asked to stop and leave the area. 
     
    We ask that all coaches and players comply with staff requests/direction.
     
    Akinsdale/Kinex Arenas
     
    All team warm ups in the seating/public areas at Akinsdale/Kinex Arenas are prohibited. Activity in these areas is unsafe, and is extremely disruptive to other users of the facility. Teams will be advised to utilize their dressing room areas for static warm ups. The City is currently working in partnership with St. Albert Minor Hockey in planning a project that deals with the warm up space challenges at Akinsdale/Kinex Arena.
