The SARA AGM is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, May 22 at 7 p.m. in the Reliance Room at Servus Place.
In accordance with our Bylaws, we are posting the nominations we have received to date for the open positions on the SARA Board.
Please note that nominations for these positions will be called from the floor at the AGM.
It’s that time of year again!!
St. Albert Ringette will be participating in the Rainmaker Rodeo Parade on Saturday, May 26th. Details are below, all interested participants can email Jenn at firstname.lastname@example.org
All participants must be at the parade starting point on Sir Winston Churchill Hill (precise meeting point tbd) at 8:30 am on Saturday, May 26th.
The parade route will start at the curling rink corner on Sir Winston Churchill Hill avenue, east to St. Anne Street, northeast to Perron Street, north to Mission Avenue, west to Mount Royal Drive, north to St. Vital Avenue, east on St. Vital, and ending at the church parking lot where participants will then be picked up.
As the length of the parade depends on the amount of entries, there is no set end time. Please be at the end point to receive your child(ren) by 11:00am, with the understanding that they may or may not be there just yet.
Participants in the parade will be awarded 2 DIBS credits valid for the 2017/18 season only.
All participants will be provided SARA jerseys to be worn for the duration of the parade. There will not be a float this year, as we are trying to gather a large (and loud!) walking presence. Our entry last year had a fantastic turnout, and I’m hoping for that, plus more!!
We will be handing out candy and rings, as well as flyers for the June 2nd Come Try Ringette session. If you know of anyone interested in trying Ringette, the parade is a fun way to garner some interest and excitement! Participants do not have to be current SARA members. All ages are welcome!
Thank you so much for your time and interest in creating exposure for St. Albert Ringette. It’s activities like this that help grow our sport and bring recognition to our players!

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