Using and old ringette stick to display your medals

  If you’ve collected many ringette medals since you started playing here’s a neat way to display them. First you need to figure out which ringette stick you want to use to display all of your medals. A good stick to choose is your first one because that way it can show your full ringette story from the beginning. Next gather up all your medals and put them in the order you would like to display them in. Once you have an order you like choose how you could like to hang your ringette Read more […]

Another season has come to an end

Well another ringette season has come to an end. It was a season full of a lot of ice times for myself. Between the start of September and the end of November I was at the rink/ on the ice with the team I had coached 40 times. As for playing we were two games away from playing in Provincials. It was an amazing season and I can’t wait to have games again next season. We just had our wind up party the other night and it was really great to see most of the team again. For some people like myself Read more […]

Playoff Update

Tonight we have another game. We won our first two games in overtime and now we have to win tonight to continue playing. The first team we played was Ruckus and it was a very close game.

It was a tough game to get through. At the end of the second period it was 5-5. Luckily we scored within 30 seconds of overtime. If we Read more […]

Playoff time again

Last night my team had our first playoff game- I wasn’t able to make it to the game, but we won the game. With playoffs starting again there’s going to be a lot more ringette in short periods of time. Some levels have already started and finished their playoffs while others like Open B have only just started. The format for playoffs here is a double knock out, which means if you lose two games you’re out of playoffs. It can be lucky and unlucky for teams. You could lose your first game and Read more […]

Red Deer Friends on Ice

This weekend I’m going to be in Red Deer with the Crossfire for the Red Deer Friends on Ice tournament. There are a total of 62 teams participating from the U6 through to Open D.

The first game for Crossfire is against Strathmore Ice Fusion and their second game on Friday is against Red Deer Rampage. On Saturday they don’t have a game Read more […]

Half a season already over

Another season is already half over. It feels as if the season only just started. I only have a short bit away from the rink until Crossfire has another practice and then three practices and a game later we’re going to Red Deer for the Friends on Ice tournament. For playing we finished off the first half of the season with four games and a fun ice in 7 days. We lost three of the four games and the game we won was a really great game and we were able to keep the lead the whole game. So far we’ve Read more […]
