What an amazing weekend for ringette! Sherwood Park held a very exciting and amazing provincials tournament. To put on any tournament it takes a lot of hard work and dedication from the volunteers.

The U12C level has started their playoffs, but they are being put on hold this weekend for provincial playdowns.
