Lonnie Krahn Classic day two

Day two of a tournament is always busier than the first day it feels like. Today Crossfire had their first game at 1:30 p.m., so I went earlier than I needed to be there to watch more games. There's always more people at rinks to talk to on the second day of a tournament since not everyone can get the Friday off. Crossfire had a bit of a tough game, but with it being the very beginning of the season they're sill getting used to playing with each other. I'm not sure how their second game will Read more [...]

Lonnie Krahn Classic day one

Tournament season has officially begun in Calgary. Teams from throughout Alberta have made there way to Calgary for the 22nd Annual Lonnie Krahn Classic. There are 38 teams participating in 10 levels ranging from U10 to U19A (3 U10, 4 U12A, 4 U12B, 4 U1C, 4 U14A, 4 U14B, 4 U16A, 4 U16B, 3 U19A, and 4 U19B). This morning U16B Cal East Crossfire (the team I'm coaching) played Indus Lightning and it was a really good game, but they ended up losing 9-6. The game was back and forth for Read more [...]

Winning the Lonnie Krahn Classic in 2014

Winning the Lonnie Krahn Classic is something that I’m not going to forget anytime soon. It was the first time I was with a team that won a tournament, and the games against the other team in the tournament were the tensest games that weekend.

I’m pretty sure both games were won by only a goal, and being on the bench was almost stressful with how close the games were.

It was an amazing weekend for ringette I remember, and it is for sure a weekend that I’m not going to forget.

Lonnie Krahn Classic day three

What an amazing weekend. Four games for the Fireballs, they didn’t give up at all during any of their games. They won the tournament for their division, which they played an amazing last game of the tournament. It was such a great game to watch and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings for them, we have two more tournaments before Christmas and at least one after, so it should be a great year. The game was tied in the last two minutes and they scored the winning goal with a minute Read more [...]

Lonnie Krahn Day Two

Today was another great day for ringette. The Fireballs won their game this afternoon and now they're playing in the final of the tournament in the U12C division. They're playing the team they played yesterday morning so it should be a great game to watch. For me tomorrow it will most likely be a game that will drive us coaches crazy. In this tournament there are only four teams playing in the U12C division, so the top two teams are the ones playing in the final. For every win a team gets two points, Read more [...]
