The board of directors for Summerside Ringette is busy preparing for another exciting season with one new and wonderful twist.
After Summerside successfully co-hosted the Canadian ringette championships (CRC) with Charlottetown last spring, the board plans to use some of the proceeds for a legacy program. For this year only, the first 16 players to register in both the under-8 and under-10 divisions can do so for $100.
“We were discussing where to invest the proceeds from the CRCs and decided to start with our youngest age levels,” said club vice-president Jeff MacCallum. “We know, based on the conversations during last year’s championships, that there are still a lot of girls who aren’t fully aware of the sport.
“Our legacy program may provide enough support for some families to give the sport a try.”
Registration will take place at Credit Union Place on Friday, Sept. 13, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Sept. 14, from 10 a.m. to noon.
Come try ringette
There will be a come try ringette session for any female aged five to 14 wanting to give the sport a try before registering at Credit Union Place on Sept. 13. at 5:45 p.m.
Details regarding the come try event, and all of Summerside ringette programs, including registration information, can be found on their website at www.summersideringette.com.
