In March 2015 we have a HUGE opportunity to showcase our association, our town and the fastest game on ice.
 
As previously announced, NDRA is extremely pleased to have been selected as the Host Town of the 2015 Provincial "A" Championships. 
At this time we are looking for volunteers that would like to be a Chair/Co-Chair person for 6 Sub-Committee's.  Each Chairperson will be responsible for forming a committee and having monthly meetings to ensure deadlines and requirements are met.  The Chairperson will also be required to attend monthly Provincial Committee meetings with the reports from their committee.
 
We are now accepting names for the Committee positions until April 6th.  Please send your name to Shawn Linton (President of NDRA) @ shawnlinton777@gmail.com by the 6th.
Please review the attached "Provincial Flow Chart" that gives a brief break down of the 6 committees and some of the roles involved with each one.   There will be lots of opportunities to be part of the sub-committees to assist in making this event a success.
 
As well, the following link will provide you with a VERY detailed document about hosting a Provincial Championship.  Please don't be overwhelmed; this document is meant to give you the details to what each committee will be doing.  Together "many hands make light work" and we can do this together.

The NDRA AGM is quickly approaching and we are looking for volunteers to be on the Board of Directors.  As everyone knows associations like ours cannot run without the help of volunteers.

EXCITING NEWS FROM YOUR BOARD!
Mar 6, 2014, 6:27 pm

EXCITING NEWS FROM YOUR BOARD!

 

In December, the NDRA Board submitted a bid to the Ontario Ringette Association to host the 2015 Provincial “A” Championships.  It is with great pleasure that we announce that NDRA was awarded the honor of hosting the tournament!

 

The Championships will be held March 19th – 22nd  2015, and will include up to 70 teams playing out of the 3 Newmarket Arenas (The Magna Centre, The Ray Twinney Complex and Hollingsworth). 

 

This tournament will bring teams to Newmarket from all over Ontario and is a huge opportunity to show off our town and association to all that attend.  It will allow us to showcase the fantastic sport of ringette and raise our profile within our community.  In turn, the competition and the ringette will be of the highest quality, and will be a “must-see” as some of the teams will be vying for the right to represent Ontario at the Eastern Canadian Championships.  A win-win for all!

 

Needless to say hosting this event will require LOTS of volunteers not only at the actual event, but throughout the upcoming year.  More information about our Provincial Tournament Committee will be coming out soon.  Please think about how you can help make this event a HUGE success.

 

Additional information will be coming soon.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Shawn Linton @ shawnlinton777@gmail.com.

 

Go Rays Go!!!

 

Shawn Linton

President, Newmarket Ringette Association

 

SOME IMMEDIATE QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE

 

Will we still have our annual Ignite the Ice Tournament?

YES, we will still host our annual tournament.  Of course this means there is lots of work ahead, and we will need lots of volunteers, (times 2!).  However, being awarded the Provincial “A” Championships is, in part, a testament to the quality and success of our past tournaments and the amazing people in our Association.  We will be busy, but we are confident we can do it!

 

Does this mean NDRA will need to have Provincial teams in all of the age divisions next year?

NO.  As is the case every season, decisions regarding hosting Provincial teams are based on what is best for our players, their development, our teams and the association.   The fact that we are hosting the “A” Provincials will NOT be a factor in these decisions for next season.
