EXCITING NEWS FROM YOUR BOARD!
Submitted By Shawn Linton on Thursday, March 6, 2014

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 @ [email protected].

 

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.
