Ringette Alberta Coach of the Year!!
The Coach of the Year award goes to a coach who promotes a positive public image for coaching in the sport, shows respect to officials, opponents, players and parents, and reinforces a philosophy of fair play.
Ringette Alberta is very proud to award our 2020 Coach of the Year to Laurie Reeve from Zone 2 AA. Laurie has years of ringette experience as a player, a parent, and as a coach. Her experience as an athlete allows her to understand the strategies and intricacies, and the pressures that can come with being a young female athlete. She has the ability to adapt her teaching and coaching methods according to her players abilities and strengths. Laurie constantly looks for opportunities to improve the team and ensure her players are engaged and ready for the challenges ahead.
Ringette Alberta received numerous glowing letters of support of Laurie’s nomination from Players and Parents. She is calm, fair, supportive and respectful on and off the bench. Laurie motivates and empowers all of them to be the best team possible.
Congratulations Laurie Reeve!
The Zone 2 U16 AA Blaze team had an amazing year both on and off the ice. The team had the opportunity to participate in cupcake and gingerbread challenges, blanket making, fun party games, starting a sing along at 7 am during Provincials and attend a tournament in Guelph, Ontario.
While in Guelph, the girls got the chance to be one of the first groups to attend the new Niagara Falls exhibit, visit a butterfly conservatory and explore all that the Niagara Falls area has to offer. They also were also lucky enough to have the opportunity to learn how to fence at McMaster University by an Olympic level coach.
The amazing thing about this group of girls was that no matter what activity, dryland, mental training, practice or game that they attended, they always came with a smile and were ready to have fun.
It was a pleasure to be part of such a fun, dedicated and hardworking group of girls! They embodied and understood the true meaning of the word TEAM which contributed to their success as U16AA Provincial Champions!
