Hello Waterloo Ringette !
Please see the attached Update from Ringette Ontario - Please see the link for the complete update from RO
Canadian National Ringette Championships - Teams are preparing for the Canadian Championships in Calgary and Eastern Championships in Nova Scotia. Good luck to all coaches and athletes who will be representing RO!
Vaccination Mandate - We want to remind everyone that COVID-19 safety precautions are important to keep our players in the game. We strongly recommend masking for all ringette participants (athletes, coaches, officials etc.) while in shared spaces and participating in off-ice ringette activities. COVID-19 is still with us, and we must remain vigilant with our safety protocols. Our mandatory vaccination policy will remain in place until the end of the 2021/2022 season, June 30, 2022. The Board will revisit the policy prior to the opening of registration for the 2022/2023 season on July 1, 2022
Season Plan - 2022/2023 - Ontario Winter Games has been rescheduled to February 2023 so we will be running a high performance (AAA) along with our Team Ontario program this coming season. Our intention is to provide a guideline document over the next couple of months so associations can develop their season plans during the spring and early summer.
Ministry Funding for Sport Associations Ringette Ontario - as the Provincial Sport Organizations (PSO) has been advised that we will receive funding from the province to both support our local associations and the Quest for Gold program, which focusses on high-performance sport development (AAA)
Executive Director Search We are progressing well in our search for a new Executive Director for Ringette Ontario. The position was posted for several weeks in the new year and gained a lot of attention. We are now moving into the interview stage and hope to announce a new ED leader by the end of April.
Strategic Planning-A major initiative for the Board this year is the revisiting our strategic plan, and we have partnered with MacPhie Consulting for support. Our current plan concludes this year and given the vast amount of change experienced over the past two seasons it is critical we develop a bold vision for RO and establish a plan to achieve our goals for the next 5 years
