Ringette BC Update for Leagues and Associations

Aug. 14, 2022

Good Evening, 

I hope everyone is enjoying the last couple of weeks of August before September comes and the ringette season gets underway once more. 

I wanted to provide a brief update to all of the Association and League Presidents as this is my last day with Ringette BC before starting my parental leave. I will be away for a year; however, the team that is in place will do their very best to continue to provide to you the services and programs that you have come to expect from Ringette BC. This will hopefully be a more standard ringette season than we have had over the last two years or so and this team is ready to support the Associations in hosting ringette this season. If there are any outstanding items that I have not yet had a chance to get to please follow up with Rick and my apologies for not following up with those items. 

Staffing Update:

- Executive Director 

Rick Benson will be fully stepping into my position on Monday, August 15. Rick will be using the title of Sports Operations Manager and will be covering the areas of the Executive Director. Many of you met Rick in person at the Ringette BC Conference and General Meeting in June and he has been working with Ringette BC for a couple of months to help prepare for the transition.
