Hope everyone is staying well. I have a few things I wanted to share with all SMRA families.
Refunds & Jerseys
The Executive met on Monday January 18, 2021 to discuss refund payments and game jersey collection. Once the lockdown and stay at home order has been lifted, a date will be set for the return of home and away game jerseys and pick up of refund cheques in the amount of the second payment at the PRC. Given the current provincial restriction, we are looking at a date in mid February. If you require alternate arrangements, please reach out to Erin or myself via email.
Cathy Hutton and Rebecca Myers have been working hard on a new fundraiser for SMRA at Joe’s Diner on Sunday February 14, 2021. Enjoy chicken parmesan with pasta, Caesar salad and garlic bread. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by calling Joes Diner at 226-661-7799 or Cathy Hutton 519-949-2344. This event will replace Wing Night this year.
We have not given up on the chance of returning to the ice before fall of 2021. Focused on the positive possibility, a “Springette” sub committee has been formed to explore our options. We will keep you posted on what format this may take as the committee starts working on it. To be ready and in shape for a return to ice, we will be sharing opportunities that Ringette Ontario (RO) creates. Currently, they have launched an engaging Athlete Webinar aimed at helping ringette players from all levels learn and develop their skills. These webinars led by sports professionals and veteran ringette players. Workshops will cover topics such as mental health, communication and team building, nutrition and ringette pathways. There will also be sessions that get you moving with a focus on mobility basics and yoga! Athletes interested in participating in this program must meet and complete the following criteria and must register for the series:
Interested individuals should submit their registration forms to Ringette Ontario by January 22nd. Please note that the athlete webinar series will begin on January 28th, 2021, with a majority of the sessions taking place on Thursdays. If you have any questions about the program or the registration process, please contact Karla Xavier (Technical Director) at email@example.com
Another option are the weekly workouts posted on the RO YouTube channel. This week’s workout uses a player’s ringette gear. Might be a good chance to air it out.
I think that is all for now. We will be in touch once the lockdown lifts with a date for jersey returns and refund pick ups, which I hope is sooner rather then later.
Thank you for your continued support and commitment to SMRA.
Acting President SMRA
