Chilliwack Ringette Association invites youth to ‘Come Try Ringette’ event

The CRA is a fast-growing youth sport in Chilliwack with membership now topping 60.

The Chilliwack Ringette Association is hosting their annual ‘Come Try Ringette’ event May 25, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Twin Rinks.

Skate and equipment rentals are free for youths ages 5-14. Participants learn the basics of the sport in a fun and inclusive environment.

Ringette is a fairly recent addition to Chilliwack’s winter sport scene.

Inaugurated in 2016, the association has since grown to include over 60 athletes competing in four divisions. This includes a children’s ringette program focusing on youth aged 5-10, minor programs for 10-14 year olds, and an adult team (18+).

The association has also trained new coaches and officials, and has developed a strong executive dedicated to the development of the sport in the eastern Fraser Valley in a territory covering Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Hope.

Registration is required for this event by visiting cometryringette.ca/event/chilliwack-come-try-ringette-may-25th/

“2019 is an exciting year for ringette in British Columbia because the Lower Mainland Ringette League is hosting the 2019 World Ringette Championships in Burnaby, Nov 25 to Dec. 2,” said CRA president and former national ringette team athlete Shannon Bettles. “The World Ringette Championships will showcase the world’s best ringette teams on one stage. Our youngest athletes will benefit from watching and interacting with their sporting role models leading up to and during the event.”
