Ringette BC Update – 2021/2022 Ringette Season
Earlier this year, the Ringette BC Board of Directors established a Review Committee whose mandate was to provide an objective review of Ringette BC’s response to COVID-19 and to provide recommendations on whether Ringette BC’s 2019-2023 Strategic Plan remains relevant in a post COVID-19 world. The Committee conducted research, reviewed the Strategic Plan, interviewed ringette administrations at the Provincial and National level while considering multiple factors and perspectives. Ringette BC’s Board of Directors recently adopted a report from the Strategic Planning Committee with recommendations for implementation based on the work of the Review Committee.
Zone U16 and U19 Teams
At the July 12, 2021 Board Meeting, the Ringette BC Board of Directors approved a number of recommendations including one that would permit Zone U16 and Zone U19 to remain as mixed gender divisions for the 2021-2022 ringette season. The Zone Division Guidelines and Athlete Experience Report outline that Zone Division teams are to be male -only and female-only. Ringette BC continues to be committed to increasing male participation and in developing a male athlete participation pathway. The Head Coach Selection process for Zone U16 and U19 Divisions is currently underway. Stay tuned for further information in the coming weeks. Further recommendations from the Strategic Plan Review will be shared as the information becomes available. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out. Sincerely, Nicole Robb, Executive Director, Ringette BC
