We would love to see you all there and we are going to try something new this year. At the past couple of AGMs we have given a $50 rebate to the first 30 families represented at the meeting and we will be doing the same again this year. In addition to the $50 rebate, we will also be raffling off one free registration for the 2019/20 season. Anyone who attends the meeting is eligible to win.
We have the adjoining meeting room available for parents to drop off their kids so they can attend the AGM. We will have older FVRA athletes there to entertain and supervise.
- We have a number of Executive Board positions up for election this year including:
- Vice President
- Ice Scheduler
- Equipment Manager
- Director of Evaluations
- Director of Officials
- Director of Ways and Means (Fundraising)
If you’re looking for a way to give back to the sport you love please consider taking on one of these roles. It is very rewarding and a great opportunity to support our athletes. You can find information about what each role entails on the FVRA website. It is crucial to our success as an association to have people step into these roles. Our athletes rely on these volunteers to ensure they are able to continue playing the sport they love.
Please let me know if you have questions about any of the roles up for election and I will be happy to answer them.
Doors open at 6:30 with the meeting set to begin at 7:00. We will have light refreshments to enjoy also.
We hope to see you there!!

We are excited to get started and would like to share what the first few weeks will look like. We have our first ice times on Tuesday Sept 4 at the Langley Sportsplex. All athletes will have casual practice like ice sessions with their divisions. (Athletes must have their own practice jerseys) Please check the website for ice times and groups .We are currently working on assigning coaches, preparing for evaluations and planning the Spirit of Winter Tournament.
All players must be registered and have profile, waiver and code of conducts completed.
This season we are collaborating; Ringette BC along with LMRL and all our associations, to ensure the athletes are getting a fair opportunity to be placed on a ringette team where they will thrive and contribute as individuals and teammates alike. Another goal is to have a positive and efficient tiering round with intentions of making a challenging and successful season for all teams in the Lower Mainland League. We have created a package to assist with organizing the evaluations and to ensure consistent procedures across the lower mainland. We ask that each association communicates frequently throughout the process with each other as we will have third party (the BC NRL Thunder) evaluators to help us be unbiased and accurate with our findings. Each division will have a minimum of 3 evaluations – all athletes should attend all ice times which will include Skating skills, Ringette skills and a game (possibly 2 games if required). Each athlete will earn an ordinal and teams will be formed with this information. Tiered divisions are encouraged to form teams with athletes who have the most alike ordinals and not on numbers of registered participants. Non-tiered divisions are to create teams where the combined team ordinals are most alike. The league wants to have exciting and challenging games and with this process we are expecting to achieve this goal.
U12 and U14 athletes will be notified which evaluation group (G1 or G2) they will be placed in at their first ice time on Sept 4th.
Please be sure to sign in at every ice time. We will have a table set up at the rink, this is important to trace accurate information. Teams will be officially formed by Sept 23,2018 and teams will commence their season.
NOTE: Fraser Valley Ringette has an expectation that all players will attend all evaluation ice times; this is to ensure a fair and objective process. If your athlete is unable to attend due to extenuating circumstances, Please contact the Director of Evaluations by email : email@example.com
