I was just wanting to send out a preliminary notice of board member changes as well to keep you informed of any news regarding COVID-19 and our return to play for the 2020/2021 Ringette season. We are still awaiting the Return to Play plan from Ringette BC, as are all of the leagues within our province. In the interim, we are working behind the scenes with the arenas and board members to have as much of a battle plan as possible so that when we do get the guidelines from Ringette BC we can move forward. We will not inundate you with emails, but rather will be posting any and all updates/news via our social platforms and association webpage. Please, if you’ve not already done so, fill out the Association Survey to help with us gathering information.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sincerely, Nicole Burdes
Hi everyone. As you are all aware, registration for the upcoming ringette season is delayed until we have the green light from RingetteBC and the provincial health authorities. In order to do some preliminary planning however, please take a few moments to complete the following survey. Click here: Survey Link
In the words of Bonnie Henry, be calm, be kind, be safe.
Hi everyone. This is just a quick note to let you know that although we normally have our registration open by now, we are awaiting news from the BC public health officials before opening up for next season. You can check back here for updates, and once we have any information to share you can expect an email in your inbox if you subscribe to the Fraser Valley Ringette news bulletins. I hope you are all staying healthy and safe.
Hello Fraser Valley families…
Fraser Valley Ringette is supportive of the decisions to suspend any ringette-related activities and ensuring we are doing our part to #flattenthecurve.
While the timing is unfortunate with the cancellation of events like provincial championships, Westerns and CRCs, we have had a terrific season of competition and sportsmanship.
Our FVRA AGM is currently scheduled for April 14th and we have not yet made any decisions about postponement or to move forward as planned. I will keep everyone posted with updates as they arise and I hope to have as many of you as possible participate in the AGM when the time comes.
I wish you all the best as we as a community navigate these uncharted waters.
Fraser Valley Ringette Association
Hi all…The new practice schedules are here:
I hope everyone is having a terrific holiday season!
Happy New Year!!!!
