Remembering Ralph Bell


To our coach,

You were more than just the coach of WAM!, you were the heart and soul of our team, the driving force of our WAMily. You stepped up to coach us when no one else would, and you made us into the team we are today. Your ability to see the potential in your athletes and make them believe in themselves is what has made WAM! such a force for the past 3.5 years. There is a reason why you picked every one of us to be on your team and there is not a girl who puts on the W that you didn’t believe in.

Thank you for being patient with us, for telling us to expect more from ourselves, for pushing us to become the athletes and people that we are today. Thank you for always providing us with a solid foundation to build from and never putting a ceiling on what we can accomplish. Thank you for reminding us to have fun when we get too competitive. Thank you for helping us all find our place on the WAM!. Thank you for spending most of your spare time with 17 ridiculously passionate, sometimes opinionated, and very determined young ladies (that in itself deserves an award). But most of all thank you for being the prime example of what it means to NEVER NEVER GIVE UP.

Shortly after you were diagnosed with cancer, you rode a train from Edmonton, Alberta to London, Ontario so you could coach your team at Nationals. When one treatment wouldn’t work, you moved on to the next. Even throughout your treatments, you came to the rink. You came to practice, you bundled up for games, you even trusted us to lift you on to the ice safely with your wheelchair (Jam taking you for a skate and spinning you around was beyond our control). Ralph, you have been with us every step of the way even when you were battling the fight of your life. We know you’ll still be watching us every time we step on the ice, we promise to tell Jam to put her contact in before games, to tell Brea to stay in her net, and we will try to make sure we hit the net more. This season and every season- we play for you.

Sadness in the Ringette Family

October 21, 2016

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we inform you of the tragedy that occurred earlier this week.  On Tuesday October 18, members of our ringette family, Shaun Bomford, Meghan Bomford and Kelsey Nelson were involved in a devastating motor vehicle accident that took Meghan’s life.  Shaun, Meghan’s father, and Kelsey, her teammate, are in hospital.

We ask that you join us in sending out the deepest of condolences to Meghan’s family, and that you keep Shaun and Kelsey in your thoughts as they fight to regain their health.

The Ringette Alberta office has already been fielding inquiries from individuals throughout the province who are looking for ways to help.  Though it saddens us when it happens, we are so proud of our community and how we come together as one during times like these.

At this point in time,  we are directing people to the websites of both the Calgary NW Ringette and Cal-East Ringette Associations, as they have been working together to set up ways to provide support.  There is also information posted for those who are in need of grief counseling.

This weekend, we encourage you to consider having a moment of silence before your games.  Please use this moment to not only think of the Meghan, Kelsey and Shaun, but also the girls’ U19A teammates, their families and friends, and everyone else who has been impacted by this terrible event.

Meghan‘s funeral will be held on Monday October 24th at 2 pm at the Chapel of the Bells, 2720 Centre St N, in Calgary.  Please see the Cal-East website for more details.

Parents, we urge you to hug your children a bit tighter today. Coaches, remind your players how proud of them you are.  Players, let your teammates know how much you appreciate them.  Let’s all honour Meghan’s life by taking the time to remember just how precious our time together really is.
