Thank you Officials

Throughout the season, our officials in the Province have been working hard to get to numerous games in leagues, tournaments, Playdowns, Provincials, Westerns, and Nationals. Ringette Alberta would like to thank all those officials for all their hard work!

For Provincials, Association Referee-in-Chiefs were asked to provide names of officials to acknowledge their hard work and skill, this resulted in officials then being selected for 13 Provincial Championships. Ringette Alberta would like to thank the following for their work at these Championships, and congratulate them on their development and selection at these events.
