A/AA League

The 04-05 season of the A/AA League is well under way, with a total of 27 Teams participating.

(9 Provincial Petites, 5 Tween A, 2 Tween AA, 3 Junior A, 2 Junior AA, 4 Belle A, 1 Belle AA and 1 Open A). The League now has a full complement of Volunteers to help run the League. Each Division has a convener. Thanks to everyone for helping out.

A lot of information about the League can be viewed on the Website, wrra.ca. Scores are being posted as they come in and the Standings are being kept up to date. Thanks goes out to Keith for this.

Just a reminder, that the aim of the League is to promote and develop the "A/AA" game of Ringette in Western Region as well as foster good sportsmanship and fair play.

Please, spread the word, give your coaches all the information they need. If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to contact either Janet or myself.
