Summer 2018 Ringette Skills Development Camps will be held on the following dates and locations:
August 13 - 17 at the Leduc Recreation Centre
August 20 - 24 at Servus Place in St. Albert
August 27 - 31 at Millennium Place in Sherwood Park
All camps are five full days in duration, 9 am - 4 pm, daily.
Summer Ringette Skills Development Camps are for U-10 through U-16 aged players. Each age group is limited to 32 participants (30 skaters & 2 goalies) to ensure a very favorable student/instructor ratio, which is the hallmark of our Summer Ringette camps.
It is important to note that Summer Ringette Skills Development Camps are not designed, nor intended, to be solely conditioning camps. While a high activity level is present in many areas of the camps, the main focus is to develop and improve ringette skills, as well as contribute to the overall development of the athlete.
The power skating component of the camps will be taught by Donna Stewart, who is an acknowledged expert with more than 30 years of power skating experience.
All other areas of the camps will be taught by members of the four time Canadian National Champion University Ringette Team. With an average of 15 years of playing experience, summer camp instructors are some of the most skilled university ringette players in Canada today and are equipped with a wealth of ringette knowledge that will undoubtedly improve any young player's ringette skills. As well, University Ringette players are great role models for your daughter, demonstrating first hand that excellence in athletics and academics can go hand in hand.
All University Ringette Team members are full time students at one of the following universities: MacEwan, Alberta, Concordia or NAIT. Ringette scholarships, totalling $50,000 annually, are available exclusively to members of the University Ringette Team as they pursue excellence in academics and ringette.
The University Ringette team's goalie will be on hand at the camps to work with any individuals wishing to receive goaltending instruction. Only 2 registrations per age group will be accepted for this specialized area.
Ringette Skills Development Summer Camps are made possible through the financial and managerial support of the Friends of Ringette Society.
