Whitby Ringette Bulletin #1
Submitted By James Main on Saturday, March 21, 2020
Dear Parents and Players,

Following our announcement last week regarding the impact the COVID-19 situation has had on the operations of Whitby Ringette, we would like to provide some relevant updates and guidance as it becomes available.

1. Jersey return
We are asking managers and coaches to work with their players to coordinate the return of jerseys as soon as things return to normal. As you know these are provided by the association and will be needed again for next season’s teams. Our equipment manager will be in touch with managers with drop off details when it is safe to do so.

2. Gala is canceled
As was mentioned in the previous bulletin, this was likely. With the season wrapping up before we had a chance to sell tickets, we have decided not to proceed with the planned season ending banquet.

3. The AGM is a go
At this point we are anticipating that we will hold our AGM as normal. The event is planned for May and there are a number of board positions available. We hope that many of our player’s parents who have joined in the last two or three years would be interested on helping run the organization.

4. Tryouts
As you may have heard, hockey has moved tryouts to the fall. As of writing, this decision has yet to be made for ringette. We are hoping to hold the original timing in the spring, but will follow the recommendations of Ringette Ontario if and when they are communicated.

5. Gym Ringette
Did you know that Whitby Ringette is running another fun season of Gym Ringette this summer for players aged from 4 to 10? This is still going ahead and you can find out more on p.40 of the Town of Whitby activity guide.
