The 2016/17 WORA JAA team defined itself through hard work, commitment and a ferocious sense of togetherness that kept them laughing from the start of the year to the end. Enduring a tough season that saw a never-ending stream of personal hardships, the girls exhibited dogged determination on the ice. Regardless of the score, the cheers from the bench kept the team engaged on the ice and this ‘never quit’ attitude is a trait that will serve them all well beyond their ringette careers. This season was highlighted by memories, new friends, changing in the car to get to the rink on time, togetherness at the hotels, minute-to-win-it, apple dip and screeching at movies during provincials. These are some of the things that this team will remember beyond this season.
