U8-Waterfall “Rockets” Give Back

Challenge accepted! After a great example set by WORA’s U16A squad, the U8-Waterfall Rockets decided to follow suit.

The girls were sad to have their season end so abruptly and to have to postpone year end banquets and team parties. But when they heard about the food bank donation idea, they unanimously decided that this was what they wanted to do. They had $300 left in the team budget and decided to donate it to the Kanata Food Cupboard. They may only be 6, 7 and a couple of 8 year olds, but they understand that this is something good they can do in this time of crisis.

Again, all kudos to the U16 girls! Now who’s next?!! 🚀

U16A Food Bank Challenge

Sharing a challenge from our U16A team!

The girls were in shock realizing provincials were over. However they turned a negative into a positive and donated $200 of remaining team funds to the Stittsville Food Bank. The Food Bank is in desperate need right now with the increased use due to shutdowns/layoffs. We would love to challenge all the teams to match or donate any small amount.  We can all help somehow.

Effective immediately, as per Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health recommendation to suspend all public gatherings over 250 people. This means all Ringette Ontario activities, AA, A and U12 provincials, all regional tournaments including OAIC and league games have been suspended until further notice.

This includes the WORA Bunnies program for this coming weekend and all WORA-sanctioned activities.  Our year end banquets will be postponed to a later date. Details about the spring competitive tryouts will be sent out at a later date.

Ringette Ontario will continue to monitor this fluid and ever changing situation. Membership updates will be provided regularly. WORA will continue to act in accordance with the direction from Ringette Ontario and public health authorities.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this tumultuous and rapidly changing situation.
