We’re proud of our Team Canada Junior and Senior Ringette Teams, especially Jennica Murray, Rachel Ung, Madison Bonsel, Shaundra Bruvall and former Calgary AA/RATHlete Christianne Varty.
Travelling for training camps is complete; our athletes continue their weekly training locally, and hit the ice playing with the Calgary RATH (Christianne plays with the NRL Waterloo Wildfire).
Check back for updates, as they gear up to compete in the upcoming World Ringette Championships (WRCs) on November 27-December 3, 2017, in Mississauga, Ontario. Last year, the WRCs took place in Helsinki, Finland.

We’re AA Ringette, and we thrive on competition. But our season-opening exhibition series was a great opportunity to demonstrate that we’re all Friends First in support of sister teams, opponents, and our community that brings it all together.
Whether it’s the traditional post-game hand shake or Edmonton Elite’s beautiful support of our lost member, Jenna, we appreciate our chance to play and build friendships while playing the fastest game on ice.
Please see our Friends First page throughout the season for info, photos and updates.

The march is on to upcoming 2017 World Ringette Championships in Mississauga, ON from November 27 to December 3. Team Canada has organized a 5K Run/Walk fundraiser to be held in the fall at locations across Canada. In Calgary, this event will be held on October 7, 2017. All funds raised will go to National Team athletes to help offset the costs.
Help support our Senior and Junior National Team athletes representing Canada at the Worlds: Shaundra Bruvall, Madison Bonsel, Rachel Ung and Jennica Murray!
It’s a great opportunity for Calgary AA and our ringette community to come together to celebrate being part of the awesome sport we all love. We’re hoping that local ringette associations will encourage all players, their parents, siblings and friends to attend. Coaches can use it as a team building event!
The Running Room is helping to facilitate the success of the Calgary Run. Registration will take place online through the Running Room website:
- Register here to take part in the Road to Worlds on Oct 7
