Congratulations Leigh and Jenna!
Awarded annually at our year-end banquet, the Calgary AA Ringette Service Award honours outstanding volunteer commitment. Our 2017 recipients are Leigh and Jenna Sauer—in recognition of their ongoing coaching dedication to our program. Leigh has coached our players at the U14, U16 and U19 levels (this year coaching both U14 and U19). This year, Jenna was an U14 assistant coach with Leigh.
Despite a cancer diagnosis for Jenna last season, Leigh has continued his commitment to coaching U19 last year and again this season. Whenever at all physically possible, Jenna has been on the ice and on the bench with her U14’s, joining them in Winnipeg and helping to coach them to a Gold Medal win. Leigh and Jenna were also able to support our U19 team at Nationals, who came away with a Bronze Medal.
Their commitment to Calgary AA Ringette has been an inspiration to us all. They come to the rink with a positive attitude and a smile, and a love for the game that they share with their players and teammates.
Thank you, Leigh and Jenna, for your dedication and support!
