DRA hosts exhibition game December 27, 2015

December 21, 2015

Dorchester Ringette is excited to announce that we will be hosting the AAA Western Region Team as they match up for an exhibition game against the University of Western Ontario ringette team on Sunday, December 27th beginning at 1:30pm.

Who is the Western Region AAA Team?

These talented girls represent the best U18 players from our Western Region who competed in tryouts this past spring.   Every other year, Western AAA competes against 5 other regions in Ontario (Central, Southern, Ontario United, Eastern and Northeast) in three different tournaments called Challenge Cups.   Challenge Cup #1 and #2 have been played with Western Region winning both tournaments, most recently last weekend in St. Mary’s.   The final Challenge Cup will be held in January 2016 in Kingston.

Local Connection

Although Dorchester doesn’t have any players on this AAA team, we do have an important local connection to this team.  Dorchester Ringette U14A Head Coach, Scott Borland, (back row, far left, in photo) is also an Assistant Coach for this AAA team!

Come Out and Cheer!

We would love to have as many local ringette players and family come out and cheer the AAA team on during this exhibition game.  This game is a great opportunity to watch some fast paced  and skilled ringette and could even make a great team event for those that are around over the Christmas break!

Did we mention that it is FREE? – no cost to anyone, just come and enjoy the game! Bring your noise makers and wear a ringette jersey too!
