Team Of The Month


Ringette Ontario - Team of The Month

Featured Team - January 2024

 

This month, Ringette Ontario would like to recognize an extraordinary team for our January ’ Team of the Month’ feature: the Oshawa Storm Ringette Association U12A

 

"Many of these girls have been together as a team since U8, under the coaching of Sharolyn Wouters-LaRush. A skilled and hard-working group of girls, they have also proved themselves determined and resilient on the ice in the challenges they have encountered as a team. As young U8 competitors looking forward to team play and tournaments away, this group finished their first-ever ringette tournament in Niagara Falls the weekend before the COVID outbreak and spent the next two years learning the game, socially distanced and in modified play, with no away tournaments. Last year, as a young team with eight minors and four double-minors, they proved a strong force in the U12A division but were always shy of defeating the league's top-seeded teams or making a final at a tournament. This year, the team’s hard work has finally paid off. To date, the team has lost only one game in league play and has earned a gold medal finish at the Autumn Storm Ringette Tournament in October, a silver medal at the Nepean Ringette Invitational Tournament in November and a semi-final appearance at the Pierrefonds Ringette Tournament in Quebec. Winning has never been the focus of this team. Still, in striving to improve and succeed through all sorts of challenges, these girls have all been models of dedication, determination, resilience, and positive play. They put relationships first in building community both within their team and in the Oshawa community, participating in many activities together, but also giving back to the greater community by making Christmas ornaments for seniors, running a Christmas toy drive for Bethesda House, working small jobs to buy needed items to support the clients of Simcoe-Hall Settlement House and helping to pack boxes for the needy at their facility and creating positive posters for the rink for Bell Let’s Talk Day. These girls and their coaching staff deserve recognition. They are an incredible public face for the sport of Ringette, and I hope you will agree to honour them as Ringette Ontario’s January Team of the Month."
