Two Forest Xtreme Ringette teams will represent Ontario at the 2023 Eastern Canadian Ringette Championships (ECRC) in Moncton, NB., next month.
Both the Under-16 ‘A’ and Under-19 ‘A’ teams won gold at the Ringette Ontario Provincial tournament in Mississauga earlier this month, earning their tickets to the championships being held April 20-23.
“Our Under-19 A-level (U19A) and our Under-16 A-level (U16A) teams competed against the strongest teams in the province and ultimately each team demonstrated their passion and commitment for the sport of ringette in their final gold medal games,” said Shae Stanbra, president, Forest Xtreme Ringette Association. “We are incredibly proud of their accomplishments.”
Forest Xtreme Ringette has previously competed in the ECRC tournament; in 2019 as the U19A Team Ontario, and as recently as 2022 as the U16A ‘wild card’ team.
“For both the U19A and the U16A teams to play for Team Ontario to be from the same community after competing against centres of all sizes across the province is remarkable,” Stanbra added.
