Fundraising for the U19A Team!

On March 18, 2018, the West Ferris Ringette U19A team won a silver medal and the Sportsmanship award at the Ontario Provincial Championships. This earned them a wild card spot in the Eastern Ringette Championships held in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia from April 18 to 22.

For the first time in North Bay history, a team is going to the Eastern Ringette Championships! The team has been together for a long time; have worked hard and played hard together.  The girls feel incredibly honoured and excited to represent the birthplace of ringette and are looking forward to this once in a lifetime opportunity. 

Let’s all help them get there!!

This dynamic team has a number of fundraising efforts underway. Here are some that WFRA members, friends and family can be part of to help send the team East:
