5-Count Has Ice for Ringette Goalies in Edmonton this Fall 2016!
5-Count has finally booked our own ice times just for Ringette goalies. The plan is to have 3 times (one a month) before Christmas with a progressing set of skills and drills on Tues Oct 25, Tues Nov 8 and Tues Dec 6 in St. Albert.
We have 2 ice times back to back each night. The younger group (U14 and under) will be on the ice from 6:00-7:05 and the older group will be on the ice from 7:10-8:15.
Email us if you are interested and reserve your spot for your Ringette goalie as we are accepting just 9 goalies per ice slot (18 total each night).
Priority will be given to those who can commit to all 3 dates so that we can progress with our drills each time.
Prices will be $80 per ice time, or if you confirm and pay for all 3 dates before Oct 15 you will get a discount rate of $75 per ice time - plus GST.
Please share this with any goalie parents, teams and coaches you can.
Contact us with any specific questions.
5-Count Scholarships for Ringette Goalies
We've awarded the two 2015-16 5-Count Ringette Goalie Scholarships. Congratulations to Ellen Hoban of Calgary and Sarah MacDonald of Langley, BC!
Ellen had a great idea to use the prize money to further develop younger goalies in the Calgary area, and Sarah was interested in using the prize money to create a program to teach local kids more about the sport of Ringette and Ringette goalies. Best of luck to both of these great ideas.
