2021 Ringette Goalie Weekend Camps
We are excited to be able to offer a few different options for your goalies to get back on the ice this August prior to tryouts.
1. Saturday August 21, 2021
Since AA tryouts in Alberta start around the August 28 weekend, we are offering a 1 day camp on Saturday August 21 at Kinsmen Arena on the south side of Edmonton. This full day will include 2 ice times (movement and positional for the first ice time, shooters for the second ice time), plus a goalie lecture, a goalie off-ice session and will also cover the pre-ice warm up and post-ice cool downs too.
This Sat Aug 21 camp is geared towards goalies that will be trying out for AA teams and will be a bit more advanced, featuring most of our senior instructors plus Heather and I. There will be a max of 15 goalies x 2 groups (30 goalies total). Cost for this camp will be $200 + GST, and will include a 5-Count on-ice jersey.
This Aug 21, 2021 camp is half sold out!
2. Saturday August 28, 2021
The second offering is our regular weekend camp, however we were only able to secure ice for 1 day instead of our typical 2 day camp, so we will be holding this camp on Saturday August 28 at Meadows on the southeast side of Edmonton. Same as above, this full day will include 2 ice times (movement and positional for the first ice time, shooters for the second ice time), plus a goalie lecture, a goalie off-ice session and will also cover the pre-ice warm up and post-ice cool downs too.
This Sat Aug 28 camp is for all skill levels and ages, and we will group and plan for the goalies to fit their skill levels. There will be a max of 15 goalies x 3 groups (45 goalies total). Cost for this camp will be $200 + GST, and will include a 5-Count on-ice jersey.
This Aug 28 camp is half sold out!
Slightly different offerings this year as things have been quite different and tricky to reserve etc., but doing what we can to create some good programming to get your goalies back on the ice in a safe and fun manner!

The New Keely Ringette Goalie Trapper - IT'S READY FOR ORDERING!!!
Spread the word. The new Keely Ringette Goalie Trapper by McKenney is now ready for ordering.
It has several new and Ringette specific details that make this Ringette Goalie Trapper so very helpful for younger all the way up to our most elite Ringette goalies.

5-Count Has Ice for Ringette Goalies in Edmonton this Fall 2019 and Winter 2020!
5-Count has once again booked our own ice times just for Ringette goalies. There are 7 Wednesday nights at Meadows in Edmonton and we are looking into some nights in St Albert.
Wednesday nights at Meadows will be for 1.25 hours (7:45-9:00) and will consist of a progressing ice plan for 7 Wednesdays from Oct to Feb.
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). We sold out last year so contact us soon if you are interested.
Priority will be given to those who can commit to all dates at the arena 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 dates before the first ice time 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.
