RAB CUP 2023

The Ringette Alberta Cup program is designed to further enhance the development of Athletes and Coaches.  Those who attend will participate in a well-organized and equitable skill development camp with the intent to prepare for Ringette Canada Junior National Team, Alberta Winter Games and/or Canada Winter Games.

This is an excellent learning opportunity for all participants, and a chance to be a part of a truly enjoyable event.  Athletes are given the opportunity to receive a high level of instruction and skill/fitness assessment.  The participants will meet other athletes from all over the Province and learn about the different ways they can work, both on and off the ice, to improve their game.

The Ringette Alberta Camp will be used to select eligible athletes for the Ringette Canada U17 La Releve camp.  La Releve serves as an entry point into the High Performance pathway for athletes.

The 2023 camp is open to all Athletes born 2005 – 2008.

Dates: April 29th & 30th, 2023

Location:  SLS Centre, 800 Griffin Road E, Cochrane AB  T4C 2B8

Cost: $210.00

Registration opens February 1st!  Register here

TEAMS – updated April 20.

Teams are made with the intent of balancing them as much as possible. Athletes will receive equal playing time, but may need to try a different position throughout the weekend to accommodate others’ preferences. Think of this as an excellent, low-stakes environment in which to learn new skills!

Coaches have not yet been assigned to teams, but an email about that will be sent out in the next week or so.

COACHES! There are two different coaching opportunities for which we need volunteers! Please note the benefits of participating, which include notes about Alberta Winter Games.
  1. Team Coaches:
    • Responsibilities: you will help run the on-ice practice. We will have lead instructors who will plan and run the ice time, but we will need help from others to direct traffic and provide additional feedback to athletes. You would also need to create a lineup and run the bench during the games. If you are not entirely confident in this, we can provide some support. Mentor coaches may be available throughout the weekend to answer questions and have discussions about strategy and tactics. You may participate in the off-ice activities if you wish, but that is not required.
    • Qualifications: Ideally you are coaching U12A or higher as you will likely get more out of this experience if you are at least Competition Introduction Trained, but we will accept coaches with any level of training/interest.
    • Benefits: Receive PD points, exposure to high level athletes and coaches, development opportunity, and pad your coaching resume to give you a leg up when applying for a coaching position next fall, including Alberta Winter Games teams.
  2. Scouting/Evaluating:
    • Description/Responsibilities: Chris Belan, head scout for Team Canada, will be on hand to teach you about the art of evaluating and scouting. You will look at video, case studies, and then scout during the team games. You will compare notes and fine tune your approach. There will likely be a pre-weekend meeting about a week prior to go through some things so everyone is better prepared when the time comes.
    • Qualifications: For this role you must be Competition Introduction Trained or higher.
    • Benefits: Receive PD points, learn a valuable skill for team selection, development opportunity, be qualified to do evaluations for Alberta Winter Games athlete identification in the future.

Unfortunately you can only do one of these options, not both, as they overlap considerably.

You do not need to have a child attending in order to participate, and if you do have a child participating, you can request to be assigned to your child’s team or not. You do not have to be available for the entire weekend to participate, so indicate your availability in the Google Form.
