Preparing for and participating in the Alberta Games will challenge you to be your best and will also be some of the most fun you’ll have in sport. You’ll experience the challenge of the evaluation process for your zone team and, if you’re selected, you will experience an absolutely incredible multi-sport environment that will bring together nearly 3,000 athletes, coaches and officials from across the province to take part in 19 different sports.
Goals of Alberta Games
- Provide a competitive opportunity for developing athletes
- Assist athletes who have the interest and ability to work toward their maximum potential.
- Provide competition that will serve the developmental needs for each sport throughout Alberta.
Selection Process & Team Formation
Details coming soon!
Ringette Alberta does not support the manipulation of the team formation within zones and will argue doing so violates Ringette Alberta’s Code of Conduct policy. All eligible players need to be provided the opportunity to participate. We would be highly disappointed if a local association/club coach, for example, discouraged their athletes from participating in the Games. The Alberta Winter Games offers once in a lifetime developmental (skills and life) experience. Therefore, each zone should be supporting their athletes to compete at the Games from the club and local association level. It is a great privilege to participate in the Alberta Winter Games, and Ringette Alberta encourages all athletes in their pursuit.
Following athlete selection, teams may have a few training opportunities, and all teams will have the same amount of time together prior to the Games. Cost will be kept as low as possible.
Ringette Alberta would like to thank the Alberta Sport Connection for their ongoing financial support and commitment to the Alberta Games.
Each Coaching Staff will be comprised of a four coaches, of which a minimum of two must be female. Due to the age and level of competition, all coaches will be required to Competition Introduction Certified by December 15th of the Games year.
Coaching applications to be available soon!
All Ringette Alberta registered athletes are eligible to compete. The age group for the 2024 AWG will be determined shortly.
