Chatham Thunder Ringette Night
Date: January 18th, 12:00 am
The Chatham Junior Maroons’ game this Sunday, January 18th against the Sarnia Legionnaires is “Chatham Thunder Ringette Night”!
All Chatham Ringette Association players who wear their Team jerseys will be admitted to the game free of charge.
During the 1st intermission, Maroons fans will get to see a ringette exhibition by members of the Chatham Ringette Association. Ringette is a Canadian game that was first introduced in 1963 in North Bay, Ontario. Ringette is a fast-paced team sport on ice in which players use a straight stick to pass, carry, and shoot a rubber ring to score goals.
For ten years, play centered in Ontario and Quebec, however the sport quickly spread across Canada and is now played in all ten provinces and the Northwest Territories.
In fact, the sport has become one of Canada’s favourite activities for females, with over 50,000 participants, including players, coaches, officials and volunteers, across Canada – a remarkable growth rate for such a young sport.
“Ringette has been part of our Community for over 35 years and is still going strong today” said Doug Deneau, President of the Chatham Ringette Association.
