This week, Ringette Ontario would like to recognize the Burlington Blast U10 team as Team of the Week. This nomination was submitted by a spectator, Michelle, who saw the team Owning The Rink and just had to share it with us.
Burlington Blast U10
This past weekend the Barrie U14A girls played their hearts out in the Burlington tournament and after another tough loss they came off the ice to the Burlington U10 Costigan team doing this.
I heard one of the girls call out to her teammates “sticks up and show them our support” I am not sure if they were encouraged by a parent or not but I think these young players deserve recognition for their actions. They may not even know how much that little encouragement meant to the players or the parents but I was almost in tears as I have watched the Barrie girls battle game after game with their losses and scoreboard not reflecting the heart that they put into the game and how far they have come from the beginning of the season and these young ladies gave them the drive to get back on the ice for their next game and I think had one of their best games of the season this far!
This is what owning the rink is all about! Showing great sportsmanship, being supportive of others and always putting in your best effort. We are proud to have players like this be part of our organization!
Ringette Ontario would like to commend these players, coaches and parents for their wonderful efforts this season and for serving as great role models! We’d also like to commend the Barrie U14A team for their efforts this season. Continue to Own The Rink!
