This week, Ringette Ontario would like to recognize the Tillsonburg U8 team as Team of the Week.
This team started their season with only eight players! Each player often played each position (except for goalie) during each game! That is no easy feat for a team made up of 5-8 year olds! Not only are their physical skills developing but they are learning a more important part of the game, sportsmanship and how to work as a team. A beautiful example of this came after their final tournament game last weekend. Our coaches handout a player of the game jersey to a player to proudly wear at the next practice. The recipient of the Jersey looked at a teammate who had not been awarded the jersey yet and handed it to her and told her she deserved the jersey! Good sportsmanship makes great athletes!
Ringette Ontario would like to commend these players, coaches and parents for their wonderful efforts and great sportsmanship this season and for serving as great role models! Continue to Own The Rink!
