2008 - 2009 Achievements!
At the start of the
season we set three goals for our team. We wanted to
increase the overall skill level of each of our
players, we wanted them to play in an atmosphere
where they would have fun and we wanted to try to
win the Provincial Championships.
We accomplished the last one of our three goals on the
weekend by winning the Tween B Provincial Championships.
Through their hard work, commitment to team practices
and their willingness to learn, our team players have
improved their skills faster than any team we have
worked with before.
In the first half of the season their record was two
wins, eight losses, two ties and they scored an average
of 4.25 goals per game. Our record for the last twelve
games they played is ten wins, two losses and they
scored an average of 8.75 goals per game. At the start
of this season Sarah Henry our goalie, had only three
months goalie experience but her skill progression as a
goalie this year has been spectacular due to her
enormous desire to excel as a goalie. All of our players
have worked hard during practices and games, they take
instruction extremely well, they have very positive
attitudes and they execute our team plays and patterns
in a much disciplined manner.
We want to thank our team parents again for the
fantastic support they have given our team right from
the start of the year and for cheering on our players so
enthusiastically during the Provincial games. This
year’s Panther team is truly a magical team and we have
been very fortunate as coaches to be able to work with
this exceptional group of players and parents. Thank you
for making this year a very special and memorable year
for the Panther coaches.

I would like to congratulate the Tween B Regina
Razors on a 2nd place finish at
March 6-8, 2009. The final was an awesome game played against
the Regina Panthers that went into sudden death
overtime. It was a great weekend of some really good
I would also like to take this time to congratulate the
Razors on other accomplishments this Ringette season.
The girls participated in the Calgary Golden Ring this
year taking silver with a good game against the Buffalo
Plains Phantoms with a score of 3-1, with those 3 goals
being half of the 6 goals in total the Razors had
against them. They also participated in the Queen City
Classic and placing 2nd and winning another silver
medal. We also took up the City of Bridges Tournament
in Saskatoon where we took the gold medal in a final
game of 9-2 against the Saskatoon Toxic.
I would like to take this time to say a big thank you to the
parents of the Razors for making this year a good one
for all on the team, and making my job so much easier.
I have a special thank you for the coaches of the Razors
Chris Budzich, Greg Taylor and Lori McMillan. You guys
have done an outstanding job this year. You guys truly
made this team a team, and a team is how they have
played since our very first game this season. I cannot
say enough as to how these coaches have made our girls
feel like part of a team. I know my daughter has had one
of her best years ever.
To all the girls on the Razors – thanks so much for a great
season of ringette. You girls always brought a smile to
my face when I walked in the dressing room and I was
always so proud when you guys were on the ice and
playing your hearts out.
Again thanks for an amazing season of Ringette. I couldn’t
have done this without patient parents, great coaches,
and awesome girls to make the season a great season!

Congratulations to the Tween AA
Aces - Saskatchewan Provincial Champions
few short days after winning the Silver medal in the
Queen City Classic, the Regina Havoc made the trek to
Saskatoon for their final tournament of the season.
With Kendyl in Disney World, and poor Hannah suffering
from pneumonia, the remaining skaters (Brieanna,
Michaela, Katelyn, Cassidy, Jessica, Mikayla, Madison,
and Michelle) were asked to
play different positions and extra shifts, and Georgina
was called upon to make a number of outstanding saves.
The girls all stepped up and played some of their best
Ringette of the season, surprising the coaches and
parents by winning their pool and making it to the medal
rounds. After losing a tough semi-final to the
Saskatoon Breakers, they regrouped to face a tough
Regina Ice Devils team in the Bronze final. It was a
great goaltending duel (both named MVP) that went down
to the wire. Trailing 2-1 with just over a minute left,
the Havoc girls did not give up and scored 2 late goals,
then an empty netter to capture the Bronze 4-2.
Congratulations to the Havoc girls
your Bronze medal in Saskatoon, and for going 5 for 5
medaling in tournaments this year! You’ve all
progressed and have come together as a team to play some
outstanding Ringette. Your coaches and parents are
extremely proud of your accomplishments this year.
Coach Kayla, Mike, and Shauna
Kirsten Hack of Regina for becoming a member of Team Canada
U19 Team West.
Congratulations to the Regina Blades
Open B team on your Silver Medals at the Regina &
Last year the
Blades team took a year off from playing Ringette but
decided to come back this year to play again. This team is a
pleasure to coach because of the friendship and the respect
the players have for each other. We look forward to the
remainder of the season and to competing for the League
Larry Way, Larry Ekvall, Janis Way
want to congratulate our players for making the top four in
both the Regina and the Saskatoon tournaments. In Saskatoon
we were the only Tween B Team to win all four games in round
robin play and we scored fifty-nine goals in the six
tournament games we played. Our team played every game with
intensity, with discipline and with heart. We are looking
forward to competing in the Tween B Provincials and in the
League Championships later in the season. We want to thank
our players for continuing to work hard, for having positive
attitudes and for making the year a lot of fun for their
coaches. We want to thank our team parents again for their
support of our programs and for cheering on our team during
Congratulations to the Petite Ice
Catz on bringing home the Silver Medal on the Valentines
weekend in Saskatoon. The girls played fantastic all
weekend and really did themselves proud. The weekend got
off to a great start on Friday morning with a 7 - 3 win
over the Saskatoon Fury. Later that day they played to
an inspired 5 - 5 tie with the Regina Ice Devilz.
On Saturday the girls suffered a
setback to a team from St. Albert, Alberta, and their
amazing goalie. They ended Saturday with a 8 - 3 win
over the Regina Cobras.
On Sunday morning in the Semi Final, the girls fell
behind the Ice Devilz 2 - 0 early, but battled back to
force overtime. In the overtime period it was wide open
back and forth with the Catz scoring the winner with
just over a minute left. The girls ran out of steam in
the Final, but Silver looked just great on them.
We would like to thank our
Coaches, Mike and Pete, Managers Tara and Kelly, and
Trainer Karen, and especially our girls, Liz, Hayley,
Aubrie, Hannah, Allison, Natalie, Claudia, Miranda, and
Brooke ( and also Michaela and Tessa who couldn't make
it, but were there in spirit) for an amazing and
exciting weekend.... Go Ice Catz....from all the
Families and Friends.
want to congratulate our Panther players for finishing in the top
four of sixteen Tween B teams entered in the Calgary Golden Ring. We
lost in overtime in the cross over game which determined which team
advanced to the final, but we were just one break away from making
the gold final.
also want to congratulate our team for winning to right to represent
Regina at the Tween B Provincial Championships along with the Regina
Razors. Through hard work and a positive attitude this team has
transformed themselves from the Bad News Bears in October into one
of the most disciplined teams in January that we have ever worked
with. We are very excited about attending the Regina, Saskatoon and
Tween B Provincial tournaments as well as the League Championships
with our team.
want to thank our team parents for their willingness to allow us to
provide an extensive ice and dry-land practice program for our team
and to give the girls the opportunity to attend six tournaments. We
would like to also thank our team parents for their support, their
friendship, and for all the fun and enthusiasm they bring to our

The Regina Havoc
loaded a bus early Thursday morning and made the trip to
Calgary, Alberta for the world's largest ringette
tournament. The girls lost their first game 7-6 against a
tough Sherwood Park team, but that would not bring them
down. They went on to stomp the Calgary Toxic 8-0! The girls
were on a roll, winning their next game versus the Calgary
Storm. This meant that the Havoc would advance to the
quarter-final game, which once again they dominated! They
won the semi-final game 9-4, and were on the the final. The
final game was once again versus the tough Sherwood Park
team, and even though they did not win, the Havoc players
worked very hard and came home with a proud silver medal.
This team is an amazing
team, and we are very proud of how far the Havoc got in the
tournament. It was nice to see each individual player play a
role in our success, and it was great to see the team come
together. The weekend was full of many laughs with the
girls as well as with the parents and it was a great success
in everyone's eyes!
As coaches, we would also
like to take this moment to congratulate the girls in the
two medals they previously received. The Regina Havoc were
gold medal winners at the Hellraisers tournament in Odessa,
and they were bronze medal winners at the Ice Catz
tournament in Wolseley.
Great season so far girls,
and good luck in the Regina and Saskatoon tournaments.
From: Coach Kayla, Coach
Mike (aka Tod), and Coach Shauna!
Congratulations Petite Ice Devilz on a great effort in
Medicine Hat! Even though we lost in the Bronze medal game,
the rest of the weekend was a HUGE success. Finishing in
4th place out of 15 teams is a tremendous accomplishment.
Our girls won all 4 games in the round robin taking them to
the quarter final. With a win over Calgary our girls found
themselves facing Airdrie in the semi final. What a great
game that was! At the end of regulation time the score was
5 to 5. Oh no, sudden death overtime! Next team to score
goes for the GOLD! It was tough but our girls fell short
and found themselves facing Pilot Butte in the Bronze medal
game instead. Ice Devilz, you should be so proud of
yourselves, in all seven games you played with heart and
determination! You really are a TEAM! Keep up the great
work in the rest of the season.
Go ICE DEVILZ Go!
