Canada Games Ringette

Although the partnership between Acadia University and the Canadian Sport Center Atlantic was announced on January 9th, 2015, 8 members of Team Nova Scotia Ringette have been working with the Acadia Performance Training Staff since October. Ali, Annie, Bailey, Brittany, Kirsti, Laura, Olivia and Reagan have been attending sessions on Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm in preparation for their trip to Prince George, BC for the 2015 Canada Winter Games.  These ladies are the first group of athletes to benefit from the CSCA partnership and their improvements are a testament to the opportunity this provides for athletes all over the Annapolis Valley.

This group trains as hard as any of our Varsity teams. They came to us in 2014 eager to learn and get stronger and that is exactly what they have done. Progressing rapidly through the basic movement patterns and into more advanced Olympic and Power lifts, their commitment, work ethic and camaraderie are infectious in the weight room. Training sessions focus on the development of lower body strength and power, as well as unilateral strength and stability, these ladies are ready to compete. Not unlike most teams, this group came in with  its fair share of injuries and setbacks that we had to program in consideration with, but they continue to improve and come together for the goal of bringing home Gold at the 2015 CWG.

Result:

Although our placement was not where we had hoped, we all came away feeling very accomplished in our performance. We were able to take two perennial powerhouses (Ontario and Alberta) in Canadian Ringette to sudden victory overtimes. We played seven competitive games, winning three while losing three in overtime. It was by far the most competitive we have been at this competition in many years.

    I wanted to share my appreciation for the work you did with our Acadia athletes in preparation for the Games. The girls who were committed to training were FIT! There were no injuries due to poor fitness and they were physically able to compete to the final whistle of all four overtime games.  Your staffs made this happen and so for this you need to be credited for their successful performance. Thank you!

   The girls shared with me that your staff demanded their best effort, while still enjoying the experiences. That takes a special skill! You've all got it!
