We are the Walden Ringette association, a volunteer organization dedicated to the promotion of the sport of ringette in the Greater Sudbury area – more specifically, Walden and Chelmsford areas. Our divisions begin with the FUN teams who are under 8 years of age and go up to the Open division for those over the age 19. All skill levels are welcome and our dedicated coaches and bench staff will help to take all players to the level of skill they are hoping to achieve.
Ringette isn’t just about playing a sport. Our sport has a strong sense of community amongst players and supporters. A community that creates relationships and social aspects well beyond the sport – and last much longer than the time spent playing the game. Children also benefit with friendship, competition and life building skills because of the gift of our wonderful ringette volunteers and families that make this sport truly one of a kind. Our members are committed to promoting a sport which prides itself on good sportsmanship and fair play. Sponsorship and fundraising help us keep our registration costs down making ringette an affordable sport for anyone to join.
Money received from Community Partners, such as you, is absolutely critical in continuing our development and helping us to pay for team expenses such as:
- Ice times
- Team jerseys and other equipment
- Referees and timekeepers
- Tournament entry fees
Sponsors not only benefit from this widespread advertising, but will also receive a receipt for their contribution, and the knowledge that they are contributing to the success of dozens of grateful and talented young ringette players. It will give you positive exposure which in turn can lead to increased sales, heightened brand awareness and customer loyalty. We would be pleased to provide you with a copy of our schedule so that you could meet the team and see firsthand how your generous donation assists us in our development, or maybe even take in a game or two.
If you are interested in our sponsorship program, please contact us at the number or email below. Our coaches, players, and parents would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your generosity and support!
