“I started playing ringette at nine years old with a club team in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, a small city north of Saskatoon. I joined ringette because my friends played. At the age of 14 I started playing for the Saskatoon AA program, which set me on the path to participate in nine Canadian Ringette Championships, travel to Finland and Sweden, play with Team Saskatchewan at Canada Winter Games, and be part of the National Ringette League for five years with the Saskatoon Wild. Ringette has helped me stay balanced through different stages of life, like going to university, starting a career, and starting a family. It helps me stay physically active, socialize with friends, connect with my community, and give back. Today, my passion for ringette extends beyond playing. I am a coach and a board member for the Saskatoon Ringette Association where I currently serve as President. I want to help grow the sport and give back so that others benefit from ringette as much as I have. Ringette is a positive force for helping young people – mostly female – to develop healthy attitudes about themselves, stay active, make new friends, be part of a team and gain confidence. Sport can provide a safe place for young people to learn how to win and lose, fall down and get up, and face challenges and achieve success. While I started playing ringette to be with my friends, my involvement today is motivated by wanting to be part of something positive and impactful. Ringette provides me the perfect avenue to do exactly this.” – Kim Brown (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan)
