Ringette Hall of Fame

June Tiessen


June’s first involvement with ringette was when her daughter played. She soon became president of Waterloo Minor Ringette (1970) and served the sport in almost every role for the next 5 years. She became an Ontario Ringette Association Board member in 1973 and President from 1974 to 1976. She also served as President of Ringette Canada and chaired the first National Ringette Championships. Many years of dedication to the sport have earned June Tiessen the apt title of “Grandma Ringette.”

Territory acknowledgement

While we are a proud Canadian organization, we acknowledge that our head office is located on traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg People, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Ringette Canada extends our respect to all First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples for their valuable contributions to this land. We are committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
