Ringette Hall of Fame

Wes Clark


Wes Clark started in ringette in 1978 when he was hired as the technical director for the Ontario Ringette Association to develop the sport’s coaching, officiating, player development and technical aspects of the competitive programs. In 1982 he was hired as the first executive director of Ringette Canada, established the national office in Ottawa and was instrumental in shaping the organization’s financial plan and securing federal funding for additional programs and staff.

Clark also recruited several major sponsors, helping to raise the profile of ringette and decrease Ringette Canada’s reliance on federal government funds. With a wide scope of sport experience in all technical aspects from a variety of sports, and a Master’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo, he went on to provide extraordinary leadership to the sport for the next 14 years. In 1993 he received the Agnes Jacks Award from the Jacks family for his international contribution to 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.
