Ringette Canada announces new Athletes’ Council members

Ottawa, ON–Ringette Canada is pleased to announce the addition of new members to the Athletes’ Council. Brea Beck has moved into the Interim Chair position, while previous Junior National Team (JNT) member Regan Meier was elected to the Council. Britney Snowdon and Laurence Larocque were re-elected for another term. Erika Kiviaho, Emily Chénier, and Erin Ung are serving the second of their two-year terms.

“We are excited to welcome Regan to the Athletes’ Council to enhance the JNT representation, as well as welcome back Britney and Laurence who have both been great advocates for national team athletes,” said Brea Beck, Interim Chair. “As Christianne Varty is stepping away from the Council, we want to thank her for her time, energy, and the leadership she provided. She was a vital member of our inaugural Council.”

The Athletes’ Council serves to represent and promote national team athletes’ views and interests, offering a direct connection to the governance and leadership of Ringette Canada. They serve as a collective voice for the Senior and Junior National Team, and ensure athlete-focused decision-making.

“We are excited to continue advocating for National Team athletes, both on the JNT and SNT, and provide the athlete’s perspective to Ringette Canada’s High Performance initiatives,” Beck said. “I think having an Athletes’ Council is imperative for all sport organizations as it gives athletes an avenue to be heard, and it helps ensure initiatives are athlete-centered.”

Athletes’ Council members serve two-year terms. Members are permitted to serve a maximum of three consecutive terms.
