SEEKING TOURNAMENT SPONSORS
One of the key elements to any successful sports organization is sponsorship. This support helps families and the sport of Ringette as we try to keep registration and tournament fees as low as possible.
If you know of a business that would like to sponsor our upcoming tournament contact Robin and she will walk you through the details including our sponsor recognition program.

NEW VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
In organized youth sports, the primary determinants of whether youth will have a positive or negative experience are the adults involved - parents, coaches, officials, and administrators - and the quality of coaching and mentoring.
As with any not-for-profit sports organization, the GRA is always in need of enthusiastic and resourceful volunteers to bring new energy and ideas to improve the manner in which GRA serves its members, especially our players. There are many ways that you can become more involved, click on our list of volunteer opportunities and take a peek.
Your help can make a BIG difference, no matter how much or how little time you might have to contribute.
As a GRA member, we would like to invite you to our next meeting on December (TBA), 2013 at 7:30 pm. Contact us for details.
