Our mission, as a board, is:
St. James Ringette Association (SJRA) is a place for female athletes to be passionate about the sport of ringette. SJRA continues to strive for athletes to make lifelong friendships and build confidence in a safe environment in their community.
SJRA is comprised of five different community clubs (Assiniboia West, Heritage Victoria, Kirkfield Westwood, Sturgeon Heights and Woodhaven). Each community club has qualified and talented athletes, coaches and role models to ensure all SJRA athletes can reach their full potential throughout each ringette season. However, our vision for SJRA athletes is to play for one name.
SJRA has not seen a rebrand in numerous years and it is due for a change. Historically, each community club would host a ringette team, and the team would be supported by a club with ice, jerseys, conveners, goalie equipment, etc.
Over the last year, the SJRA board along with the club conveners have united to re-brand St. James Ringette as SJRA BOOM. The name SJRA BOOM has been carefully chosen.
In 2016, one of our own SJRA players, Keira Bond, was diagnosed with an aggressive brainstem tumour at the young age of 10. Keira was a tenacious competitor, a team player who enjoyed setting up plays as much as scoring a goal and her nickname on the ice was “Boom Boom”. Having played ringette since the age of five, Keira possessed incredible determination, resilience, strength and passion towards ringette.
At every age, SJRA players can resonate with the word BOOM as they continue to show determination, resilience and strength throughout each ringette season.
A great play BOOM!
A great shot BOOM!
A great goal BOOM!
A great save BOOM!
