The “New Battle of Alberta” UofC vs UofA
2003-2004 was the inaugural year for a Ringette team based out of the University of Calgary. This was a significant step in the development of our sport with the hope that a intercollegiate league will not only offer our sport more publicity, but will also give post-secondary aged ringette players opportunities they have never had before.
The UofC team participated in the Ringette Calgary league in the Deb/Intermediate division and was coached by Beth Veale, Bob Kerr and Bruce Hammond. Thanks to Beth for her hard work in getting this program off the ground.
“Brian Hendricks Memorial Award 2004”
The Brian Hendricks Memorial award is given out each year by Bowview Ringette to a person who has made an exceptional contribution to the sport and our association. On May 19, 2004, the award was presented to Shawn Curran, who is one of the "Pioneers" of Ringette in Calgary. Shawn has coached and supported the sport for over 25 years, first with daughters, and now with a granddaughter. He is a tremendous ambassador and supporter of the sport. The award was presented by Jack Marsh, President of Bowview, on behalf of the Hendricks family.
