Power AA Head Coaches
Sherwood Park Ringette Association Power AA is pleased to announce the 2018-2019 head coaches for the Power AA teams:
U14AA – Jennifer Rogers
Jen has been part of SPRA since she started skating at 6 years old, playing from the grassroots level to the international stage. An accomplished ringette player, she has won three world championships and five national championships as well as playing in the Finnish national league. Jen has been a coach on a number teams winning gold and silver medals at Canadian Ringette Championships in the U16 and U19 divisions. Now residing in Sherwood Park with her family she is back coaching; she started with Active Start and has coached teams through to U12A last season.
U16AA – Ryan Wismer
Ryan has 20+ seasons of coaching experience within community sports. His ringette coaching experience includes time within Sherwood Park & Zone 5 Associations. Ryan’s coaching accomplishments include two provincial championship winning teams at U12.
U19AA – Warren Fuller
Warren Fuller is committed to ringette player development and advancement of competitive ringette for our community. He was the first AA head coach in SPRA’s revival of the AA program. He has over 25 years experience with power skating, hockey and ringette; he made the shift to ringette because of its speed, finesse and team play. Warren guided our fledgling U16AA team to a silver medal at the 2018 Provincials, and attended the Canadian Ringette Championship as Alberta 2.
**The parent coach’s daughter must evaluate and rank high enough to be a member of the AA team before the coaching appointment is finalized.
Evaluations for Power AA
U14AA – All U14 athletes will take part in the first evaluation skate. There will be three designated AA tryout skates at U14 after that.
U16AA – All U16 athletes will take part in the first evaluation skate. There will be three – four AA tryout skates after that.
U19AA – U19 athletes are required to declare intent to tryout for AA. (**Please contact the AA Director if you have not declared your intent.)
Independent evaluators with experience and knowledge about competitive ringette will assess the AA hopefuls. AA teams will be selected by the SPRA Selections Committee and the head coaches.
If you are currently registered with another association and would like to try out for SPRA AA, please register on the SPRA registration page as a AA Non-Resident. There is a $50 fee for non-resident players to try out in Sherwood Park which will be refunded if you are selected for a SPRA Power AA team.
We welcome players from other associations to try out in SPRA (based on division needs), but require that you follow the Ringette Alberta Residency Policy for non-resident players. Please visit the Ringette Alberta website to be sure you are following the correct procedure.
