Ringette Canada – London, Ontario – April 9, 2016 – All-stars were named tonight at the closing ceremony of the 2016 Canadian ringette championships in London, Ontario.

The Canadian ringette championships are designed to crown champions in the U16, U19 and National Ringette League (19+) divisions; to provide fun, friendship and fitness to participating players; and to encourage ringette across Canada. The performance awards recognize excellence in the sport of ringette.

While the championships hope to stimulate ringette participation in Canada, they also carry the important goal of promoting excellence in competitive ringette – team excellence and individual excellence. Criteria for being awarded a performance award include: general excellence, specialized skills in her position, contribution to team success, capacity for fair play, and sportsmanship.
