Ringette Academy


We are proud to announce St. Thomas More’s new Ringette Academy! 

Run by Ringette power skating instructor Mr. Wade Burt and certified Ringette coach Mr. Joel Lajoie, this academy is unique to St. Thomas More as there are currently no other Catholic ringette academies operating in Edmonton or surrounding areas.  We will be accepting Ringette Academy applications for all students entering into grade 7 and 8 for the 2019-2020 school year. 

The Sports Academies at St. Thomas More are designed to challenge and inspire each participant. Access to expert instruction and high intensity training provide students with a unique opportunity to excel in their chosen sport. Our academies offer students opportunities to develop life-skills such as organizational strategies, time management skills, visualization techniques and self-discipline.

The St. Thomas More Ringette Academy is open to boys and girls at varying levels of skill development. Students take their core academic subjects in the morning and participate in the Sports Academy in the afternoon. The Academy offers dedicated training in ringette as well as cross-training and fitness activities. Admission to the Sports Academies at St. Thomas More is dependent upon satisfactory standing in academic courses.

The Ringette Academy at St. Thomas More offers students a variety of on and off ice training sessions. On-ice sessions take place in a number of west Edmonton arenas such as, Callingwood, Bill Hunter and Terwilliger. Off-ice sessions include team-building, cross-training, weight training, mental training, character development and various field trips.

 "Sports are not merely the exercise of muscles, but the school of moral values and of training in courage, in perseverance, and in overcoming laziness and carelessness. There is no doubt that these values are of greatest interest for the formation of a personality which considers sports not an end in itself but as a means to total and harmonious physical, moral and social development."

- Pope John Paul II
