Kate Bell, daughter of Bryan & Sara Bell, stated playing ringette at the U10 level in 2013. She started on defense and has continued in this position to this day. For the first 3 years she played her association only played in tournaments and did not have any league play. In 2016 her association was able to join the Winnipeg Ringette League and they began having regular season games and tournaments. Kate is also a certified referee and enjoys reffing games in the Brandon tournament every year.
Some of Kate’s highlights from the past two years include making the Westman Ringette Team and playing in the Manitoba Winter Games in Thompson Mb. She has been able to meet lots of new people and visit places that she has never had the chance to go before. In 2017 her team won gold in the Provincial Tournament, in 2018 and 2019 her team walked away with silver.
Kate continues to play her favorite sport, and when she age’s out she wishes to continue helping the sport of Ringette to grow reffing and hopefully one day coaching.
Kate is also a very accomplished musician…more on that in a future post.
