Dear Coach,

Imagine getting up on a Sunday morning before ringette practice. You have a leisurely breakfast and then casually log on to your computer.

You receive a practice plan showing you exactly how to run your afternoon practice. Today, your players will learn:

  1. How to double their goal scoring, including how to score by themselves on the triangle AND AND
  2. How to deke the pants off the goalie so she is hopelessly out of position.

You then read Laura Warner’s answer to the question you sent her last week: Two of my players are fighting about the fact that one of them is not passing. What do I do?

She gives you the exact recipe for solving this problem.

You silently yell Yes! and pump your fist in the air. Your prep time for this practice was all of 12 minutes but your players will be collecting gold medals by the end of next weekend.

You don’t have to imagine this

It can be the reality of your season this year. For years, Laura and I have been helping coaches build ringette champions, and we can help you too.


I’ve had the most amazing success this year using your techniques! My daughter’s team is advancing to the Provincials this year and her confidence and skating ability are at record highs! She is on a large team and did not see much ice at the beginning of the season. She decided she would take what you taught her and push it to the limits each time she was on the ice. She is now the player they call on for power plays and penalty killing lines.

You and your staff have fulfilled her dreams… and it doesn’t stop there.

I myself have taken what I saw at your ringette school and what I read in your confidence bulletins and applied it in my role as Assistant Coach on a Belle A team. This team had to withdraw from even trying the provincial prelims last year because they lost so much! I thought this would be the team to try out some of your techniques with.

Well… they went from 8th place to a three way tie for 2nd. They forced the 1st place team to a tie breaking game to see who would go to the Provincials. Your program has helped me as a coach and I strongly urge you to market it as a tool for coaches. I thank you and your staff one more time for the great work you do for players and coaches.

Yours in ringette,
Robin Mahy (Hamilton)

Over the course of this ringette season, the coaching staff of the Tween AA team, of which I am a part, referred to a number of “lessons learned” from your emails. The “L” pattern for getting open was just what we needed to help teach our girls to give and receive better passes.

As the year went on, the coaching staff felt we still were not progressing as well as we would have liked. I decided to invest in the “How to Be a Ringette Star” system.

We showed our athletes the lesson on Goal Scoring. We developed a simple drill that helped them understand that goals are scored from the “Hot Spot”. We incorporated these techniques into almost every practice for the rest of the season.

Suddenly players that had barely scored all year started going to the net and scoring. And our big scorers were finishing more consistently. It was incredible!

To make a long story short, with your help, our team peaked at the perfect time. We won Gold at the Provincials and the Eastern Canadian Championships.

Thank you to Lisa and Laura!

Hi Lisa and Laura,

Well, I think we did it! In preparation for our first game last weekend, I ran the girls through your channeling drill that enforces the importance of keeping the opposition away from the Hot Spot. At first, I had the defence practice being “too far away from the forward. The attackers had about a 60% success rate (our goalie is fantastic!). Then they practiced being “too close to the forward. The defence were consistently being passed by the attackers. This time the forwards success rate was higher since they were on breakaways! Finally, our defence practicedjust right. The forwards success rate was way down and the defence were really able to push the attackers out so they had to make a bad angle shot.

Then the true test came – our first game. By the end of the first period it was 4 0…FOR US! These girls completely shut down the opposition forwards by pushing them away from center ice and into the corners! I could not believe it! In the end, the score was 13 3. Our team continually made them shoot from the blue line or from the corners.

I AM A BELIEVER! I’ll keep you posted on future successes. Thanks again for all of the guidance and help!

Hello Lisa,

The information provided by this tool has been such a valuable asset to our program. By incorporating many of the ideas provided, we have been able to build our Belle A program to the point where our team ended up in a 5 way tie for first place in Round Robin action at the Ontario Provincials this past season. (it may not seem like much but we only had 3 Belle age players on the team¦the rest were Juniors!) In addition 5 of our players have recently been successful in earning a position on the Northeast Region AAA team.

Thanks so much!

p.s. Check out this special success story I received recently:

This year I decided to take on the Tween B team with a couple of other dads.

We had 4 returning girls and 5 first years. We had to have an athlete “age advanced” so we could have a team of 10. At first, the athletes would sit in groups on opposite sides of the room. We played the usual get to know me games and started our season with the plan to learn, have fun and improve.

We started out really badly and were not playing as a team.

Using the coaching information you provided I started a binder for each player and sent them e-mail reminders on ways to change and improve. I made posters for the dressing room.

Then one e-mail struck me with some success. I understood that I needed to work more on their self-esteem, get more team play and for me to calm down! As a group we could be stronger than the individuals that were emerging.

I started asking the girls what they thought we needed to do and what we were doing well. I gave them team time before each game to talk about what they wanted to do this game. I showed your video often.

They broke down the game into playing their best on each shift, winning each half and the game wins started to follow. We had won 2 tournaments and were 4th in league play.

We met to start playoffs saying we were only going to worry about the things that we were in control of. I got calm behind the bench and everyone was more calm to play. We beat the first place team who we could not solve all year and continued to the final game for the city championship!

Before the final we talked about who we wanted to win the game for. I asked them if they wanted to play for this person and I had a mirror in my bag so they could see themselves.

I said, no matter who was going to be their motivation they were champions already so they just had to relax, try their best and have fun. That was the last message.

At half time we had a 4-2 lead but we had lost to this team in league play with a 5-1 lead. Standing at the boards at half time waiting for me to say something the players started talking to each other. ‘We are going to win’, ‘focus on the things we can do’, ‘skate hard’, ‘shoot at the corners’, and ‘play the L’. I said go out and have fun.

At the team wind up our apprentice coach summed things up pretty good. You started out as 10 girls on opposite sides of the room and look at you now all together on the floor, happy with new friends and seated as a team… a City Championship team.

The year end card I got as a coach was full of thank you’s for ‘the best season that I have had’, ‘I learned a lot’ and ‘thanks I had a lot of fun’. The other coaches said it was great and they had learned too. The parents were even happy and socializing more than they ever had, it was contagious.

The on-line coaching really helped the girls become the best ringette player that was inside them. Thanks.
