2010 Hall of Fame - Rob and Barb Evans
Submitted By Jim File on Wednesday, June 5, 2013
We are delighted to be inducting two exceptional candidates as the first members into the RHRA “Hall of Fame”.

Barbara and Rob Evans have been long time residents of Richmond Hill and valuable contributors to the sport of Ringette in Richmond Hill and throughout the province in a variety of capacities.  Both Barb & Rob’s involvement in Ringette spans over 25 years. 

Rob started coaching his daughter Cheri in Richmond Hill in 1983. Along with coaching he has also been very involved in refereeing. Rob is also an evaluator and teacher of both coaches and officials. Many of our coaches have probably had Rob as an instructor at the various coaching seminars and courses. Rob has also spent time in various capacities on the executive boards of both the Richmond Hill and Etobicoke Ringette Associations. Rob has also been involved on the boards of the Southern Region Ringette Association, acting as chair between 2000-04 and as a Vice President on the ORA Executive between 2004 - 08. Rob has most recently been involved locally overseeing the Richmond Hill Lightning Bunny House League and Introduction to Ringette programs helping to develop our youngest players.

Barbara Evans has also served at the local level in a variety of capacities over the years. Barb was part of the Richmond Hill executive in the early years; including referee-in-chief, player rep, vice-president, and president. Barb was President of RHRA from 1985 - 1989 before moving on to the Southern Region executive, 1st as secretary and then as Chair of Southern region. Barb also spent 2 yrs as manager of the Southern Region “AAA” team. After her 8 yr stint at SRRA, Barb moved onto the ORA executive in a variety of capacities including President for 3 years. Barb was vital to the Ontario Ringette Association in a time of great difficulty. As president of the ORA, from 1995 to 1998, Barb made the difficult decisions that brought the ORA to a surplus when the budget was tight. The surplus Barb created as president of the ORA was still present when she was inducted into the ORA Hall of Fame in 2000 and is still present today. Barb’s most recent contributions to the sport of ringette were on the board at Ringette Canada.

Ringette has been a very big part of the Evans family for many years, son Jeff has also been very involved in both R-Hill and Southern Region as referee in chief for the past 6 years.

We are very proud to induct our first two very deserving members to the RHRA “Hall of Fame”.....Barbara and Rob Evans.
