Jim File and Beth Hurren

Beth has been a great ambassador for Ringette not only in Richmond Hill but wherever she goes. In addition to playing the game she loves, Beth has always been eager to give back to her ringette community.

She has instructed at numerous ringette camps aiding in the development of the next generation of player. She has organized and run the RHRA Fall Skills Clinics for 10 years. 

Lastly, she has been instrumental in the annual Richmond Hill Come Try Ringette event which has become key in recruiting new players into the association and the game.

We know that in reality, Beth surpassed 500 NRL points some time ago, since she started in the league in 2004 while NRL records only go back to the 2008-09 season. Her accomplishment is even more special because Beth has played most of her career on defense, yet she has accumulated more points than many forwards accumulate in an NRL career.

Congratulations Beth and thank you for all you have done for Ringette and for RHRA!
