“We have an excellent program here and the kids get tons of one- on-one attention as they move up through the levels,” she says. Becky Turrill, instructor for the Learn to Skate program, is a near- legend on the ice. She first got in- volved with the association 16 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. “I love working with the girls,” she says. “Even though my little girl is in university now, it’s still a lot of fun to get out there. It’s so reward- ing to see the progress each player makes over the course of a season. To watch them go from Bambi legs to cross-cuts in just a few months is incredible.” “This is our first year as ringette parents and we’re really enjoying it,” says Krystal West. “Both our son and daughter played minor hockey last year, but this fall, Lainey really wanted to give ringette a try. I think she’s really enjoying playing on an all-girl team and the coaches have

been fantastic with her.” To learn more about Tillsonburg Twisters ringette visit them online at www.tillsonburgringette.com.
