National Ringette League chair steps down

After three years of serving as the National Ringette League chairman, Maurice Jean has stepped down from the role and will assume the position of general manager of the Rive Sud Revolution franchise.

"I have worked on the development of the NRL since the early days and while it was a lot of work, it was a great challenge and it is nice to have the satisfaction of knowing I was involved building something that is a key instrument for the promotion of ringette and the development of our high performance athlete,” said Jean. “I have had the opportunity to work with many fantastic people who are as passionate about ringette as I am.”

Over the years, Maurice took on many key roles in league administration before transitioning to the role of Eastern Conference commissioner and then serving as NRL Committee Chair for three years. During his time within the NRL leadership group, Maurice led many key initiatives and was instrumental in contributing to the advancement of the league.

“Maurice’s contribution to the National Ringette League are greatly appreciated,” said Frances Losier, Director of High Performance and Events, Ringette Canada. “We wish him the best of luck and are happy to see that his involvement with the NRL will continue at the franchise level with Rive Sud.”

The league is actively seeking a replacement for the position of NRL chair.
