Vandale, who passed away suddenly in 2009 at the age of 42, used to coach youth ringette with the Fraser Valley Ringette Association.
To honour her memory, her name was added to the already-existing Spirit of Winter ringette tournament.
Anyone interested in joining the tournament committee or helping out at the tournament is asked to email Nicole Borges or Jeaneen Briner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
