Sport Manitoba envisions creating the best sport community through initiative and leadership and by establishing a highly supportive environment that will enhance the abilities of all Manitobans in their pursuit of excellence and in their joy of effort in amateur sport.
Below is an introductory list of services, programs and events that are designed to support and develop our athletes.
Sport Medicine Centre: This 5,226 square foot space is fully outfitted with state of the art equipment and supports a wide spectrum of patients of all ages and all abilities. Sport medicine services offered in a team environment now available to Manitobans include a sport medicine physician, chiropractic services, physical therapy, massage therapy, nutrition, and sport psychology.
Sport for Life Performance Centre: The focus of the Performance Centre is to provide a menu of services and mechanisms to help athletes at the Learn to Train and Train to Train stages develop the mental, physical, technical and tactical requirements to achieve their desired performance outcomes. The Performance Centre caters to the specific developmental needs of Interprovincial Games and provincial team athletes and coaches, elite athletes transitioning from the provincial to national level and national team members as required.
