Multi-sport prep – Jan 28

As we prepare for this evening’s program start, we would like to thank you for your registration and pass along the information you’ll need for your first practice.​

Your speed skating coaches Aaron and Mark will be waiting for you in Club Room 2 at the Cindy Klassen Recreation Centre (999 Sargent Ave).  

Please be sure to dress appropriately for the weather – Environment Canada’s current forecast is for -10c temperatures with moderate winds.  

Remember that your child will also need a helmet and gloves for these skating sessions.

Please arrive 15 minutes early for this first session, so we can fit you for skates.

Parents can watch in the warmth from the upstairs viewing area.  Or, if you are feeling inspired, let us know we can get some skates for you to try as well!

Thank you on behalf of MCA, MSSA, CCSAM, and TriMB!

Let’s get racing Manitoba!

During this time of social distancing, we have seen our ability to race with one another outside become unavailable as an option. We are all itching to race, but currently we are unable to have any races in Manitoba. To help satisfy our racing itch, we decided to come up with some different types of races. The Social Distancing Challenges are solo races over different courses (road, urban cyclocross and MTB), where we can race each other for the fastest times on each course.

Every two weeks we will setup 3 different types of courses for you to complete. The goal is to complete a course in the fastest time that you can. Funding raised from these challenges will be used to support maintenance work at Bison Butte and other MTB venues used as part of these challenges. Bison Butte has taken some heavy damage this spring from being ridden on too early, that it now requires some work to repair. Other venues in Manitoba are also being continually maintained and improved, and we want to support them as well. Thus, there is a need to raise funds to help offset these costs to maintain the venues that we all love to ride.

Sport Surveys

Sport Manitoba has been made aware of two surveys we’d like to share with our Sport Partners.

The first survey from Sport for Life looks at the impact of COVID-19 on local sport organizations and is based on Sport Calgary’s recent work which identified the COVID-19 impact to local sports organizations and clubs in Calgary.

The results of the survey will be shared with federal, provincial, territorial and municipal governments as a catalyst for action to support local sport organizations.

Please complete this survey by June 5, 2020 and share it with any other sports organizations in your network.

The second survey is about measuring your sport’s culture called What Not to Yell. The survey asks what values you believe are important in sport moving forward, and what behaviours you’d like to see more or less of.

SURVEY 1: IMPACTS OF COVID-19 ON LOCAL SPORTS ORGANIZATIONS

SURVEY 2: WHAT NOT TO YELLNews: Online – Volunteer Manitoba’s Emerging Leaders Program

The non-profit sector is complex, dynamic and multi-faceted, and the future will bring significant change. Leaders need an informed and strengthened competency foundation for the new environment and pressures. This program focuses on developing the seven key leadership competencies that will best prepare you and your non-profit to face these challenges.

An Emerging Leaders Program Certificate will be issued upon completion of the program’s four courses.

Special Offer! Register for all four courses and pay only $550!

LEARN MORENews: Sport Manitoba Clinic Now Open.

As you may already be aware, all services are available at the Sport Manitoba Clinic.

The clinic’s top priority remains the well-being of their patients, team and community, and they are closely monitoring new developments regarding COVID-19. During this time, the clinic continues to follow best practices to ensure it is a clean and safe environment to work and provide care.

The need for food bank use is rising and donations are down. But Recycle Everywhere staff will be collecting food hamper donations for Winnipeg Harvest!

To help, simply register online, gather food items to donate, and someone will collect the hamper at your doorstep, contact-free!

REGISTER FOR PICK-UPFacility RemindersPlease remember that we must continue to follow the precautions put forth by the Province of Manitoba, both inside and outside of the facility.

This means staying at home if you feel ill or exhibit any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, following social distancing measures (two metres or six feet apart, which means a maximum of two people per elevator in Sport Manitoba), covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, coughing or sneezing into your sleeve, and washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 15 seconds, and utilizing technology to avoid face-to-face meetings. You can find more information on prevention here.

Note: control of digital thermostats in facility offices are at your control. These digital thermostats only control the baseboard heaters in the offices and there is no need for Sport Manitoba to control them. The white Trane thermostats in facility offices control the heat pumps. Our Building Engineer, Richard, will remain in control of these thermostats as the changes may affect other offices.
