Town of Niverville prepares to host the 2022 Manitoba Winter Games powered by Manitoba Hydro

ONE YEAR TO GO!

The 2022 Manitoba Games powered by Manitoba Hydro will take place February 27 – March 5, 2022 in Niverville, Manitoba. Upwards of 7,500 athletes, coaches, officials, and volunteers will participate in these Games. The Manitoba Games are administered by Sport Manitoba. The Games are the province’s largest ongoing multi-sport program bringing together participants from across the province, and are held every two years, alternating between summer and winter sport events.

“The Manitoba Games powered by Manitoba Hydro is the largest ongoing multi-sport event in the province. Thorough planning is necessary well in advance for an event this size, where athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and sponsors from across the province work together to provide a safe and memorable experience for everyone,” said Janet McMahon, Interim President & CEO of Sport Manitoba. “As excitement grows and preparation continues for the 2022 Games, we also understand and recognize the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and that public health orders will ultimately determine whether these Games will take place – participant safety is, in the end, the highest priority. We’d like to thank everyone for their ongoing efforts and commitment and look forward to Niverville hosting the 2022 Manitoba Winter Games.” 

SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER

Volunteer recruitment launches March 1. These Games will require upwards of 800 volunteers to support the behind the scenes, planning, and execution of the Games in a variety of roles, and their contribution will be a key factor in the Games’ success.

2020-2021 Virtual Annual Awards

We’re doing something a little different this year!

Our clubs couldn’t host events, our performance athletes couldn’t compete and that meant a lot more people had a lot more time to get creative and enjoy an unusual ski season.

We have a few ideas for annual awards (see below) but this year we challenge you to reflect and use your imagination and tell us WHO inspired you this season and WHAT accomplishment has earned your vote for an annual award.

Deadline for nominations is March 31st, 2021.

We won’t be able to celebrate our accomplishments together over a meal and good conversation but we promise to send all award winners a CCSAM Recognition stoneware mug made by a local maker.

Thanks in advance for sending in your nomination(s)!
