Sport Manitoba is establishing a new home to serve the province - the Sport for Life Centre. The Sport for Life Centre will profoundly improve access to sport and sport training across Manitoba.
A first in Canada, the Centre will house sport expertise, training space and tools, exercise and sport facilities, therapeutic space, research capabilities and the Hall of Fame in one central location.
With an emphasis on training, mentoring and coaching, the Centre will develop leaders across the province who will help our next generation succeed - in sport and in life.
Train Athletes, Coaches and Volunteers
Manitoba’s athletes, coaches and teams - at all levels - will grow and develop using this top-notch, year-round training facility. It will combine groundbreaking opportunities in coaching, athletic therapy, fitness testing, nutrition and sports psychology, which will result in success on provincial, national, and world stages. Coaching and training resources will also be available online and via web-conferencing so that all Manitobans can benefit.
Help Kids Join the Right Team
Sport programming and leadership development will be provided for underserved youth, providing an alternative to gangs.
Revitalize Downtown Winnipeg
The Sport for Life Centre is centrally located and will invigorate Winnipeg’s inner city by attracting 400,000 people downtown each year.
Bring Sports Heroes to Life
The new and interactive Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame & Museum will serve as a source for inspiration, as will athletes of all levels training together in the same facility.
Build Healthy Communities
The Sport for Life Centre will be a one-stop resource that offers healthy alternatives for all ages. The same skills that aid sport development translate into valuable life skills and, in turn, a healthier community.
