Sport Manitoba has established a new home to serve the province - the Sport for Life Centre. The Sport for Life Centre profoundly improves access to sport and sport training across Manitoba.
A first in Canada, the Centre houses 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 develops 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 - grow and develop using this top-notch, year-round training facility. It combines groundbreaking opportunities in coaching, athletic therapy, fitness testing, nutrition and sports psychology, which results in success on provincial, national, and world stages. Coaching and training resources are available online and via web-conferencing so that all Manitobans can benefit.
Kids Join the Right Team
Sport programming and leadership development is being provided for underserved youth. The benefits of sport include staying in school, becoming a role model, and preventing gang involvement.
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 once it's complete.
Bring Sports Heroes to Life
The new and interactive Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame & Museum serves as a source for inspiration, as do athletes of all levels training together in the same facility.
Build Healthy Communities
The Sport for Life Centre is 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.
