To our Members, Partners and Supporters,
2019 has truly been an incredible year for both Athletics Manitoba and Bison Sport. We have witnessed some fantastic athletes competing at the top of their game, with some truly outstanding and incredible moments taking place on our home turf. If we look back over the last three years, we have also had the pleasure of hosting some great major events, like the Canada Summer Games in 2017, Legion National Championships in 2017 and 2018, finally capping things off with the U Sport Championships in March of 2019.
As we look forward to 2020, we want to step up our game and we realize that we can’t do it alone. This is where you come in.
Athletics Manitoba and Bison Sports are working together to improve the overall athlete and spectator experience in our track and field facilities. The James Daly fieldhouse is the only full-scale indoor competition facility for athletics in Manitoba and hosts all of the province’s premier indoor track and field events. Unfortunately, it still requires some updating. Our goal is to purchase new, larger, and higher quality display boards, that will allow us to truly highlight and celebrate the success of our athletes. While we have received a commitment of $4000, we still have to raise a significant amount to achieve these goals.

Athletics Manitoba Board of Directors
“For all athletes having display boards at competitions makes everything more exciting, more intense, and more meaningful! Having a performance shared with other athletes, coaches and spectators adds to the excitement of the performance!”
Bryce Koscielny, Neepawa MB
“I have noticed lately that track meets are hard to follow. My son broke the Provincial Hammer Throw record (old record of 42.75m) with his monster throw of 47.64m, No one in the stands had any clue what had happened! A large display board is the solution.”
