The Manitoba Games powered by Manitoba Hydro are the province’s largest ongoing multi-sport program bringing together participants from across the province. The Manitoba Games are often an athlete’s first multi-sport Games experience. The Games help to identify Manitoba athletes who have the potential to advance to higher levels of competition: Provincial Team, National Competition, and the Canada and Western Canada Games. After competing in the Manitoba Games, many athletes move on to become part of Team Manitoba!
Teams will be named based off of the Manitoba regional map. This map has updated since the last cycle: The old “Westman” and “Parkland” regions have now become the “West” region; “Central” and the Southern portion of “Eastman” have become the “South” region; The Northern portion of “Eastman” joined with “Interlake” to become the “East” region; and the North assumes the previous “Norman” region. Winnipeg is split into two teams; these teams are based on the city limits and not Perimeter Highway. Communities located just outside of the city will fall to their respective area region.
For a visual representation of the Regions, please check out the Regional Map.
The City of Dauphin will host the 2020 Manitoba Summer Games from August 9-15, 2020 which will involve 1,500 athletes from around the province.
