Midget & Youth Provincial Team

The Midget & Youth Tri Province team program is a provincially focused competition opportunity run by Athletics Manitoba. The program targets athletes born in 2003/2004 (Midget) and 2001 2002 (Youth). The overall goal of the program is twofold; to provide an out of province competitive opportunity for our top athletes and to serve as a means of identifying and engaging new talent in the performance pathway of track and field. In an effort to increase the effectiveness and scope of the Midget & Youth Provincial Team program; the 2018 program will include additional rural outreach efforts to help deliver Athletics to communities throughout the province while allowing for athlete and coach development. 

Technical sessions will be run for interested athletes on selected days following the announcement of the Tri Province coaching staff. Each practice will have coaches designated for event group and will provide development for technical skills. These events include, Jumps, Throws, Sprints & Hurdles, Steeple, and Pole Vault. Early technical introduction is highly beneficial and needed for developmental athletes and this program will ideally create a stepping stone in the pathway to Junior, Senior, and Varsity success.
 
Final team selection will take place at Age Class championships Friday, June 22 & Saturday, June 23.
All Prep Squad events and practices will be open to all interested Midget/Youth athletes.
