U16 & U18 Provincial Team
The U16 & U18 Tri Province team program is a provincially focused competition opportunity run by Athletics Manitoba. The program is targeted towards athletes that fall into the U16 (14-15 years of age) and U18 (16-17 years of age) age categories. Each year the U16/U18 team attends the Tri-Province meet.
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 U16/U18 Provincial Team program; the 2021-2022 program includes additional rural outreach efforts to help deliver Athletics to communities throughout the province while allowing for athlete and coach development.
Standards used for potential provincial team selection are outlined below. Please note that achieving the standard or being named to the Prep Squad allows the athlete to enter the selection pool; it does not guarantee selection. Standards in the events must be met or exceeded in an Outdoor sanctioned competition between the dates of April 1st 2021 and the end of trials (June 17th-18th).
This year’s event will be held in Alberta (Sherwood Park), on July 22-24th.
