Athletics Manitoba School Outreach Program 2019
Athletics Manitoba will once again offer an outreach program to schools to assist with training and competition for the 2019 Outdoor Track Season. The long term goal of this program is to develop and support a strong feeder system for Manitoba Games and other regional and provincial competitions.
The program is targeted at grades 6 through 9 (U14 & U16 athletes) as an introduction to further Athletics training in running, jumping and throwing events. However, depending on the size of the school and the number of athletes, high school students can be engaged in the program as well. The resources for this program are designed to help athletes transition from an introductory Run Jump Throw Wheel program into more advanced technical program and to prepare athletes wishing to be a part of future Provincial Team opportunities. Coaches will be provided with a 6 week program that can be modified as needed to fit the needs of their practice schedule.
There is no fee for this program, but for insurance purposes all schools must have an Athletics Manitoba Membership-(download form).
Interested schools can sign up to be part of the program which will include the provision of a 6 week training program for athletes (3 sessions a week) and at least one visit from Athletics Manitoba clinicians. Following the clinic(s), athletes and/or teams will be encouraged to compete at the Age Class Championships at the end of June. In addition, U16 athletes (ages 14-15) are eligible for selection to the U16 Provincial Team that competes at the Tri‐Province Meet in July.
