A reminder that your 2019 Athletics Canada/Manitoba athlete, club, official and coach memberships expire December 31st. If you plan to compete in 2020, you need to renew your membership. Results will not be recognized for rankings or records, unless your membership is active and paid.
Members of the following clubs, Winnipeg Optimist Athletics, Stride Ahead Tough Track and the University of Manitoba Track & Field Team, renew and pay for their memberships through their clubs.
GST is charged on all memberships as well as the $5.00 equipment levy fee for athletes aged 14 and up, and $2.00 for athletes under aged 14 (U14 & U12)
Individual memberships are $78.75 ($70+$5+GST) or $75.60 ($70+$2+GST)
All other athletes and coaches need to renew their memberships online at the link above . If you are or have been an active member, your name will be in the Athletics Canada database, so select ‘Renewing Member’. Once you click Renewing Member, you can look up your AC number, (as you need to fill in that number). Click on ‘Look up’, (beside the AC# box) and fill in the required information. It will also indicate if your membership is ‘Active’ or ‘Expired’.
The ‘Request Club’ box defaults to Unattached, but please if you are with a club, click on ‘Look up’ and select your club from the list of registered Athletics Manitoba Clubs. Schools are not considered clubs, so please don’t select a school.
Once your membership is complete, and Athletics Manitoba confirms you are a registered member of the selected club, your Club affiliation will be adjusted.
You have the options of paying online by credit card. There is a processing fee of approximately $3.00 added to the membership fee.

Effective September 1, 2017 Athletics Manitoba increased its membership fee. The base fee structure will stay the same however we have added an equipment levy to all membership fees. This additional fee will NOT contribute to general revenue but will be set aside annually to contribute to the purchase/repair of equipment.
U14 & U12 Athletes: $2 per athlete
U16 to Masters Athletes: $5 per athlete
Elementary Schools: $20 per school
Junior/High Schools: $50 per school
Background for these changes:
In 2016-2017 Athletics Manitoba undertook an extensive review of its equipment inventory to understand the annual operating costs associated with equipment use, maintenance and replacement. The purpose in doing this exercise was to create a long-term equipment maintenance plan for our association. To ensure that AM and its members always have the equipment needed for training and competition. The equipment used to operate Athletics in Manitoba can be broken into four categories:
1) Consumables (i.e., ammunition, hip numbers, etc.)
2) Competition equipment
3) Training equipment
4) Technology (i.e., photo timing, computers, electronics)
For each category, an inventory was taken, and for each piece of equipment we determined the cost and its lifecycle. With that information, a formula was created to calculate an annual operating/maintenance cost. These spreadsheets are available upon request.
At the Athletics Canada SAGM in November 2018, a resolution was unanimously passed by all Provincial Branches to move away from our old Age Group Classifications Names. The new Age Group Classifications Names will be as follows:
OPEN + MASTER will remain
JUNIOR becomes U20
YOUTH becomes U18
MIDGET becomes U16
BANTAM becomes U14
PEEWEE becomes U12
