There is NO Exclusive Use Training Times this weekend April 13th & 14th, even though the 14th is shown on the calendar.
Saturday April 20th has been added, but the time will be from 12pm – 2pm, and that is the last day of indoor training. After that, it is outdoors. The long jump pits will be covered on the 18th, so will not be available on the 20th.

Attention all Coaches and Athletes utilizing the throwing cage at the University of Manitoba.
Safety in the landing area has again become an issue as the increased number of athletes and the influx of new people to our sport has led to a dangerous situation as athletes are retrieving implements while others are throwing.
As a result, the coaches have agreed that we will institute a retrieval system where implements will be picked up after every 3 throwers and no athletes should be in the field of play sector while another is throwing.
This is particularly important while the cage renovations are taking place. Until the new net with the additional panels is installed, the possibility of an errant throw is much greater.
How can you help?
1. Insure that the throwing sector is clear before you throw.
2. Hammer throwers only throw singles when 3 or more athletes are training at the same time
3. Discus throwers only throw doubles
4. Keep the circle clean by using towels and mats to wipe off shoes and implements
5. Stay behind the net when waiting to throw.
We are working hard to upgrade our facility and to make it a safe and first class environment.
Thank you for your support!
