After ten years in the making, Sport Manitoba is turning the dream of the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre into reality. A first in Canada, this unique and advanced resource will offer new opportunities for our city and our province:
Phase 2, the Qualico Training Centre, is an 120,000+ sq ft training complex featuring:
- Training track for sport and community use
- Strength, conditioning, and testing areas
- Aerobic training centre
- Plyometric testing area
- Multi-purpose area, including three full convertible court spaces, and areas for individual sports, fitness conditioning, and workshops
The Qualico Training Centre provides seamless transition between training, coaching, testing, and therapy, which is a first in Canada. The sport expertise, fitness, training, and coaching housed in Phase I will be put to use in the fieldhouse to provide programming for local schools, community groups, amateur sport teams, elite athletes and those that live or work downtown.
When both phases are up and running, the Canada Games Sport of Life Centre will be used by 400,000 people every year on-site and by thousands more online.
