Sport is the reason for staging the Power Smart Manitoba Games. The Games are a competitive, developmental opportunity for select sports to advance Provincial Sport Organization’s long term athlete and coach development plans. The age or stage selected generally complies with the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Learn to Train or Train to Train stage of development. Learn more about LTAD here.
The Power Smart Manitoba Games are often an athlete's first multi-sport Games experience. The Games help to identify Manitoba athletes who have the potential to advance to higher levels of competition: Provincial Team, National Competitions, and the Canada and Western Canada Games. After competing in the Power Smart Manitoba Games, many athletes move on to become part of Team Manitoba.
The 2020 Power Smart Manitoba Summer Games sports will be announced in January 2018.
