​Team Manitoba Names Mission Staff for 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg

Preparation for the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg is well underway for Team Manitoba, as they officially announced the Mission Staff tasked to help the host province make these their best Games yet.

Led by Chef de Mission Barry Moroz and Assistant Chef de Mission Marcie Halls-Stronciski, the Mission Staff features qualified individuals who were selected to give the best support possible for Team Toba athletes, coaches, and teams from now, leading up to, and during the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

The opportunity for a larger, well-tailored Mission Staff presents itself as a home-advantage for Manitoba in 2017.

“Mission Staff play a huge role in the success of any Games, and those who are making the commitment have helped us put together a great support system,” says Chef de Mission Barry Moroz. “We have a lot to be excited about with the experience and expertise this group brings to the team.”

Comprised of professional sport administrators, performance planners, communications specialists and volunteers, Mission Staff offer support to Team Manitoba athletes, coaches, and managers leading up to and during Games, and are a key link of communication between individual teams and the larger Team Manitoba. The organization and preparation they provide is integral for the performance and overall experience of everyone involved in the Games.
