Coach education is a high priority at Sport Manitoba. Access to educational opportunities can be difficult for our coaches in rural areas. Sport Manitoba has indentified these challenges and is developing ways to address them so all our coaches can access quality education.
The Canada Games Sport for Life Centre was developed with our rural coaches in mind. The training rooms on the 2nd floor as well as the Conference Centre and Theatre in the lower level have been wired to be able to record and eventually webcast, live or delayed, professional development sessions across the province, truly making it a Sport Centre for the entire province.The development the Qualico Training Centre will greatly expand the sessions that can be offered.
On the ground in the seven regions of Sport Manitoba (Norman, Parkland, Westman, Central, Winnipeg, Eastman, and Interlake), Sport Manitoba is committed to working with our regional partners to create Coaching Academies. These Coaching Academies bring professional development sessions led by expert presenters out to all of the Sport Manitoba regions. This allows coaches to attend training opportunities in their own back yard.
We are thrilled to announce that Manitoba Lotteries is our title sponsor of the Manitoba Lotteries Regional Coach Academies for the second straight year. Thank you to Manitoba Lotteries for their fantastic support of coaching in Manitoba.
