Team Manitoba Names Mission Staff for 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer

Once again, Team Manitoba is on the road to Games, as the team has officially announced the group of Mission Staff who will help guide the athletes, coaches and managers chosen to represent Team Toba to improve on our best Games yet at the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, Alberta. 

The Toba team will be led by Chef de Mission Marcie Halls-Stronciski, along with Assistant Chef Pete Conway - two leaders with years of Games experience to their names throughout their tenure at Sport Manitoba. The rest of the Mission Staff are made up of 18 individuals who are assigned to various duties including sport, medical, communications, logistics, and managing the Team Toba office. Each member of the team bring a set of skills and experience chosen carefully to provide Team Manitoba with the best support possible. 

The group met on April 28th to kick things into gear for this winter, and are now working hard to prepare the team to build off momentum of Team Manitoba's best ever finish at the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg.
