2020 Manitoba Summer Games

The Manitoba Games powered by Manitoba Hydro are the province’s largest ongoing multi-sport program bringing together participants from across the province. The Games are held every two years and alternate between summer and winter sports events. Each set of Games involve upwards of 7,500 athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers.

Sport is the reason for staging the Manitoba Games Powered by Manitoba Hydro. 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 Manitoba Games Powered by Manitoba Hydro 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 Manitoba Games, many athletes move on to become part of Team Manitoba.

The previous seven regions (Norman, Parkland, Interlake, Eastman, Westman, Central and Winnipeg) will now be divided into five regions (North, East, South, West and Winnipeg). For more information on the NEW Regional Boundaries please click here.
