    Sport Manitoba Kicks off Capital Campaign for Phase 2 of Sport for Life Centre


    Sport Manitoba has formally announced details on the new capital campaign to establish a new home to serve the province - the Sport for Life Centre. The Sport for Life Centre will profoundly improve access to sport and sport training across Manitoba.  A first in Canada, the Centre will house sport expertise, training space and tools, exercise and sport facilities, therapeutic space, research capabilities and the Hall of Fame in one central location.






    The Sport For Life Centre Will:

    Develop LeadersWith an emphasis on training, mentoring and coaching, the Centre will develop leaders across the province who will help our next generation succeed - in sport and in life.

    Train Athletes, Coaches and Volunteers
    Manitoba’s athletes, coaches and teams - at all levels - will grow and develop using this top-notch, year-round training facility. It will combine groundbreaking opportunities in coaching, athletic therapy, fitness testing, nutrition and sports psychology, which will result in success on provincial, national, and world stages. Coaching and training resources will also be available online and via web-conferencing so that all Manitobans can benefit.

    Help Kids Join the Right Team
    Sport programming and leadership development will be provided for underserved youth, providing an alternative to gangs.

    Revitalize Downtown Winnipeg
    The Sport for Life Centre is centrally located and will invigorate Winnipeg’s inner city by attracting 400,000 people downtown each year.

    Bring Sports Heroes to Life
    The new and interactive Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame & Museum will serve as a source for inspiration, as will athletes of all levels training together in the same facility.

    Build Healthy Communities
    The Sport for Life Centre will be a one-stop resource that offers healthy alternatives for all ages. The same skills that aid sport development translate into valuable life skills and, in turn, a healthier community.

    The Sport for Life Centre is a $34.3 million facility that focuses on learning, sharing, mentoring and growing through sport.  The Sport for Life Centre is a new home from which Sport Manitoba will serve the province. With this Centre, Sport Manitoba has the opportunity to dramatically increase its reach and its impact.

    The Sport for Life Centre combines sport expertise, training space and tools, exercise and sport facilities, therapeutic space, research capabilities and the Hall of Fame in one central location.

    This allows Sport Manitoba to:

    • Create programming to introduce new communities to sport and healthy living.
    • Make sport opportunities accessible in Winnipeg's core area.
    • Provide groundbreaking coaching and training opportunities for amateur and elite athletes, available on-site or on-line.
    • Create a coaching academy to build community resources.
    • Train generations of leaders.
    • Bring Manitoba sports heroes to life.
    • The Sport for Life Centre will profoundly improve access to sport and sport training in Manitoba.

    To ensure we can build the Centre, we need to raise $6 million from private donations. Please consider a significant donation today.
