Sport and life. The values we learn through sport serve us not only
on the arena, rink or court, they serve us well in life. Where else do
we learn how to become part of a team, and perfect the ability to win
and lose gracefully?

Sport is a teacher. It teaches determination, builds the will to
overcome and succeed, and creates an understanding that we can set goals
and achieve them.sportforlifecentrefront

Sport is a mentor. The encouragement, words of wisdom and ideas for
improvement we receive from coaches and volunteers are applied to many
facets of our lives and continue to reverberate in our minds, long after
the match has ended.

Now imagine bringing together all the very best elements of sport
under one roof. The resources, the training, the education and
technology, the practice field, even the history of our greatest
athletes all gathered in one accessible and central location.

It was this vision that motivated the creation of the new Sport for
Life Centre. A centre for everyone - from adults and children of all
ages, to volunteer coaches, officials, and high performance athletes.
Comprised of an unprecedented array of services and expertise, this
advanced approach offers more than the sum of its parts.

Its' the opportunity for high performance athletes to act as role
models for local children. It's about using new technology and
programming to reach into neighborhoods where programs and sport are
woefully lacking and engaging Manitobans in activity that provides a
sense of belonging. It's about the health and well-being of our
community and finding new ways to bring out the best in people.

Sport is for Life.
