Sport Manitoba and Manitoba Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association (MSSA) are partnering to celebrate the best athletes in Manitoba.  Once again, Sport Manitoba and MSSA will be combining their efforts and partnering to have one cohesive event that celebrates sport in Manitoba. The MSSA will continue to integrate their award presentations into Sport Manitoba's annual Night of Champions, presented by Manitoba Chicken.

The Coaching Manitoba Impact Awards aim to recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements and significant contributions coaches have made to their athletes and their sport through coaching.

The award does not reflect the accomplishments and contributions of a coach in any one year, rather the awards are designed to acknowledge the contributions a coach has made to his/her sport and athletes over a number of years.
