Team Manitoba – In this daily media outlook, we’ll share stories from the Games, results and medal standings, Team Toba’s schedule, important links, photos, and more from each of the 10 days of the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games (WCSG). 

Team Manitoba is made up of over 300 of the province’s best young athletes, along with 44 coaches, 14 managers, four tech support, and 21 mission staff who will participate in 19 sports over the two phases of the Games. As the best in their age group, these young competitors have trained long and hard to be chosen to represent Manitoba at the 2019 Games. 

In a few hours, the athletes will board their buses and begin their journey to Swift Current. The first of the two phases officially kicks off tomorrow with two soccer games and a practice day for the rest of the athletes, followed by the Opening Ceremonies. The sports set to compete in phase one include basketball (M) & (F), canoe/kayak, cycling, soccer (M) & (F), female softball, swimming and beach volleyball.

Thank you in advance for your support of Team Manitoba!
