Sport Manitoba – WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Today at the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre $19,000 in academic scholarships were presented to fourteen high school students, six university students, and four Manitoba coaches. The presentations included the Manitoba Foundation for Sport Scholarships, Bud Tinsley Sport Leadership Scholarship, Coaching Manitoba Bursaries, and Princess Royal Pan Am Scholarships.

Also presented was the Manitoba Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association (MSSA) Jack Matheson Award which provides $750 to post-secondary students who demonstrate an interest in a career in one or more of the following careers: sports writing, sports broadcasting, sports media production or sports public relations. 

The Manitoba Foundation for Sports scholarship program administered by Sport Manitoba announced a new scholarship this year. Jennifer Fleming created the Fleming Family Hockey Coach Scholarship, in memory of her father Jake Fleming and her brother Wayne Fleming, to recognize an upcoming Manitoba hockey coach who shows similar coaching and leadership traits that were characteristic of both Jake and Wayne.

“Teaching, coaching, and sharing the game of hockey was not only a passion for my Dad Jake and brother Wayne, it was ultimately their life’s work, pleasure and reward,” said Jennifer Fleming. “This scholarship is a way to carry forward their passion to the next generation of coaches.”

The Fleming Family Hockey Coach scholarship will be presented annually to a student who has demonstrated a commitment to coaching hockey in Manitoba. The goal is to encourage students to continue coaching hockey while attending a post-secondary institution and beyond. The $1,200 scholarship will be applied to the recipient’s tuition.

Applications for the Fleming Family Hockey Coach scholarship open today and are available at www.sportmanitoba.ca/scholarships.  Application deadline is Friday September 15, 2017.
