Sport Manitoba – To provide the best services possible to Manitobans, Sport Manitoba has restructured the provincial regional zones it recognizes and their boundaries. The previous seven regions (Norman, Parkland, Interlake, Eastman, Westman, Central and Winnipeg) are now divided into five regions (North, East, South, West and Winnipeg).  

In a continued effort to lead and support participation and achievement in sport by all Manitobans, Sport Manitoba began an extensive review back in early 2014 of sport programs and services in rural Manitoba.  A crucial component of the review was information from key community stakeholders throughout Manitoba’s six rural regions.  

Based on feedback from the review, Sport Manitoba evaluated its regional staffing structure to better meet the needs of regional sport development.  It was clear that more direct programming for coaches and athletes was the biggest area of support review participants suggested.  

“We executed a significant review of the services and programs we were delivering in Rural Manitoba”, said Laurel Read, Sport Manitoba’s Interim CEO. “Given the results of our rural review we reorganized our staffing structure in 2014.”

“Based on the Rural Review, Sport Manitoba created new regional positions called Coach & Athlete Development Coordinators,” said Read.  “Sport Manitoba restructured regional boundaries to allow for the addition of new regional staff servicing athletes and coaches specifically.  This led to the creation of new regional boundaries which are now being implemented.”

Two of the four regional staff positions have been hired. The third position is currently advertised.  The fourth coordinator is planned to be hired in the 2018/19 fiscal year.

The new regions recognized by Sport Manitoba are divided as follows:

East Region

Shannon Schade, Regional Sport Development Officer
Coach & Athlete Development Coordinator – position posted

The East Region is now defined as the former Interlake region and the part of the former Eastman region that is north of #1 highway .

West Region

Megan Foster, Regional Sport Development Officer
Brittany Bruinooge, Coach & Athlete Development Officer

The West Region amalgamates the Westman and Parkland regions with the following amendments:

  • Westlake-Gladstone and Glenella-Lansdowne has been removed from the Central Region and added to the new West Region.
  • Argyle has been removed from Westman and added to the South Region.

South Region

Leanne Traynor, Regional Sport Development Officer
Jacqueline Mazur, Coach & Athlete Development Coordinator

The South Region assumes the Central Region boundaries with the following amendments:

  • Westlake-Gladstone and Glenella-Lansdowne has been removed from our old Central boundary  and added to new West Region.
  • South gains the section of Eastman south of the # 1 Highway, extending to the Ontario border.
  • Argyle has been removed from Westman and added to the South.

The North Region assumes the previous Norman regional boundaries; 53rd parallel and north (No boundary changes).
