Coach Selection & Profiles
There are five regions that athletes will represent at the Manitoba Games. The five regional boundaries throughout the province are:
The East Region is now defined as the former Interlake region and the part of the former Eastman region that is north of the #1 highway.
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
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).
The Winnipeg Region remains the same as the previous Winnipeg regional boundaries (No boundary changes, city of Winnipeg limits, not Perimeter HWY).
