Information Overview:

The Archers & Bowhunters Association of Manitoba is proud to be a part of the 2018 Manitoba Games, to be hosted in Thompson, MB in Winter 2018.

The 2018 Manitoba Winter Games Powered by Manitoba Hydro will be held in Thompson from March 4-10, 2018. The Games are a competitive, developmental opportunity for selected sports to advance their Provincial Sport Organization’s long term athlete and coach development plans. The age or stage selected generally complies with the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Train to Train stage of development.

The Games help to identify Manitoba athletes who have the potential to advance to higher levels of competition: Provincial Team, National Competitions, and the Canada and Western Canada Games.
