The Manitoba Winter Games Archery Event is seeking female and male archers aged 16 & Under with intermediate to advance skills in recurve or compound archery. The Manitoba Winter Games is a fantastic athletic and character building experience for youth, as they will practice, travel and compete with their fellow team members to represent their home region in Manitoba. This exciting developmental event will take place in Thompson, MB and will include a 3 three day archery tournament starting March 4, 2018. Whether you are a bowhunter or recreational archer with limited competition experience, we encourage you to participate in your regional preparation camps!
The preparation camps (“Prep Camps”) are hosted by regional coaches and managers with National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) training and is geared toward development of archery skills and introduction to competition. The Prep Camps will prepare archers for the regional qualifier hosted in December 2017.
One of best parts about the Manitoba Winter Games Archery Event is the low cost for the opportunity to participate! There is no cost associated to the participation in the Regional Prep Camps & Qualifier.
Please note, it is not mandatory to attend both Prep Camps, but it is recommended.

Technical Package (Version 3.0 – April 11, 2017)
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.
Participation in the Manitoba Games begins with regional try outs. Regional teams of approximately 200 athletes, coaches, and managers go on to participate in the Provincial Finals.
The Manitoba Games Powered by Manitoba Hydro are often an athlete’s first multi-sport Games experience. 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. After competing in the Manitoba Games, many athletes move on to become part of Team Manitoba.
