Postponement of Niagara 2021 Canada Games
The Niagara 2021 Canada Games Host Society has announced the postponement of the Games to 2022.
While this is important news with huge impact, we believe the decision was taken in best interests and for the good of everyone involved.
Let's start planning for 2022!

Note: All questions concerning the impact on the age groups/cohort (and all other questions) for the 2022 Canada Games will have to wait for Swimming Canada to analyze the situation and make a decision on the questions according to different parameters of their own. We will provide updates as they are received.
Back to Swimming
All Manitoba swimming clubs are back to swimming or will be in the next few weeks.
We wish everyone a safe start to the season.
Swim Manitoba understands the return to swimming with smaller cohort groupings is far less than ideal from a financial aspect. We are working with our Sport Partners to find solutions to assist clubs during this season’s return to swimming, while maintaining protocols to protect our members.
Back to Competition
Swim Manitoba will meet with the Manitoba Swimming Coach Association (MSCA), the City of Winnipeg, and the Manitoba Health Authority in the coming weeks to plan scenarios for racing opportunities during this unconventional season.
Also, Swimming Canada will release some guidelines regarding the return to competition in the next weeks.
Return to Play version 4
A new updated version of the Return to Play document will be available before the end of the month.
NCCP Course – Swimming 101
Swim Manitoba will be offering it's first ever online NCCP Swimming 101 course. The course will take place over two weekends, September 26-27, as well as October 3 and 4.
We are also pleased to note that the 10 spots available have all been filled.
