Newsletter - September 24
Welcome Back to a New Season!
Swim Manitoba is happy to see all its clubs back at the pool!
The staff and the Board of Directors would like to wish everyone a Happy Season!
Although we expect to have to adapt during this season to public health orders as they change during the season, we are confident that with the experience gained during the last 18 months, we will be able to cope more easily, and adapt quickly and effectively.
The competition calendar is now available on our website. The competition format may change in order to limit the number of participants and comply with public health orders, but we will do our best to provide competitive quality events in a safe manner for our swimmers.

Our Awareness Campaign is now up and running and will continue during the fall and beyond.
Follow us on our social networks and our website and share in large numbers!
National Coaches Week
September 18 to 26 is the National Coaches Week. Swim Manitoba wants to thank all the coaches in the province that make our sport possible, by helping our swimmers learn to swim and reach their full potential.
You are not only playing an indispensable role in our sport, but you are also playing an indispensable role in the lives of thousands of children, adolescents and young adults.
Thank you, coach!
Swim Manitoba is hosting a coaches’ conference October 15-16-17. Coaches of all levels are encouraged to attend!
