For Clubs and Skating Schools seeking to offer a competition opportunity in Manitoba that is not a Section Competition (ie wishing to run a ‘FunSkate’) please see the below information:

1.) For the 2022-23 competition season, no competitions will be sanctioned if they fall within 11 days of the start or conclusion, of a Section event. For the 2023-24 competition season, NO competitions will be sanctioned if they fall within 3 weeks of the start, or end, of a Section run event.

2.) Non section run competitions MUST have their registration deadline a minimum of three (3) weeks before the start of the competition to ensure adequate time for the officials and volunteers involved to process and prepare.

3.) Competition announcements for non Section run events must be submitted to skate.admin@sportmanitoba.ca for distribution to the Events Management Committee no later than ten (10) weeks before the start of the competition.
