The Provincial Team (PT) is the top tier of Manitoba’s Athlete Development Program and is byinvitation only. The PT is geared towards athletes who are currently participating at National level competitions or Championships and are consistently demonstrating that they are striving towards top performances at those events, and have mastered the technical fundamentals to train and compete at a high level in both short track and long track.
The PT is designed for athletes training at the Provincial level as a pathway towards training at a High Performance Centre in Canada. The overall goal of the program is to ensure that our skaters are being adequately supported at the provincial level.
