About The Team

Golf Manitoba provides enhanced training, development, and competitive opportunities for both aspiring and accomplished junior female and male athletes from the Golf Manitoba region.

The Team Manitoba program is 9-months in scope and encompasses fitness, sports psychology, nutrition, technique, equipment management and regional, multi-sport, and national level competition. Leaders in the field of sport science have been a part of building the program and continue in the ongoing execution of the program from the perspective of mental performance coaching, strength and conditioning, equipment as well as planning and periodization.
