Free Coach Development Seminars
Coaches from all Sports Welcome!
||Hello Everyone, Happy New Year! Please forward this message to all of your coaches.
I would like to invite youth coaches of all sports to a free Long Term Athlete Development session on Tuesday, February 5, 7:15 - 8:30 p.m., at West St. Paul School (3740 Main Street). Sheldon Reynolds, Coach Education Coordinator at Coaching Manitoba will lead us through a discussion of LTAD and present practical activities that coaches can use with their athletes that enhance fundamental movement skills and speed development. Coaches need to dress properly for activities and email me to register firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Coaches, please indicate what sport you are involved with and what age(s) your athletes are. The following information was taken from the CS4L website...
"Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) is a movement to improve the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. CS4L links sport, education, recreation and health and aligns community, provincial and national programming. LTAD is a seven-stage training, competition and recovery pathway guiding an individual’s experience in sport and physical activity from infancy through all phases of adulthood. CS4L, with LTAD, represents a paradigm shift in the way Canadians lead and deliver sport and physical activity in Canada".
I hope to see you there!

New Sign Nearing Completion
Our Vision 2010 upgrade project winds down with the final installation; a new sign! We hope to have the message centre running soon as important announcements will appear there.
As part of the three-year project extensive work was done at the arena and club to upgrade lighting and electrical, the washrooms, and a new magnificent sign replaces the faded and dilapiated one.
Vision 2010 compliments other capital works that were undertaken since 2010 including a new multi-purspose field, and outdoor tennis and basketball courts.
The Maples facility is nearing turn of the century standards and although the MRAI has come a long way over the last three years, critical work remains to take us to 2012 and beyond. GO TEAM!!!
New Outdoor Benches Installed
We're pleased to announce that new benches have been installed on the paved pathway adjacent to the front field facing Adsum. The installation includes four benches, a picnic table, small retaining walls and a crushed gravel walkway. Up to now our visiting seniors have had to sit on the ground so the benches are welcome addition which provides patrons a cozy nook in which to congregate. We'd like to thank Devi Sharma for her assistance in raising the funding for the project.
Court Renovations Complete!!!
The new outdoor basketball and tennis courts are ready to use. We welcome everyone in the community to enjoy these magnificent new facilities and we'd like to thank the Maples board for their tireless fundraising efforts.
