Volunteers are vital to sports and recreation for several reasons, including:

  • Offering essential support in organizing events, coaching, officiating, and maintaining facilities.
  • Contributing to community engagement, making sports accessible to a wider audience.
  • Fostering inclusivity and enriching the overall experience for participants.
  • Promoting physical activity, teamwork, and social cohesion.

Volunteers are the backbone of the MASRC's programs, including Team Manitoba's North American Indigenous Games and National Aboriginal Hockey Championships teams. Our coaches, team managers, chaperons, and mission staff are all volunteer positions.

Coaching youth sports is vital as it promotes physical fitness, skill development, teamwork, and discipline. It builds confidence, instills values like sportsmanship and fair play, and teaches goal setting and emotional regulation. Coaches serve as mentors, fostering positive role models and contributing to a sense of community. They help children develop lifelong interests in sports, social skills, and time management abilities. Ultimately, coaching shapes well-rounded individuals, preparing them for future challenges and successes in sports and life.

Current Opportunities

Becoming an official varies depending on the sport. Start by identifying your desired sport and connect with your Provincial Sport Organization (PSO). For instance, if you aim to referee volleyball, reach out to Volleyball Manitoba; for hockey, contact Hockey Manitoba, or for softball umpiring, get in touch with the Softball Manitoba.

Most officiating courses require a nominal fee. If you are Indigenous, please consider reaching out to us and we may be able to assist you.
