CurlManitoba membership fees are set each year by the CurlManitoba Board of Directors.
Membership Fees 2016-17
CurlManitoba would like to thank all the clubs over the last few years that have embraced the change in collection of information and fee structure for curling in Manitoba. CurlManitoba Provincial funders have been extremely pleased that CurlManitoba has been able to provide accurate demographic information. This would not be possible without the collaboration of clubs, volunteers and club managers.
The Board of CurlManitoba has recently approved some new development initiatives which will lead to increased participation in all clubs across Manitoba. As per the strategic priorities of CurlManitoba promotion and development continue to increase in importance for CurlManitoba and are a number one priority as we continue into the future.
CurlManitoba membership fees will remain the same for the 2016/17 curling season. CurlManitoba is able to announce that the membership will be $6 dollars per participant member including GST.
As per the CurlManitoba Membership policy, all clubs are being notified prior to December 31, 2015 in preparation for the 2016/17 season.
CurlManitoba is proud to announce establishment of a Regional Mentorship program available to curling clubs in Manitoba. This mentorship program is designed to develop athletes, coaches and umpires in all sport regions throughout Manitoba. At the present time our sport regions do not have the resources they need to be able to have ready access to assistance. This kind of development effort is necessary to help re-build the sport of curling at the club and grassroots level. The CurlManitoba regional Mentorship program will enable CurlManitoba to have resources in all 7 regions throughout Manitoba and fill the needs of all our athletes at all levels of curling.
CurlManitoba will continue to strive to increase partner benefits and pass along programs to the clubs.
