Sport Manitoba is pleased to announce the creation of a new position in rural Manitoba called Coach/Athlete Development Coordinator. This position brings the support and services currently offered out of the Sport for Life Centre in Winnipeg to rural Manitoba.

The first Coach/Athlete Development Coordinator to be hired is Brittany Bruinooge. A Kinesiology graduate from the University of Manitoba, she is a certified Athletic Therapist and CSEP Personal Trainer. Bruinooge will be stationed in Brandon. Sport Manitoba will add Coach/Athlete Development Coordinators in other major rural Manitoba centers in the future.

“We undertook a significant review of the services and programs we were delivering in Rural Manitoba and we discovered a real need for the support this new Coach/Athlete Development Coordinator position will provide”, said Jeff Hnatiuk, President and CEO Sport Manitoba. “Given the results of our rural review and the tremendous success of the Sport for Life Centre we reorganized our structure to bring Sport for Life Centre services and support out into rural Manitoba.”

Bruinooge will provide a collection of services and mechanisms targeting athletes in the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Learn to Train and Train to Train stages to develop the mental, physical, technical and tactical requirements to achieve their desired performance outcomes.

Bruinooge will also target coaches by bringing more learning opportunities, courses and workshops to rural Manitoba. She will help facilitate communication with coaches to ensure Sport Manitoba is providing superior support and services to our rural athletes.
