FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Sport Manitoba Announces New Staff for Rural Manitoba


Winnipeg, Manitoba - Sport Manitoba is pleased to announce the addition of a second Coach/Athlete Development Coordinator, Jacqueline Mazur who will be working out of Winkler.
 
Through this new position, Sport Manitoba can provide rural athletes with similar resources as Winnipeg athletes - without the trip to Winnipeg. Mazur will be mirroring the Canada Games Sport for Life Performance Centre in Winnipeg from her office in Winkler targeting rural athletes and coaches in southern Manitoba  
 
Sport Manitoba first announced the creation of a new position in rural Manitoba last year. The first Coach/Athlete Development Coordinator hired, Brittany Bruinooge, has been working out of Brandon. Sport Manitoba plans to add another Coach/Athlete Development Coordinator in rural Manitoba again next year.
 
Mazur is a Kinesiology graduate from the University of Manitoba. She is a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA and has a strong background in high performance athlete development. 
 
Mazur 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.
 
LTAD is the pathway Sport Manitoba uses for developing athletes and increasing overall participation in sport and physical activity.  This pathway includes guidelines for training, competition and recovery based on principles of human development and maturation.
 
Mazur 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.
