Welcome to the Dairy Farmers of Manitoba Provincial Track & Field Championships. We know that this event will provide all participants with an exciting and special memory of their high school track and field days.

Over 9,000 student athletes participate in high school track & field province wide, and the 1,500 athletes who advance to this championship are to be congratulated. We wish you success in attaining your goal to reach the podium and be rated as one of the best in Manitoba. We hope that this may be a stepping stone to regional, national, and international events.

The MHSAA would like to extend appreciation to our major partner, the Dairy Farmers of Manitoba for their support. Other partners include Manitoba’s Credit Unions, Boston Pizza, Luscious Orange, Manitoba Hydro, Payworks, Hudl, and Sport Manitoba.

The MHSAA would also like to thank the Manitoba Track & Field Officials Association, Athletics Manitoba, as well as the many volunteer teacher/coaches and hundreds of student volunteers. Without their support, a meet of this magnitude would not be possible to host. 

Congratulations to all participants. We hope you have a great couple of days. Have Fun!

Chad Falk
Executive Director

be trials for the top eight competitors. Special rules approved by the MHSAA will take precedence over the rules above.

false start. Any athlete(s) making further false starts in the race shall be disqualified from the race.

At all MHSAA Provincial Championships, interzone and wildcard games, participants must have a teacher from the school division in attendance as a supervisor, or they will not be allowed to compete. In individual sports where it may be unrealistic for one teacher to accompany one student, the zone may designate teacher supervisors for athletes. This must be a written request, signed by each principal involved, and approved by the MHSAA, well in advance. The designated teacher supervisor should have a copy of the letter, with them during the championship.

Teachers employed in the school division where they are coaching a team, may be the supervisor for that team. The responsibility rests with the school to ensure that
supervisor(s) are fully acquainted with all MHSAA rules, regulations, and consequences. Violation of this rule may result in a fine up to a maximum of $200.

The MHSAA, in cases of severe weather disruptions, may have to make decisions as to the possible rescheduling of Provincial Championships. MHSAA decisions will be
based on Environment Canada weather reports, the Manitoba Highway reports and weather conditions at the host site. Information on possible schedule changes will be posted on the host website between 6:30 and 7:00 am on the day of the Championship. Schools will also be emailed any changes. In case of inclement weather, schools should refrain from travelling to Provincial Championships until they receive notification from the MHSAA Assistant Executive Director with instructions and updated scheduling. Schools making a
decision to travel prior to receiving notification from MHSAA Assistant Executive Director do so at their own risk and will be responsible for their travel and hotel costs,
should the event be postponed or changed.

Many schools travel to Provincial Championships on the day prior to the championship beginning. In cases where most schools are already at the host site, the convenor along with MHSAA assistant director will try to modify schedules to accommodate teams that will be arriving later due to weather conditions.
