School’s Over, Let’s Get Outside
It’s that time of year here at SportsLife when we do our best to be out of doors and away from our devices as much as possible.
It’s also the time of year when our athletes ditch the rink and the gym for a little softball, baseball, rugby, football,
ultimate, beach volleyball and golf. It’s summer, in Manitoba we try to make the best of it.
In this, the latest edition of SportsLife, we honour the stars of the 2017-2018 indoor season – our best volleyball players, a basketball program called Ignite (our cover subject), the 2018 Induction Class of the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame and the best badminton players in the country. However, we also fete the thousands of participants in the 2018 Manitoba Marathon – the 40th Anniversary, by the way. We set you up for the 2018 Winnipeg High School Football League season with the entire league schedule and pay tribute to three former WHSL stars who will represent Canada at the World Junior Championship this month. And we also let you know everything you need to know about the 2018 World Men’s and Women’s Masters Ultimate Club Championships which will be held at Maple Grove Rugby Park and Investors Group Field at the end of July.
It’s a busy month and a busy summer and before you head back indoors in September, enjoy Manitoba’s outdoor
sporting season and take a copy of SportsLife with you to the lake.
