Summer’s Coming,

Sport Changes

Summer is coming and, as always, changes are on the horizon. We move outside. Volleyball becomes beach volleyball, basketball heads to the outdoor courts and instead of playing hockey, some our province’s best young players – Bradley Schoonbaert, Riley Shamway, Brody Moffatt and Ashton Anderson – move outside to play ball.
Our May/June edition for 2018 will introduce you to some of Manitoba’s best and brightest young athletes. Our cover boy, Pembina Valley Orioles pitcher Seth Staple, a beautiful action shot taken by Dantin Reimer, sets us up for an issue that includes a complete preview of all eight MJBL teams. As well, we’ll meet Lucas Meyer, a basketball-volleyball who will play volleyball at the U of M next season and Erin Valgardson, a middle-distance runner who is off to North Dakota State in the fall. They are young, gifted and ready to compete and they speak volumes about the types of athletes we get to watch and enjoy in this province.  In this issue of SportsLife, we pay tribute to Manitoba’s best badminton players and bowlers, basketball coach Kirby Schepp and his star from Team Canada Justus Alleyn, Glenlawn grad Emily Potter who is off to the WNBA and Manitoba’s 2017 Athletes of the Year. Oh yes, and we also pay tribute to the latest inductees into the Manitoba Football Hall of Fame, the KJHL champion Peguis Juniors and 16-year-old volleyball star Erika Vermette.
So sit back and enjoy. We hope you meet someone you didn’t know before and learn about a sport you’d never thought about before. Winnipeg is blessed. It’s also Canada’s Place to Play.
