Cheer Manitoba is committed to increased education, awareness, and established protocols that will assist you in gaining the knowledge and skills required ensuring the safety of your athletes. We can all work together to ensure a safe sport environment.

Concussion Conversations (Youtube Video)
We talked about all things "concussion" with those who've experienced them first hand - our athletes. Hear the stories of Cassidy Nicholls, Jordan Reeves, Amber Balcaen, and Devan Chisholm, local grassroots and professional athletes who've participated in a wide range of sports and who all know what it's like to have a concussion and live with its impact.
With this video and our existing concussion resources, Sport Manitoba is committed to increasing education and awareness that will assist in gaining the knowledge and skills required to ensure the safety of Manitoba's athletes. We all need to work together to ensure a safe sport environment and hope these resources can equip you with the tools you need to feel confident in working towards that goal.
