The 2019 Canada Winter Games have wrapped up in Red Deer, Alberta and our men's and women's teams represented their province proudly. Our men's team ended up in 5th place overall, narrowly defeating Saskatchewan on the points tie breaker after all the matches left the teams tied in games one. Manitoba managed to win just 6 points more than our neighbours and retain bragging rights for another 4 years!

Our girls team, which was the youngest at the games, performed well beyond expectations and finished a very respectful 9th, defeating PEI in their last match up. Both the men's and women's teams had a memorable experience that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. They played extremely hard and improved as each match went on. Way to go TOBA!
