Canada Summer Games

Save the Date! From July 28 to August 13, 2017 Winnipeg and Manitoba will host the Canada Summer Games. These Games will be the 50th Canada Games, and 2017 will be the 150th Anniversary of Canada – milestones of which to be proud.

Baseball will have a major place in the 2017 Summer Games, and we are looking for the support and participation of the Bonivital Baseball community. In fact, one of our own – Cal Hawley – is the Sport Chair for Baseball for the Games.

Baseball will run during the first week of the Games – from July 29 to August 4 – and will be hosted at three venues in Winnipeg – Whittier Park, Giants Field (Koskie Park) and Shaw Park. There will be many volunteer roles and opportunities that will need to be filled during the Games themselves and in the months leading up to the Games. The general call for volunteers for the 2017 Games will be launched in September 2016, but right now we are building the core venue and sport operations teams that will be responsible for planning and delivering the baseball program during the Games. There are various roles involved with these core planning teams, including volunteer and spectator services, medical, IT/technology, materials management, transportation, scheduling/results, minor officials, equipment, security and various other functions. While some of these roles have already been filled, we are continuing to build those teams to make sure that we are well-staffed to run and support three venues.

If you are interested in helping with the core teams, or would just like more information on the Games and the volunteer needs, you can contact Cal Hawley at baseballchair@2017canadagames.ca or (204) 479-0873.
