MABO is pleased to share two professional development funding opportunities with its membership via Sport Manitoba and Basketball Manitoba to aid in providing funds to help support the attendance at an out-of-province official's camp.  

1. SPORT MANITOBA AND BASKETBALL MANITOBA SUPPORT 

MABO Members looking to attend a basketball official's camp outside of Manitoba in the near future can review the criteria found in the below two documents.  Up to $400 in funding per person is available and a total of six grants are available now through to March 31 of next year.  The camp opportunity needs to have some affiliation with a fellow national, provincial or similar official's body (including the USA) in order to qualify under the Sport Manitoba and Basketball Manitoba funding.  

Initial approval will be provided back to the successful applicant shortly after submission.  The successful applicant will be required to pay for the expenses in advance and then submit a final report (similar to the application) following the event for reimbursement of up to $400.00.  A total of six of these grants are currently available.  The funding for this initiative is being provided by both Sport Manitoba and Basketball Manitoba.  

Inquiries on this opportunity and the completed Funding Application Form are to go to Adam Wedlake at Basketball Manitoba (referred to in the below documents as the "PSO") via email to adam@basketballmanitoba.ca
