Event Medical Coverage

The SMSCM can help sports and organizers to organize and contact medical coverage for their events. In order to aid in the recruitment of medical personnel, the SMSCM can send information to its member groups.

The type of medical coverage that is required at various events will vary depending on the scope of the competition. For this reason, the SMSCM has created an event coverage form that helps the sport to determine its medical needs for the event.

The SMSCM also has a publication entitled Medical Coverage for Multi-Sport Games that is an excellent resource for those organizing an event. To receive a free copy or to request other resources, please contact.

If you are in charge of stocking your own medical kit, follow this link to see an example of medical kit checklist.

Games / Events

The games committee is a committee of the Sport Medicine  & Science Council of Manitoba. It functions as an advisory body to the Council relating to matters of single or multi-sport games hosted within the Province of Manitoba. Additionally, in conjunction with the Medical committee of a multi-sport Games Host Society within Manitoba or the inter-Provincial Sport Medicine Network for a multi-sport Games hosted outside of Manitoba, the committee can advise in the coordination and provision of medical and paramedical service personnel for provincial, inter-provincial and international games.
