Welcome to our web site
The Manitoba Blind Sports Association has been the recognized not for profit sport governing body for blind and vision impaired Manitobans since 1976. Our mission is to encourage participation in sport at all levels of skill and ability and to develop athletes of a national and international calibre.
We are actively seeking new members for our upcoming season. We offer a variety of activities and new ones are being added on a regular basis. Note that our membership is limited to the blind, visually impaired and individuals who are in a supporting role for the blind and visually impaired. We understand that it is difficult and challenging for people with visual impairments to become active and participate in sports. If you or someone you know is blind or visually impaired and is interested in becoming a member and participating we encourage you to call our office at 204-925-5694.
