Concussions can occur while participating in any sport or recreational activity. Since the circumstances under which a concussion can occur are so varied, it’s important for all coaches, parents, and athletes to be aware of the signs, symptoms, and what to do if a concussion occurs. Please visit our Concussion Awareness page to learn more. RGM has also created a sport-specific strategy to help guide athletes returning to gymnastics practice after a concussion. Thank you to Dr. Gail Sawa and RGM’s Coaching Chair, Emily Richard for their work on this document.

Rhythmic Gymnastics needs your help to recognize the invaluable contributions of our volunteer community.
If you have worked alongside or know an outstanding individual who has contributed their time and efforts to the love of Rhythmic Gymnastics, RGM would appreciate if you could submit the following:
- The names of one or two outstanding volunteers from a Manitoba club who, through their commitment of time and talent have had a positive impact on the operation of the organization. Please provide a brief description of how their actions have benefited their Club and its athletes.
- The name of one outstanding individual whose dedication, energy and love for the sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics qualifies them to be considered for the Irene Okano Special Recognition Award. This award is dedicated to those special volunteers who have contributed “above-and-beyond” to the sport of RG province-wide and your nomination letter should include details to support your selection.
- Long term volunteers can be recognized through Sport Manitoba’s Order of Sport Excellence.
Please submit your nominations to the RGM office by September 21 so that we have enough time to make appropriate plans for the recognition ceremony.
