You might just say that this is our forte! The construction of our world-class arena (Credit Union Place), 6-sheet curling rink and outdoor sportsplex, and our astounding volunteer experience has made Dauphin a forerunner in hosting events on a regional, provincial, and national scale.
Here is a list of some of the recent major sporting events held in Dauphin:
- 2004 MTS Manitoba Summer Games
- 2007 Safeway Select Provincial Men’s Curling Championship
- 2007 Team Canada Women’s Hockey Team World Championships Training Site
- 2008 MHSAA Provincial AAA Volleyball Championships
- 2008 MHSAA Provincial AAA Basketball Championships
- 2010 RBC Cup National Junior ‘A’ Hockey Championships
- 2011 Safeway Select Men’s Curling Championship
- 2012 Safeway Select Men’s Curling Championship
In addition to streamlined organization, flexibility, and a team approach, financial success is the common thread of the legacy of these events. Thanks to the success of the 2010 RBC Cup alone, Destination! Dauphin has established an Event Hosting Fund that was set up to support future major event acquisition, organization, or operation.
