The Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Flight Deck Program is a charitable initiative intended to support youth involved in amateur athletics throughout Manitoba, and to recognize the volunteer efforts of their coaches and assistant coaches.
Sport can play a major role in the physical and emotional well-being of the children in our communities. The support and dedication of the coaches that volunteer their time to amateur sport in Manitoba is something Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries admires and wants to recognize through this program.
