2023 Canada Winter Games Team Named

Archery Manitoba is pleased to announce Team Manitoba Archery for the Canada Winter Games has been named.

The archers were named following an extensive qualification period consisting of numerous tournaments and matchplay events in the Westman and Winnipeg Regions. All eights athletes selected were ranked in the top 2 of our Canada Winter Games ranking list, that included indoor 18M qualifying events between January 1, and November 27, 2022.

The four archers selected as primary athletes are Emily Love, Ryder Wilson, Chyler Sanders and Ryan Cherniak, selected as their alternates are, respectively, Cleo Wermann-Thorn, Kadin Giebelhaus, Bailey Mathers, and Ethan Hall.  After consideration, Ethan Hall has decided to decline to the Compound Male Alternate spot to focus on his 3D training and competition goals leading him to the 2023 North American Indigenous Games this summer in Halifax.  The remaining seven athletes have committed to high frequency technical and fitness training plans, which includes a Canada Winter Games prep camp and competition in Saskatoon in January.

The current team brings strong performance potential to the games, in keeping with a tradition of Manitoba success at the Canada Winter Games. Love & Wilson, both currently competing in the U18 division have had recent national success with Emily placing 5th in the 2022 Indoor Nationals, and Ryder taking home bronze at this summers outdoor nationals. They are backed up by two U21 division archers in Giebelhaus and Wermann-Thorn, both of who bring strong value in their experience competing at the last Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, Alberta in 2019.

Our primary compound archers are both currently competing in the U21 division and have years of experience at the national and international levels. Cherniak has been a member of Team Manitoba for over 6 years and has earned podium finishes at numerous national championships. Sanders, a team member since 2018, has competed at the Manitoba Games, Canadian Championships, Youth Continental Championships and two World Archery Youth Championships. Female Compound Alternate Bailey Mathers is a U18 archer who has a depth of experience in her past several years as provincial team member. Bailey finished 2nd at this summers national championships and attended her first international event as a member of Team Canada at the Youth Pan American Championships.

The Canada Winter Games run from Feb. 18 to March 5 in Charlottetown, PEI. Archery runs in the second week, from Feb. 25 to March 4 and consists of qualification rounds followed by match-play eliminations in individual and mixed team events.  To follow along, check out this link: https://cg2023.gems.pro/Result/Sport_List.aspx?SetLanguage=en-CA&Gems_ScreenWidth=1920&Gems_ScreenHeight=1080&Gems_ScreenAvailWidth=1920&Gems_ScreenAvailHeight=1055

Team Toba Archery at the Canada Winter Games

Article from: https://www.sportmanitoba.ca/archery-2023-canada-winter-games/

Archery Head Coach Avril Hatherell has been to the Canada Games as an athlete, a manager, and will now experience the event as a coach in PEI.

Involved in the sport for 25 years, one of the things she loves about archery is that it’s a personal sport with lots of room for growth and development.

“It lets you compete with people across the country in a way that you don’t in other sports. And they mix the ages all together when you’re shooting, so you get to shoot with older people and younger people,” said Avril.

 

Team Toba’s Archers

Four archers—one in each equipment category and each gender—will represent The Herd on the ranges in PEI.

“The equipment categories for archery are recurve, which are the long, Olympic bows that you see,” said Avril. “And then the compound [bows] have pulleys at the top and bottom, which make them faster.”

They’ll also have four alternates for a total of eight athletes who will be training together this winter.

“The team will be decided at the end of November and that’s based on their three highest scores they’ve shot, mostly this fall, or earlier this year,” said Avril.

Once 2023 arrives, they’ll be kicking it up a notch, including planning a training camp with a couple other provinces in the middle of January.

“[They’ll be] getting some more practice with shooting against other people and shooting some match play with people they will probably see at Canada Games. So, getting comfortable with that, also getting them comfortable with shooting somewhere they’re not used to shooting, because that does play a factor as well.”



Post-Games: What’s Next?

The journey for athletes doesn’t need to end at the Canada Games. For many, there are opportunities beyond this event.

For these archers, they could qualify to go to the youth world championships — a really big event typically held in another country.

“We’re talking hundreds of athletes who are all shooting the same categories,” said Avril. “Very different, very fun, and you get to make some really great friendships across the world. And it also kind of prepares you for moving up a category into the senior category, where you’re also exposed to the same thing as well.”

Another opportunity is scholarships!

“We’ve also had a couple of athletes from Winnipeg who’ve got scholarships from the U.S. to go to the colleges to do archery. So I think some of the archers coming up going to the Games would definitely qualify for that, if that’s something that interests them.”

 

Follow Along

“I think it’s a really great experience for athletes, and it’s something they’ll remember their whole archery careers, or even if they finish with archery and move on, they’ll think ‘Oh yeah, that time that i went to Canada Games and that was so much fun’.”

 

Watch archery take the national stage and follow The Herd on social media!
