MABBA Competitor Funding Program

The goal of most competitors in our sport is to one day hit the national or international stage. Travelling to these shows is not an easy process and can be very expensive. The MABBA board recognizes the financial burden of travelling to national and international competitions and has implemented a new competitor funding program in order to provide financial assistance and increase Manitoba representation at these events.
