When Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association executive director Chad Falk announces the recipients of the Athlete of the Year Awards from each classification (A, AA, AAA, AAAA), along with the overall High School Male and Female Athlete of the Year on Wednesday during the noon hour at the Sport Manitoba Building in downtown Winnipeg, it will signal the official end of the 2021-22 sports school year.

It was almost but not quite a normal school year for student/athletes and teams after provincial championships were cancelled in the middle of March of 2020 because of the coronavirus which also affected competition for the entire 2020-21 school year.

The MHSAA held 40 Provincial Championships in 2021-22 and handed out 64 championship banners.

The championship season began with the Provincial High School Junior Varsity Volleyball Championships held in late November and came to an end earlier this month with the Provincial High School Track & Field Championships that took place at the University of Manitoba campus in south Winnipeg.

The Provincial A-AA-AAA High School Soccer Championships scheduled for October 15th & 16th were cancelled.

The Provincial High School Cross Country and Golf Championships were moved from fall to spring.
