Getting Started

We are glad to see your interest in Magic.

The Society of Young Magicians (SYM) is the junior section of the Society of American Magicians (SAM).
It was first brought to Canada by Bill Brace, with the first chapter being in Manitoba.
Since then, the SYM as been very active in Manitoba and is strongly supported by the adult’s Magic Club of Winnipeg.

We meet every two weeks during the school year at the Riverview Community Centre (RVCC) located at 90 Ashland Ave.  See our Calendar for specific dates.

There are two age groups.  The Mini-Wands for ages 7-9 meets at 12:30 pm and the Top Hats for ages 10-16 meets at 2:00 pm.
