Sask Sport

Since its inception in 1972, Sask Sport Inc. has strived to ensure Saskatchewan residents of all ages can participate in the sport of their choice at their own ability level. By participating in sport, people are receiving much more than just a good workout - they are increasing their physical fitness levels, improving their health, decreasing healthcare costs, boosting the economy, and creating friendships that will last a lifetime. Children who participate in sport learn the value of hard work, dedication, teamwork and responsibility, which are values that will make them future leaders in our communities. Simply put, Sport - It's More Than A Game.

Historical Annual Reports

Sask Sport came into existence when the provincial amateur sport community realized there was a need to work together to develop common programs and fundraising initiatives. From a dozen organizations at its founding convention, Sask Sport Inc. has grown to more than 70 active and affiliate members, representing more than 300,000 registered participants throughout the province.

The scope of the amateur sport community in Saskatchewan is enormous. Member organizations coordinate sporting activities and distribute funds to clubs, teams and athletes in communities throughout the province. Provincial sport organizations also provide governance, professional guidance, ensure safety, provide insurance, set rules, raise funds, acquire sponsorships, and train athletes, coaches and officials. Saskatchewan is home to almost 26,000 trained coaches and over 15,000 certified officials.

These sport organizations provide program services to approximately 6,000 local sport organizations and teams, which support a variety of programs and services such as skills clinics, high performance training, sport science, medical services and leadership development. As well, sport organizations initiate programs that are directed at increasing participation by under-represented groups such as youth at risk, people with disabilities, aboriginal people, women, northern residents, the economically disadvantaged and seniors.

Each year more than 100 major sporting events are organized by provincial sport governing bodies and managed by volunteers in Saskatchewan. These events increase participation, have a significant economic impact to the host communities, provide an opportunity to promote the benefits of sport, and increase the opportunities for more Saskatchewan athletes to participate in these events.

Sask Sport is licensed to operate Sask Lotteries, and through an agreement with the Government of Saskatchewan, proceeds from Sask Lotteries are dedicated to sport, culture and recreation organizations to benefit communities throughout the province.

Proceeds from Sask Lotteries are deposited in the Sask Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation. Volunteer committees from Sask Sport, SaskCulture Inc., and Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Inc. adjudicate all requests made to the Trust Fund. Funding is provided to more than 12,000 volunteer, non-profit, sport, culture and recreation groups in the province.

The Sask Lotteries system has fostered the development of a tremendous volunteer network in Saskatchewan and is a major contributor to why the province is the volunteer capital of Canada. By providing a fundraiser for the sport, culture and recreation community, Saskatchewan has developed programs and services that provide a lifestyle that makes the province a great place to live. Its low administration costs, community support and responsibility for funding decisions have made Saskatchewan a model for the distribution of lottery proceeds.

Sask Sport operates the Admin Centre for Sport, Culture and Recreation. These Centres allow volunteer non-profit sport, culture, and recreation organizations the opportunity to collaborate and share resources and ideas. They also provide a variety of services including printing services, administrative support, payroll services, bookkeeping services, photocopying, website development, and affordable rent.
