Saskatchewan Program for Athletic Excellence

The purpose of the Saskatchewan Program for Athletic Excellence is to provide additional direct financial assistance to Saskatchewan's High Performance Athletes who are carded at the national level by Sport Canada. Specific objectives of the program are:

  • To help athletes continue their pursuit of athletic excellence at the highest levels of national and international competition;
  • To enable athletes to successfully pursue excellence in sport while fulfilling their educational goals;
  • To increase athlete access to high performance coaching and sports science practitioners;
  • To enhance training and competitive opportunities available to athletes.

Eligibility - Who Can Apply?

  1. Athlete must be training in Saskatchewan, exceptions will be made providing that the athlete can substantiate one of the following:

    • He/She is training out of province as part of a formal NSO-sanctioned training program;
    • That he/she cannot receive the required level of training in Saskatchewan and as a result has relocated out of the province (i.e. due to lack of facilities, coaching, competition, national team requirements);
    • That he/she is attending a post-secondary institution out-of-province;
    • Other extenuating circumstances that require the athlete to be out of the province.

  2. The athlete must be able to demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the Canadian Sport Centre Management Committee, they are a product of the Saskatchewan sport system.
