Saskatchewan Leading The Way With Safe Sport Campaign

The Government of Saskatchewan and Sask Sport Inc. have teamed up to launch a joint marketing campaign to increase awareness on the tools and resources available to assist coaches, athletes and parents on bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination in sport.

“Thanks to the dedication of Sask Sport and the provincial sport organizations, coaches, parents and athletes, this campaign compliments the hard work already underway,” said Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky.

“This effort has created a strong foundation for helping to prevent, identify and effectively deal with bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination, and we are eager to share the important resources and information in order to continue to help keep sport safe, healthy and fun in Saskatchewan,” said volunteer Board Chair of Sask Sport Inc., Kenric Exner

Athlete of the Month Award
After setting World and Canadian records at the Disabled World Water Ski Championships, Saskatoon’s Nolan Barnes has been named Sask Sport Inc.’s September Athlete of the Month.

Barnes set world record in the MP2 Slalom and a Canadian record in the MP2 Jump at the 2019 Disabled World Water Ski Championship in Skarnes, Norway this summer. His records were ratified in September.


Sask Sport welcomes new chair, board members

Kenric Exner was elected Chair of Sask Sport Inc. at the organization’s Annual General Meeting on June 15.

Exner has been a member of Sask Sport’s Board of Directors since 2017, when he was nominated by the Saskatchewan Hockey Association. At the AGM, the sport federation’s membership also elected four new members to its Board of Directors:

  • Julie Brandt (Saskatchewan Games Council)
  • Lance Dudar (Triathlon Saskatchewan)
  • Murray Stroeder (CURLSASK)
  • Kim Wudrick (Football Saskatchewan)

    “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our members for their outstanding efforts, as well as all of the volunteers who contribute to amateur sport,” outgoing Chair Leslie Blyth told delegates at the meeting.

    “All of you play a crucial role in developing and delivering quality sport for people and communities across Saskatchewan. Sask Sport’s key accomplishments from this past year are largely a result of your teamwork and passion for sport.” 

    In total, the Board of Directors consists of 13 volunteer board members who help frame Sask Sport’s values, vision and mission and identify the priority needs of the organization’s members.

    Salina Barry, a long-time Sask Sport employee and member of the organization’s executive team, is leaving after three decades of dedicated service.

    Barry, Chief Financial Officer, retired from the organization on June 30.

    “I’m proud to have helped retain the lottery as the fundraiser for sport, culture and recreation and contribute to the reputation of Sask Sport as a reliable, accountable organization,” said Barry, who started as a Financial Supervisor in the late 1980s.

    Renewed Lottery Agreement to Benefit Saskatchewan Communities

    The Honourable Gene Makowsky, Parks, Culture and Sport Minister, announced a renewed lottery agreement today, ensuring that sport, culture and recreation organizations will continue to receive and benefit from Saskatchewan Lotteries proceeds over the next five years.

    “We fully support the new lottery agreement, and look forward to another five years working with our partners to build active, healthy communities in Saskatchewan,” Sask Sport Chair, Leslie Blyth said. “Long-term planning is essential to non-profit organizations and their ability to deliver quality, sustainable programs, services and events. This agreement will continue to positively impact our communities and provide more opportunities for all. Together, we all win!”

    Athlete of the Year recipients announced

    Rising local stars, international standouts and high-performance competitors are among the recipients of Sask Sport Inc.'s 2018 Athlete of the Year Awards.

    They include Kurt Oatway, a Paralympic gold medallist from Regina, and Shelby Newkirk, a para swimming world record holder from Saskatoon.

    Complete details about the Female and Male, Youth-Female and Male, Master and Team award winners are available below. Each recipient will be honoured March 28 at the Saskatchewan Sport Awards alongside previously announced Coach Dedication, Coach of the Year, Official and Volunteer award recipients.

    Making a Difference through Adaptive Sport in Saskatchewan
    Working Together, for All

    Sask Sport Inc. is investing in the future of Adaptive and Parasport in Saskatchewan. Throughout the coming months, Sask Sport will collaborate with provincial sport governing bodies and identified affiliate stakeholders to explore ways to champion efficiency and sustainable practices in the Saskatchewan adaptive sport system. This joint effort aims to create a strong and sustainable Adaptive Sport Strategy that supports the goals and objectives of the 2017-2021 Sask Sport Strategic Plan, notably the areas of enhanced participation, excellence, capacity and collaboration in Saskatchewan sport.

    Canada's First 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Early Years
    Canada's first-ever 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for children in their early years - aged four and under - are now available for parents and caregivers. These guidelines show the interrelationship between physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep, and make recommendations on the amount of each that is needed for a child's optimal health.

    Sask Sport is helping to make the hoop dreams of children in central Saskatchewan come true. Over a dozen schools in Saskatoon and North Battleford with a high First Nations and Metis-student base have been using the Sask Sport Aboriginal Community Sport Development Grant Program to increase levels of physical activity among their students.

    The grant program, which is funded by Sport Canada Bilateral Program and the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation, is designed to support the development and implementation of community sport programs. Using the grant funds, these schools have been able to partner with Wild Youth Sports Management to organize basketball programs in their schools and communities.
