Saskatchewan Resources & Tools

Officials' Awareness Campaign

Officials are important to amateur sport in Saskatchewan. They keep sport safe, fair and fun. They are knowledgeable, trained, passionate and dedicated. And, our competitions cannot be held without them.

Sport competitions provide opportunities for people to participate, and opportunities to host local, provincial, national and international events in our province. Sport helps develop our young people, our communities and our province.

In addition to awareness efforts which are being undertaken by Sask Sport, members of Sask Sport are encouraged to use these tools to enhance awareness efforts.

Sask Sport Officials Video - "Love the Sport? Make it Official"
Do you have an upcoming officials' forum, registration night, parent or team meeting, board orientation, or other suitable opportunity that you can play this video? The video is for all participants in sport - athletes, coaches, parents, officials, volunteers, administrators, and fans. It discusses officials and the important role they play in amateur sport, and encourages respect between all participants. It is inspirational, educational, and can help set the right tone for the season!

This tag line supports the messages of the Officials Awareness campaign. We share a love for sport and we believe in sport because it engages people in healthy activities, shapes young people as our future leaders, and energizes our communities and our province.

Make your love of sport official:

  • Participate in sport respectfully as parents, family, fans, athletes, coaches or officials - we each have a role in creating a respectful environment that our children can thrive in;
  • Get involved in sport as an official - bring your knowledge and keep learning through training. You'll be active in the sport you love and you'll be providing an opportunity for your sport to flourish and for others to participate.
  • Support and recognize our officials - let the officials in your sport know that you appreciate their efforts and recognize their importance to your sport.
  • If you are an official, keep up the good work, and spread the word for others to get involved.

Development of the Officials Awareness Campaign stemmed from recommendations made by a provincial Officials' Development Task Force which was established to examine the issues affecting officials' development in Saskatchewan.
