Athlete of the Month Award

NOTE: As a result of COVID-19, the Athlete of the Month Award program has been temporarily suspended.

The Athlete of the Month Award is presented for outstanding performance in a month. Nominations may be made by Provincial Sport Organizations, media or the public. All nominations are subject to approval by the Provincial Sport Organization.

The award is open to teams and individuals who perform solo or on a team. Recipients may not win more than once every calendar year. A “team” is defined as a number of persons associated together in an activity. This includes all-star teams and contingents competing in individual disciplines in which there is a recognized team award.

To be eligible, athletes must: participate in a sport that is a recognized active and affiliate member of Sask Sport Inc.; be amateur in status as defined by their Provincial Sport Organizations; and make their primary residence in Saskatchewan. Athletes who live temporarily in other locations for educational or training purposes are also eligible as are athletes who are originally from other provinces.

Nomination Deadlines

All nominations for the award must be completed by noon on the first Tuesday following the month competition.
