Athlete of the Month Award

The Athlete of the Month Award is presented for an 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
  • Be amateur in status as defined by their Provincial Sport Organizations
  • 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. 

* Should an athlete compete in an event that starts at the end of one month and continues into the next, we will accept the nominations for month the competition ends in. (Example: An event that runs October 30 to November 3, the nomination would be accepted for the November athlete of the month.  However, if the event ran October 30-31, the nomination would be for the October athlete of the month.
