Sport. It’s More Than A Game. is an advocacy campaign to encourage the long-term growth and development of amateur sport in the province. Using Saskatchewan stories and people, the campaign aims to promote the benefits of sport.
It is a fundamental belief of Sask Sport – that sport IS more than just a game.
Sport promotes healthy, active lifestyles and contributes to making vibrant Saskatchewan communities. Sport brings people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds together by building lifetime relationships and teaching lessons in goal setting, time management, teamwork, leadership and how to manage emotions.
