Opportunities to Participate

Sport changes lives. It promotes physical activity, builds leaders and fosters friendships and memories. Moreover, it’s just plain fun.

In Saskatchewan, there are countless opportunities for individuals of all ages and abilities to participate in and benefit from sport. If you don’t want in the game, you can enrich your community — and yourself — as a volunteer.

Officials

Officials keep sport safe, fair and fun. They’re knowledgeable, trained, passionate and dedicated — and most competitions can’t happen without them.

Officiating is a rewarding way to participate in a sport you love while also promoting its growth.

Volunteers

Volunteers are the foundation of amateur sport. Right now in your community, someone needs a board member, activity leader or help with a number of other jobs big and small.

No matter the task, you’re supporting meaningful experiences and opportunities that make this province more vibrant.

Adaptive Sport

Adaptive sport plays an important role in a healthy lifestyle and provides access to a social network and peer support.

In Saskatchewan today, there are numerous opportunities in adaptive sport, including sledge hockey, wheelchair basketball, skiing and more. If you’re unsure where to start, review the list of Provincial Sport Organizations or contact Sask Sport’s Adaptive Sport Coordinator below.

Additional information about adaptive sport programming, including resources for parents, coaches and teachers, is available on the Adaptive Sport section of this website.
