Planning Community Sports

Sport can be a significant part of community unity and provides benefits such as healthy lifestyles, self-discipline and positive self-esteem for individuals.

To help communities build and maintain active sport programs for children and youth, Sask Sport has created a Community Sport for Children and Youth Planning Toolkit.

The toolkit is designed to help communities determine, develop, provide, and evaluate their sport program needs so that more children and youth are active in sport for life. Its goals are to help communities achieve the following goals:

  • Increase the number of Indigenous children and youth playing sport.
  • Increase the numbers of volunteers available to organize, coach, and assist with sport programs.
  • Encourage organized sport programs that are developmentally appropriate for children and youth.
  • Encourage partnerships within the community and with other communities to organize leagues tournaments and competitions.
