Saskatchewan Winter Games set to get underway in Regina

For the first time ever, Regina is playing host to the Saskatchewan Winter Games presented by Teine Energy, as the 50th anniversary of the biennial multi-sport event gets underway on Feb. 19.

Upwards of 1,600 athletes from every corner of the province are set to compete in 16 different sports. The weeklong event includes competition in alpine skiing, artistic swimming, badminton, biathlon, bowling – Special Olympics, cross country skiing and Para Nordic skiing, curling, figure skating, futsal, gymnastics, speed skating, table tennis, target shooting, weightlifting and wrestling. Futsal and mixed doubles curling are making their program debut at the 2023 Games.

The opening ceremonies will be held on Feb. 19 with the closing ceremonies set for Feb. 25.

First established in 1972, the Saskatchewan Games have successfully provided an important and exciting competitive environment for Saskatchewan athletes. Many of these athletes have gone on to represent our province at the Western Canada and Canada Games, on the Canadian national stage and beyond. The purpose of the Saskatchewan Games is to stage a major multi-sport event for a maximum number of participants from the province’s nine District sport organizations.

The Saskatchewan Winter Games have also teamed up with Home Team Live to offer live streaming of the events, live and on demand. The streaming will be free to watch all week long at app.hometeamlive.com.
