Warren Proctor dedicated 36 years toward the progression of amateur sport in Saskatchewan before stepping into retirement 

For the last 36 years, Warren Proctor has dedicated himself to Saskatchewan’s amateur sport community. With over three decades of commitment to supporting sport through various capacities, Proctor will embark on a new journey by stepping into retirement at the end of March.  

A passion for sport led Proctor to begin what would become a lifelong career in 1988. Hired under the Sask First Coaching Grant by the Saskatchewan Curling Association, he was responsible for selecting, preparing and coaching the Saskatchewan U19 curling teams that would represent Saskatchewan at the 1991 Canada Winter Games.  

After three years with the Saskatchewan Curling Association, Proctor relocated to Ottawa in 1991 for an opportunity with the Canadian Curling Association, as the Director of Curling Development. For eight years, he worked with provincial curling associations across Canada, helping promote the national growth of curling.

In 1998, Proctor made the move back to Saskatchewan and took on the Event Manager position for the 2000 Brier, hosted by Saskatoon. 

Following the Brier, Proctor spent two years working for Huskie Athletics before taking the final step in his career, which brought him to Sask Sport in 2002.   

During his 22 years with Sask Sport, he contributed to an innumerable amount of projects and roles. Proctor helped develop Saskatchewan’s physical activity initiative and aided with the development of the second part of the Canadian Sport for Life policy. In addition, he was the organization’s representative in the formation of the sport, culture and recreation districts in Saskatchewan. 

In 2013, he took over the development of the high-performance planning initiative and was involved until its release in 2014. 

For the last several years with Sask Sport, Proctor worked as a Sport Consultant and interacted with 80 per cent of Saskatchewan’s Provincial Sport and Multi-Sport Organizations. 

“Warren, your legacy will surely remain intertwined in the fabric of the amateur sport community. After an outstanding career, we wish you all the best in retirement and thank you for your 36 years of commitment, admiration and support of Saskatchewan’s amateur sport.”
