Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find sport specific information on upcoming coaching clinics?

A Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) is responsible for the overall development of its sport, from grassroots to high performance. There are 65 PSOs in Saskatchewan. PSOs train athletes, coaches and officials, provide professional guidance, ensure safety, provide insurance, set rules, raise money, and acquire sponsorships in support of their organization and members. The purpose of PSOs is to foster, develop, promote and regulate the playing and officiating of their sport.
