The Saskatchewan Games Council is a not-for-profit provincial organization made up of three full-time, permanent staff members and 10 Directors whose focus is to provide a quality multi-sport experience for our province's young, developing athletes. The Council is the permanent regulatory body for the Saskatchewan Games program, which sees participation from thousands of athletes, coaches, and officials at each event and takes place in communities across the province every two years, alternating between summer and winter.
The Council also provides extensive logistical support for Team Sask's participation in the Western Canada Summer Games and the Canada Games. In addition to our work with the Saskatchewan Games and Team Sask, we provide funding support to the Tony Cote First Nation Games and the Saskatchewan Senior’s Fitness Association 55+ Provincial Games.
The Saskatchewan Games program will celebrate its 50th anniversary at the 2022 Saskatchewan Winter Games in Regina from February 20-26, 2022.
Multi-sport games are valued as a pathway to sport development and create provincial pride, lasting legacies, and exceptional experiences.
The Saskatchewan Games Council works in collaboration with partners to support inclusive development opportunities for athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, and communities through multi-sport games.
We facilitate personal, sport, and community development by being:
- Inclusive: Supporting all people, cultures and abilities in a safe, respectful environment where all can thrive through sport
- Passionate: There is a contagious passion for and commitment to personal and community development through multi-sport games
- Responsive: Proactive and innovative approaches to changing needs through engagement and collaboration
- Accountable: Honest, ethical and transparent decision-making with responsible stewardship of our resources, assets and the environment we play in
How are we involved with the Saskatchewan Games?
Our purpose is to manage and conduct the Saskatchewan Games program and ensure a quality multi-sport experience for the province's young developing athletes. We maintain the high standard of the Saskatchewan Games program by working with host communities to advise and assist in all aspects of the planning and staging of a Saskatchewan Games.
We also maintain the Saskatchewan Games program by providing a hosting grant. This grant ensures host communities will have a lasting legacy of quality facilities, volunteers and an energized community spirit long after the Games have ended.
