SPRA Upcoming Events
Play Leadership On-Demand Training Available Now
Play Leadership Training has been successfully implemented in Saskatchewan for many years!
This new, virtual on-demand training allows Play Leaders to participate at a time, place and pace that is convenient, or ideal, for them.
We are piloting this new offering at an introductory price point.

Rec Fest
The Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA) has partnered with the Saskatchewan Association of Recreation Professionals to deliver what we believe will be the networking event of the year for the parks and recreation industry – RecFest! The event will be held on September 19-22 at the Saskatoon Inn and Conference Centre on the first night of the 2022 S.A.R.P. Conference.

SPRA will not be hosting an annual Conference this fall, so we encourage all of our members to attend this exciting networking opportunity! The S.A.R.P. Conference will feature engaging sessions and a tradeshow that are sure to appeal to recreation practitioners, volunteers and professionals. S.A.R.P. membership is not required to attend the 3-day event. All are welcome!
