Deadline approaching for Adaptive Sport Grants
Clubs and Provincial Sport Organizations have until Oct. 15, 2020, to submit their applications for both grants. Please remember that applications from a club must be endorsed by their appropriate PSO prior to being submitted to Sask Sport.

  • The purpose of the Adaptive Sport Club Development Grant is to provide financial assistance to support new developmental programs in communities or the expansion (enhancement) of existing sport programs for persons with a disability.

  • The cost of specialized (adapted) equipment for athletes with a disability to participate in sport is a significant barrier to their participation. The purpose of the Adaptive Sport Equipment Grant is to assist in removing this barrier and provide financial assistance for the purchase of adapted equipment to help people with disabilities participate in organized sport programs.

If you have questions, please contact Joelle Buckle.
Future Best application deadline Oct. 15
A reminder to Provincial Sport Organizations that all applications for Future Best funding are due on Oct. 15.

The funding is designed for athletes who are involved in an intense level of training and competition with the personal goals and the realistic potential to become a National Senior Team member, yet have not reached carded status or been named to a National Senior team.

Please ensure that the athletes you have nominated for funding complete the application through the Online Funding Portal.
Women in Coaching Mentorship Grant
Supported through gender equity funding from Sport Canada, the Coaches Association of Saskatchewan and Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan are partnering to help High Performance coaches level up so that they can coach athletes to the next level.

Through a community of practice, mentors and mentees will be able to connect in meaningful ways to share their success while also sharing solutions to issues they may be encountering. This program is about building a lasting community among coaches that will set a foundation for sharing, support and the enhancement of skills in one's coaching toolkit.

Applications close Oct. 19.
