Mission Staff

At every Canada Games, Team Sask assigns one Mission Staff to each sport to act as a liaison between the sport and the host society. Their primary function is to ensure that athletes, coaches and managers can focuse solely on competition and representing Saskatchewan to the best of their ability. Mission Staff handle any issues that may come up, answer questions or concerns, and of course cheer you on!

In addition to a Mission Staff per sport, there is also a Chef de Mission and Assistant Chef de Mission. These two have been involved in the planning stages of the Games since the beginning, and are considered to be the "team captains" of Team Sask.

A core group of Mission Staff are responsible for Team Operations and Communications, which includes the organizing of transportation, team uniforms, pins, social media, the website, all media relations and more! Team Sask is also bringing a Medical Liaison to Winnipeg. In addition to working with a sport, this person's duties also include communicating medical concerns or issues to the Mission Team, which can then be communicated to the host and vice versa. Lastly, the Mission Staff team also includes a Mental Trainer. The mental trainer is available to teams and individual athletes upon request before and during Games time. 

If you see any of these faces at your practices or in the crowd during Games time, do not hesitate to wave! The Mission Staff will be there to ensure the experience of the athletes, coaches and managers is the best one possible.
