About Team Sask

Team Sask is made up of the collection of athletes, coaches, managers, technicians, and mission staff that represent Saskatchewan at major multi-sport games in Canada, including the Canada Summer and Winter Games and Western Canada Summer Games. Being a member of Team Sask allows our province's athletes to achieve their highest athletic potential, pursue personal excellence and develop socially and culturally within the context of healthy, ethical competition. From summer to winter sports, to able-bodied and para-sport, Team Sask's talents range across the sports spectrum. Many of Team Sask's proud alumni have gone on to compete on the world stage, with Olympians, Paralympians, and international and national champions among its ranks. Team Sask has represented the top athletic talent in Saskatchewan since the first-ever Canada Games in 1967.
