With optimism and excitement, many within Saskatchewan’s amateur sport community continue to work towards the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Chair of Sask Sport and Sask Lotteries offers her support to Saskatchewan’s athletes, coaches, officials and support staff and shares a province-wide rallying cry for all of us to “Cheer on Sask.”

A message from the Chair of Sask Sport and Sask Lotteries

It goes without saying that the past year has brought many challenges and required all of us to live and work differently – and amateur sport is no different.

Despite these challenges, there is reason for optimism and, when the time is right, athletes, coaches, support staff and officials from across the globe will once again gather for amateur sport’s biggest stage – first, in Tokyo, followed by Beijing.

On behalf of the volunteer board of Sask Sport and Sask Lotteries, I would like to acknowledge the hard-work, determination and drive of those individuals who continue to train, coach, officiate and provide support services during the uncertain times en route to the postponed Tokyo 2020 Summer Games and the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing. Your dedication to achieve your dreams serves as an inspiration to the people in this province.

When these competitions return, we will see dreams come to fruition. For others, the journey may take another path and provide opportunities for personal growth. We celebrate you all and take great excitement in witnessing whatever lies ahead. You are all incredible ambassadors for sport and our province. We thank you for this.

I would also like to recognize the contributions of the Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan, which provides important resources that empower high-performance athletes and coaches to elevate their game on and off the field of play. Your assistance helps many of Saskatchewan’s athletes and coaches to advance to national and international competitions and raises the profile for all of Saskatchewan sport.

Together, we are all part of a vibrant amateur sport community with a storied history that continues to grow as a new generation makes its mark at home and abroad.

Two words sum it up: Sask Proud.


Angella Pinay,
Chair of Sask Sport and Sask Lotteries
