Building Saskatoon’s Sporting Future

Saskatoon is an active, competitive, sporting city. But more people want to play than there are facilities to accommodate them.

The Master Plan for the Gordie Howe Sports Complex will expand our city’s capacity and address real need in our community.

Maximizing the use of new and upgraded facilities, the Master Plan will increase access to safe, reliable facilities for multiple winter and summer sporting activities in Saskatoon and area, allowing many more people to participate.

The Master Plan includes indoor and outdoor training and playing facilities to accommodate development programs for multiple sports, enable year-round training, reduce game cancellations due to poor weather and help athletes of all ages and abilities excel here at home.

Over 175,000 people will benefit every year.

The Gordie Howe Sports Complex aims to become the premier sports park in Western Canada, and a magnet for more national and international events.

Be a part of Saskatoon’s sporting future — Join the team building a better place to play!

Bursaries for YAS Basketball Camp

Hall*Comm Bursaries will be available in order to help Saskatchewan youths (8 – 16) afford fees for sports camps to be held in Saskatoon and Regina during July and August, 2017.

Bursary applications may be submitted from March 1 until August 1

Hall*Comm Trust will co-fund youths from across Saskatchewan who wish to attend summer sports school or camp, but who cannot afford all the school or camp fees. Frequently, a partnership between charitable organizations will enable a youth to attend sports school or camp at significantly reduced fees and often FREE.

Hall*Comm Trust is very selective, and will only co-fund youths for attendance at camps or schools headed by certified professional “A” teachers who are also highly accomplished skills-development coaches. After extensive consideration, Hall*Comm Trust has chosen to partner with Canadian Tire Jump Start (CTJS) in order to co-fund youths to attend Young Athlete Saskatchewan Inc. (YAS) 2017 summer basketball camps.
