Outdoor Sports Return!

Sunday, May 30th, Saskatchewan athletes took to the fields as outdoor sports were recently added to Step 1 of the Re-opening Roadmap.

Kindersley Minor Ball recently thanked Volunteers, Coordinators, the Minor Ball Board and the Team Managers for pulling together and kicking the season off in an extremely short amount of time.

Kindersley Soccer also hit the field again and recently released their revised outdoor soccer schedule for Tuesdays and Thursdays from June 1st to June 17th.

Sports participants must continue to abide by current public health restrictions such as capacity limitations for outdoor gatherings. Coaches, officials, umpires, referees and players who are not on the field are not required to wear masks under the public health order, however, individuals who are not feeling well should not attend or participate.

“This is a great step toward getting back to normal and it is encouraging that we will be able to see our children back participating in the outdoor team sports and activities they are so passionate about,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said.

In addition to outdoor sports beginning again, organized indoor sports and recreational activities will begin with Step 2 of the Re-Open Roadmap, which is scheduled to start on June 20th.

Saskatchewan residents are also reminded about the Active Families Benefit, which will provide families with an annual income of less than $60,000 up to $150 per year, per child or $200 per year, per child for children who are eligible for the federal Child Disability Tax Credit. This benefit helps with the costs associated with enrolling children in sport and recreation activities.

This investment is part of the 2021-22 Budget and will be retroactive to January 1st, 2021. Parents who enroll their children in sport, culture and recreation activities in the 2021 calendar year are therefore reminded to keep their receipts so they may claim the benefit with their 2021 tax filings.
