The Saskatchewan Games are one of the largest amateur sporting events in Saskatchewan, seeing participation from over 2,000 athletes, coaches, and officials and over 1,000 volunteers from every corner of the province. Inclusion is a large focus of the Saskatchewan Games, both Special Olympic and Para-athletes participate alongside able-bodied athletes that reflect the cultural diversity of our province.
