KidSport™ Saskatchewan has 32 committees
across the province that enable children to become
active in organized sports. Each year, the KidSport™
committees help an average of 3,400 children participate

archery to wrestling.
"When companies like
SaskEnergy get behind the community, it creates a
win-win situation for everyone involved," said Don
McDougall, Volunteer Chair of KidSport Saskatchewan.
"The Kids Club will go a long way in helping less
fortunate kids benefit from everything sports has to
offer, and we're confident that this program will be
another great success."
