How old are the athletes who will be competing in the games?

How do I participate in the Games as an athlete, coach or manager for Regina?
To become an athlete for Team Regina, athletes will have to attend a tryout or playdown. How the selection works and when they take place vary by sport, but details on the selection process can be found in each individual sport technical package which can be viewed on the specific sport pages on the Sask Games website. If it's unclear to you how the process works after reading the tech package, it's best to contact the Team Regina Coordinator directly. If you are interested in being a coach or manager contact the Provincial Sport Governing Body (PSGB) of the sport you are interested in being involved with. The PSGBs are responsible for selecting all coaches and managers who will then select the athletes.
When and where will tryouts happen for the Regina District?
Each sport's selection dates and methods will be different, more details will be available soon. The recommendation is to monitor (or directly contact) either the Team Regina or the PSGB’s website. Every attempt will be to coordinate and update information as it is made available.
How do I know which District to which I am eligible to try out for?
The Teams for the Saskatchewan Games are divided into nine Districts. The Districts have very specific boundaries that are based on RM boundaries. A list of the Districts and more information on their boundaries can be viewed on Page 44 of the Saskatchewan Games Handbook. If after viewing the boundaries you are still unsure, contact the Team Regina Coordinator for clarification.
Can an athlete participate in more than one sport at the games?
Athletes can compete in two sports if they occur in separate halves of the games. For example, an athlete can compete in Athletics in the first half and then Golf in the second half. Athletes must try out for each sport separately. For a breakdown of which sports occur in which half check out the sport calendar here.
Is there a cost to participate in the games?
Once selected as an athlete for the Games a $75 fee is applied. This fee is applied to the costs associated with the Games, including your ceremonial walkout uniform, accommodations, meals, and transportation to and from Lloydminster. PSGBs may also require a fee to help cover costs of tryouts, practices and competition uniforms. It is at the PSGB's discretion whether a separate fee is collected.
Where will I be staying and eating and during the competition?
All athletes, coaches and managers will be housed in the Athletes' Village at Lloydminster Comprehensive High School. All meals will be provided by the Host Society.
