The 2024 Saskatchewan Summer Games are fast approaching and there’s still a need for a large amount of volunteers.

“I think we are going to need 1000 people that’s our current goal, that means we need to pick up about 300 people in the next few weeks”, said Wendy Plandowski, co-chair of the Saskatchewan Summer Games.

The games are set to go July 21-27 in Lloydminster and will feature more than 1,800 athletes. There’s a wide range of activities the volunteers will be doing.

“That’s one of the great things about a multi-sport event is there’s something for everyone, we need volunteers for culture, athlete’s village, helping with food, information sharing, we need some sport volunteers, it’s an incredible depth of activities that people can sign up for,” said Plandowski.

Volunteers may be doing jobs such as, access control, ceremonies and protocol, food services, information technology and more. Shifts for volunteers typically range from two to four hours and all volunteers are required to work a minimum of eight hours, or two shifts.

If you are looking to volunteer you can sign up online at the Sask games website. For those that can’t register online they can call into the games office at 306-830-7730.  Youth between 14 and 17 can also register as an independent volunteer but require a parental consent form.
