Leadership Awards

Young Athlete Saskatchewan (YAS) was founded in Regina in 1975 as an International Women’s Year project with collaboration by coaches of the Regina Church Basketball Association and teachers from Regina’s Public and Catholic School Divisions. YAS became Co-Ed. in 1976.  In 1983, with assistance of university faculty, teachers and community league leaders in Saskatoon, YAS was expanded to Saskatoon.

During its 42 summers, YAS summer basketball camps have graduated 13,688 young athletes from 274 Saskatchewan, national and international communities.

Equipped with the individual and teamwork skills and confidence they developed at YAS camps, YAS graduates typically return to their regular schools and communities to take leadership roles in basketball, other athletics, academics and overall school and community activities.

As an extra feature, YAS staff members annually assist YAS graduates to know about and consider partial and full scholarships at colleges and universities across North America.  Due the relatively strong academic curriculum in Canadian schools, graduates of Canadian high schools with even medium athletic ability are sought after for development in a variety of sports by American colleges and universities where Canadians can earn degrees and professional standing while playing sports and having unmatched personal growth experience; without incurring much debt if any at all.         

At its December 2017 meeting, the YAS Board approved the persons listed below as recipients of YAS 2017 Leadership Awards.  The recipients include 74 out of the 427 YAS 2018 camps graduates as well as other leaders such as coaches, instructors, referees, mall kiosk attendants, mailing clerks and others who contributed their skills to help make YAS 2018 a huge success.
