SaskEnergy is well known for creative community initiatives and Goals For KidSport is another winner. A sponsorship request from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) turned into a successful, three-way collaboration with two good causes. Since 2014, Goals for KidSport has provided valuable sponsorship for junior hockey teams in 11 communities and generated just over $46,000 for Saskatchewan families in need of a helping hand to register children in sports.

“SaskEnergy offered a “charity of choice” donation on behalf of the lucky player who scored the 1,000th goal.”

The glory of winning the KidSport Cup and a $500 team prize was extra incentive for competitive players to score the most home goals in a season, and raise the most money for their local KidSport Chapter at $20 per goal. SaskEnergy offered a “charity of choice” donation on behalf of the lucky player who scored the 1.000th goal that would mark SaskEnergy’s season total of $20,000 for KidSport.

Season two is almost complete and the SaskEnergy Network Members have joined in, particularly as volunteers for game nights in their community. This SaskEnergy driven collective of plumbing and heating contractors and retailers was invited to help with game night fundraising in all SJHL communities, and to help present SaskEnergy Volunteer Champion Awards which recognized outstanding volunteers nominated by each junior hockey team.
