Years of Service Acknowledgements
It is important that officials are acknowledged for their 'Years of Service'. To this end Saskatchewan Athletics strives to maintain 'Years of Service' lists. Officials who have officiated are invited to the Annual Awards Dinner and are publically acknowledged. 'Years of Service' acknowledgements are categorized by 20+ Years, 25+ Years, 30+ Years, 35+ Years, 40+ Years, 45+ Years and 50+ Years.
Saskatchewan Athletics also acknowledges all Saskatchewan Officials who have officiated 40 years with a gift of a $150 cheque. The recipient is invited to the Annual Awards Dinner held in October where they receive the cheque. The recipient is also acknowledged in the slide presentation along with the Award Winners.
Saskatchewan Athletics Officials are also acknowledged after 25 years of officiating by receiving a navy windbreaker presented on behalf of the Bob Adams Foundation. The recipient(s) is also acknowledged in the slide presentation along with the Award Winners at the Annual Awards Dinner.
