The sound of happiness and glee from children and young athletes fill the air, if you’ve dropped in at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex in July and currently in August.

Saskatoon’s home for sport has become the home for summer sports camps.

In July and August, the morning and afternoon daily calendar is filled with activity from weekly camps involving the Spark Park Summer Sport Camps run by Ignite Athletics in partnership with the Complex and track and field camps overseen by the Running Wild Athletics Club.

With all the fun that is being had, the main feature for the August upload for the “Howe Happenings” blog is a story about how much enjoyment is being had at those camps. The piece also shows that both of those camps have provided wonderful opportunities to allow children and young athletes to be active.

On top of checking in on the fun of those summer sports camps, “Howe Happenings” contains a new photo round up post capturing scenes from numerous events that have been held on our grounds since July 1.

Since the start of July and with the lifting of Public Health Orders that were brought in to address the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gordie Howe Sports Complex grounds hosted events like Saskatoon Valkyries WWCFL football games and provincial softball championship tournaments for the first time since 2019. Excitement was in the air for the resumption of these events.

New content will be released on the ninth day of each month. We hope you will enjoy the stories that make up the posts on the “Howe Happenings” blog.
