Thumbs up for K+S Potash Canada Multi-sport Centre

The K+S Potash Canada Multi-sport Centre has been a welcome addition to the Gordie Howe Sports Complex grounds.

The Multi-sport Centre opened to users for the winter sports season. The Saskatoon Lions Speed Skating Club and the many people that came out to enjoy public skating were the first ones to break in the new building, and it was obvious they appreciated the comforts of the structure.

For the March 2022 upload of the Howe Happenings blog, the main feature post focuses on what it means to the speed skating, baseball and track and field communities to be able to use the new Multi-sport Centre. Those sports communities will be the main groups that utilize the new building over the years.

Lions President Chris Veeman talked about how they put the equipment in the electronic timing booth too good use. He added how it was more convenient it was to have the booths compared to what the Lions used to do to time races.

Jason Reindl, who wears many hats as an elite level track and field coach, and Greg Brons, who is the High Performance Director for Baseball Sask., discussed how their respective sports are looking forward to using the new building.

All three sporting groups are hoping to attract national level competitions in future years with the Multi-sport Centre having been completed.

Besides the piece on the Multi-sport Centre, we have a photo round up that shows off more of the happenings on our grounds as winter heads into the home stretch.
