Community Support for Recreation Boards – A Road Map When the Path Isn’t Clear

Community Support for Recreation Boards – A Road Map When the Path Isn’t Clear

Recreation Boards are the heart of a community, providing key leadership for community growth. When resources are limited, volunteers feel overworked, and systems aren’t working the way they should, it can feel overwhelming to know where to turn for support. The last year and a half have been especially challenging.

The Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA), in partnership with the South West District for Culture, Recreation, and Sport Inc. (SWDCRS), offers support for volunteer recreation boards.

We’ll work with you to identify what you have, where you want to go, and how to get there.

We can help you…

  • Define the role of the recreation board
  • Understand your legal responsibilities
  • Develop vision/mission/values
  • Review or create bylaws
  • Develop policies and procedures

What does the community need to do?

  • Identify a community organizer who will bring people together virtually
  • Commit to a healthy discussion

What does it cost?

  • There is no cost
  • You bring the enthusiasm; we’ll supply the rest!
