On Wednesday, August 25, 2021, the Saskatchewan Hockey Association launched a new name and logo for the 2021-22 hockey season and beyond. The association will be aptly named Hockey Saskatchewan.
This name change brings the organization in line with Hockey Canada, where “hockey” comes before the organization’s location and is seen on many of the provincial branches across the country. The name change also eliminates any confusion with “SHA”, the acronym also used by the Saskatchewan Health Authority.
“As an organization, we felt it was a good time to update our name and logo. Given the ongoing pandemic, confusion surrounding the acronym played a role in this change and we hope this will clear matters up when identifying our organization,” said Kelly McClintock, General Manager.
Hockey Saskatchewan was established in 1912 and is the governing body for organized hockey in the Province of Saskatchewan. With a mission to Lead, Develop and Promote Positive Hockey Experiences, Hockey Saskatchewan encourages competition at all levels – from recreational to high performance. Hockey Saskatchewan has grown through the years and is Saskatchewan’s largest sports organization with over 43,000 members comprised of players, coaches, and officials.
