Overview of CAS
The Coaches Association of Saskatchewan (CAS) is a membership organization of coaches managed by a volunteer board of directors representing all aspects of coaching. As a member of Sask Sport Inc., CAS is eligible to receive grants from the Sport Section of the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund. These grants combined with self-help revenues are used for managing coaching programs and services in Saskatchewan for all coaches from all sports and for the administrative costs for the office, staff and programs.
The Coaches Association of Saskatchewan (CAS) was incorporated as a provincial non-profit organization in 1990. In the early years its purpose was to act as a representative voice for coaches in Saskatchewan. In 1993, with the decision by the Provincial Government to withdraw from sport programming, CAS's role expanded to act as the Province's representative body for coaching and at that time took on the promotion, administration and delivery role for the NCCP multi-sport modules (Theory) in Saskatchewan. In 1997, the association's role once again expanded to include all levels of coaching and initiatives related to coaching development. CAS is identified as the "Provincial Partner" to the Coaches Association of Canada (CAC) and acts as a liaison to CAC regarding coaching issues programs and developments in Saskatchewan.
