Plan your visit with the Sask. Sports Hall of Fame

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (SSHF) starting on July 5. Before you come, please read the following so you can plan your visit with us.

Please access our online booking system to secure your timed entry prior to visiting. A maximum of 15 people can be in the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame at any given time. We would appreciate it if you did not arrive more than five minutes before your allotted time and no more than 10 minutes after your scheduled arrival time.

Once you have arrived at the building, please enter the main front doors into the vestibule. At the scheduled time you will be met at the doors by SSHF staff who will guide you into the Hall of Fame. We will be happy to welcome you and answer any questions you may have.

The SSHF has implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfection procedures to keep you safe during your visit. You can learn more about them here.

In addition to enhanced cleaning, we will also be confirming our visitor’s names and a phone number. Your information will not be used for promotional purposes and will only be shared with the Saskatchewan Health Authority should they request it.

Effective Friday, October 1, 2021, as per the Government of Saskatchewan’s Public Health Measures, the SSHF is obliged to ask all visitors for proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test received within 72 hours of their visit. This policy applies to all visitors 12 and older, with no exceptions.

For more on this policy, including accepted proof of vaccination, please click here.

As long as it remains mandated by provincial health guidelines, all visitors who are over the age of three are required to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times while inside the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. All SSHF staff will also be wearing masks for your added safety and peace of mind. If you do not have a mask, they are available on site.

Inside the SSHF galleries, socially distant directional guest flow must be obeyed during your visit. Please follow the directional decals on the floor and stay to the right. We require guests to keep two metres (or six feet) between themselves and anyone else who is not part of their group. We ask that you be patient and wait for others to move forward as required to respect proper distancing.

We would also ask that you please keep your group together and your children within your reach at all times. Groups of six or more may be asked to split into smaller groups.

You can find more information on what exhibits and features are currently open and available here.

As always, food and drink are not permitted inside the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.

While we have washrooms onsite, we would appreciate your understanding in trying to use the washroom before your visit if possible.

Visitors who are not able to commit to the above protocols should please choose to postpone their visit to a later date.

Sask. government’s new vaccine requirements go into effect Oct. 1

Effective Friday, October 1, 2021, as per the Government of Saskatchewan’s Public Health Measures, the SSHF is obliged to ask all visitors for proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test received within 72 hours of their visit. This policy applies to all visitors 12 and older, with no exceptions.

Acceptable proof of vaccination includes:

  • Complete COVID-19 vaccination record in a printed or electronic format from eHealth Saskatchewan with a QR code,
  • Your eHealth Saskatchewan QR Code on a mobile phone,
  • Your printed eHealth Saskatchewan QR Code,
  • Or the wallet card you received at the time of immunization. Photo identification will also be required to match the guest to their proof of vaccination. Vaccinated youths between the ages of 12 and 17 do not need to show ID if accompanied by a vaccinated adult.

Acceptable documentation for a negative test result includes a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test or a rapid antigen test provided by a certified healthcare provider from within the previous 72 hours. A list of locations and labs offering testing services is available here. Self-administered take-home rapid antigen tests (e.g. pictures of negative tests) will not be accepted as valid proof of negative COVID-19 test results.

Anyone declining to provide either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will be denied entry to the Hall of Fame.

Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the proof of vaccination or negative test requirement. If the attending adult cannot meet the vaccine/negative test requirement any children under 12 would also be denied entry.

As has been our policy since re-opening, all visitors must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth while inside the Hall of Fame.

We thank our visitors for their patience and understanding as we navigate these changes and we thank you for your patronage.

SSHF exhibit galleries will be closed indefinitely

The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (SSHF) and its exhibit galleries will be closed to the public indefinitely in response to an increase of positive cases of COVID-19 within the province.

While there is currently no COVID-19 public health order requiring the closure of the SSHF galleries, given the increasing cases in Saskatchewan, however, we believe it is the appropriate thing to do.

Our front doors may be closed, but we still have a lot to offer. Educators can engage their classrooms in a “Virtual Field Trip” with our Education Coordinator. Sport history buffs can immerse themselves in all aspects of our website, including a virtual tour of Prairie Pride: A History of Saskatchewan Football, which will be uploaded soon.

We will continue to monitor the provincial situation as well as public health orders and will re-open the SSHF to the public when it is safe and appropriate to do so.

Thank you for your continued understanding and support. We look forward to being able to welcome you back soon.

Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame moves 2020 Induction to 2021

The Board of Directors of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (SSHF) has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Induction Dinner & Ceremony scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2020, due to health and safety concerns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 Induction Class will be carried forward as the Class of 2021. Their induction is now scheduled to occur in September 2021.

The SSHF has been closely monitoring developments since social distancing protocols were put in place by the Government of Saskatchewan in March. The health and welfare of our inductees, their families and friends, patrons, staff, volunteers and suppliers remains front of mind. Given the continued uncertainty relating to when groups could gather safely and without restriction, the SSHF and its Board of Directors felt this cancelation was the most prudent course of action.

In arriving at this decision serious consideration was given to other creative means to honour our 2020 Class virtually to adhere to social distancing measures. Ultimately, the decision to cancel was made based on our concern for what would be best for our inductees. By delaying a year, the SSHF wanted to ensure that their induction night would be an opportunity to come together with family, friends, teammates and the Saskatchewan sporting community to celebrate their accomplishments.

In addition to moving the Class of 2020 forward, any nominees still under consideration will retain an extra year of eligibility. Our nomination deadline is October 31, 2021 and we encourage anyone who has an athlete, team or builder that they feel is worthy of inclusion in the Hall of Fame to please take the time to nominate them.

The Class of 2021 will be unveiled at a later date.
