More facilities for
thanks to SPRA
Thanks to Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Grant Programs. We are super excited to get started on our next project. We will be putting in two beach volleyball courts and two horse shoe pits. The volleyball courts are scheduled to go south of Remax court to take advantage of an awesome atmosphere there. The horse shoe pits are to go beside our batting cage to allow campers to take advantage of both the Royal LePage Miniature Golf Course and the batting cage, and now the horse shoe pits!
Vio Festival News!
We are very excited (Covid-19 willing) to host the Vio Festival coming up on May 29 and 30. Softball Saskatchewan has passed along some news for us. They are hopeful they will run. That said, they are not going to be charging anyone at this time. Softball Saskatchewan has decided they will open registration and then charge teams once they get the official go ahead rather than refunding if they cannot run them.
Below is the link page where you can register (upcoming clinics page on their website). If you have any questions you can contact Melissa Hersche at email@example.com. Link to register at https://softball.sk.ca/events.
Out of town Rec
please note clinic
Once again we extend a thank you to Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association. We have been fortunate to receive a grant which has allowed us to book Barry Ault for a one-day sports grounds course.
Barry was a long-time city of Regina manager and now runs the Pacer Provincial courses for Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation.
Our course will be held Friday, May 14 from 8 am to 4 pm. We do have limited space available so if any out-of-town rec departments were interested in sending an employee, contact us (435-3622) and we will try to fit you in!
Registration Now Open
The Generals are committed to offering whatever programs they can in compliance with Covid-19 restrictions and return to play protocols. While they don’t know what they will exactly be at this moment, they will start with whatever they can and evolve as restrictions lift.
They will likely start with some positional skills based practices, followed by flag football and hopefully tackle football with some games. If games against other communities are not permitted, they will work to create house teams in each division so it isn’t all just practice.
Registration is open and does not require fees at this point as fees will be based on what level of programming they can do. Registering gets you in the contact loop as thing progress.
Register at www.generalsfootball.ca or email/call/text Jason Schenn for details at firstname.lastname@example.org or 306-434-7344.
Massive summer planned
for Bradley Park!
Those who follow the Rec Report will know we had already been chosen as hosts for the U16 Girls Provincial C Fastball Tournament. The tournament is scheduled to be held July 9, 10 and 11.
Then we were informed we had been selected to host a U10 Fastball Festival on May 29 and 30. This will bring multiple young teams to town for a two-day tournament and skills development weekend.
Then we were contacted by the Saskatchewan Baseball Association who informed us we have been selected for two Minor Ball Provincial Tournaments. Dates and categories will be announced shortly.
Finally, we will have the opportunity to host the Masters Baseball Tournament.
Throw in our Co-ed Slo Pitch tournament along with a planned Iron Man weekend and we have an absolutely fantastic summer planned for Bradley Park.
We are now taking names of volunteers who would be willing to help out with the weekends. If you could help please contact Mike at 435-3622 or by email at email@example.com.
2021 Friday night co-ed
slo pitch league
With 2020 being cancelled due to Covid-19, I think everyone is super excited about 2021. With that in mind we are now taking entries for the 2021 league. Entries can be phoned to 435-3622 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2021 Summer Iron Man
Watch for details but this will be a blast as we combine “under the lights” slo pitch with beach volleyball, indoor golf, horse shoes and miniature golf! Details will be out some time in April.
Senior Rangers Alumni
Our Moosomin Senior Rangers Alumni Association held our first meeting a few weeks back and it is exciting. Almost two dozen former players have now joined the organization. Our first formal event will be our 2021 Golf Tournament. The tournament will be held Saturday, June 12. Watch for details in the coming weeks!
Prime-Timers has arrived at the Sportsplex
Moosomin Parks and Recreation understands this unprecendented time in our history, dealing with Covid-19, hours can turn to days to weeks to months. Things can really get away from people if they are stuck indoors.
As such we are excited to be offering a new program to retirees and seniors who may have some time on their hands and are looking for something to do with it. Some way to get out and socialize, keep active and work our way to the end of this pandemic.
Every month will be something new. To register or for information please contact our Programmer Randi Thorn at email@example.com or by phone at 306-435-9518.

April 23: Home Hardware
April 30: Wind-up—Nutrien Mine
We have begun to field calls about the 2021 pool season. We truly do appreciate patrons planning so far in advance as it in turn allows us to better plan our season and lesson sets.
Having said that, Covid-19 really throws a wrench into what we can do. If memory serves me, in 2020 it was not until around June 20 that the government announced pools would be able to open. However, once they were allowed to open, to my knowledge, there was not a single case of transmission reported at any pool in the province which certainly bodes well for 2021 and when we will be allowed to be open.
We will plan 2021 like a “normal” season and with that patrons can expect lesson dates to be mirrored to our 2019 lesson sets.
Our lesson sets for 2021 include:
Set 1 June 7-18 2 Week Set
Set 2 June 28–July 2 1 Week Set
Set 3 July 5-16 2 Week Set
Set 4 July 26-30 1 Week Set
Set 5 August 9-20 2 Week Set
Set 1 June 21-25 1 Week Set
Set 2 July 19-23 1 Week Set
Set 3 August 2-6 1 Week Set
All registration received by May 1 with postdated cheque will receive 2019 pool rates. Cheques may be post dated to May 15. Should lesson dates have to be rescheduled (due to Covid-19) to a date which does not work for registrants, all money will be fully refunded.
Registration forms can be found: Online at our Parks and Recreation Home Page; Online on our Borderland Co-op Aquaplex Facebook Page; Can be picked up at the Town Office; Watch for the form in weekly Town of Moosomin ads in the World-Spectator.
Mike Schwean Arena
Sad to me, but it is what it is—our ice is now out at the Mike Schwean Arena. At a time when we should be battling for league and provincial banners, we are left with a dry ice surface. The only good to come of that is we are now able to take bookings for baseball, fastball, soccer, and football training. As per present regulations, organizations can now have up to 30 (18 and under) players on the surface along with coaches. Groups must be divided into a maximum of eight per group.
Moosomin Senior Club
Moosomin Seniors Club have resumed their programming at the Sportsplex. If you would like details please contact the Recreation Office at 306-435-3622.
2021 Bradley Park Staff
We are excited to welcome back our staff for 2021. Parks and Rec undertook an absolute ton of projects in 2020, and in 2021 we’ll start to see many of those projects either come to fruition, or at the very least become a clear vision of what is forthcoming.
That 2021 staff includes:
Park Manager Ferell Horn
Summer Student Jevon Schwean
Park Employee Clayton Kinlien
Special Projects Bob Baczuk
I am excited to not only re-open our camping spaces on our main parking lot but 2021 will see six new sites placed between the Generals Football Field and Home Hardware Field. If you are coming to town for a wedding, Conexus Convention Centre event, ball tournament, swimming lessons or family function, we would love to have you stay at our campground. They are intended as short-term stays, however they do all come with 30 amp power along with fresh town water.
To book a site or for more information please contact the Recreation Office at 435-3622.
This is something, Covid-19 willing, our department is very excited about. We will re-visit the days close to 100 years back in Moosomin when the Chautauqua Festival was the biggest event of the year. Still confined by Covid-19 regulations, we look to run our festival over multiple weeks. Our plan is every Friday at lunch in July we will offer a barbecue along with live music at the Tim Hortons Eventplex with live performances on the Celebration Ford Stage. On top of that the Oilman’s Deck will be open at the Sportsplex with an amazing barbecue lunch!
2021 Summer Projects
at Bradley Park
As mentioned earlier, 2020 was devastating for play at Bradley Park due to Covid-19, however it was a wonderful chance for us to tackle a ton of upgrade projects that we had been too busy to tackle previous. In 2021 we look to re-open and many of those projects are coming to fruition.
Here is a look at a park transforming before our very eyes!
Pharmasave Field/Sharpe’s Field:
Little Tots Ball Diamond
Thanks to sponsors at Pharmasave and Sharpe’s we are excited to proceed with a multiple purpose field that will provide the community with two little tots ball diamonds along with a second soccer field. The amount of work is dependant on a couple of outstanding grants, however we are hoping to proceed with irrigation, lush grass, backstops, fencing and soccer nets.
If you are touring by Bradley Park, you may notice hills of dirt there. Thanks to public works for transporting the black dirt there over the winter, allowing us to get a head start on the project this spring.
Expect the irrigation at Kin Field to be completed this year. The Kinsmen Club have built an amazing facility. This will make it even better!
In-park Walking Tracks
In 2021 we look to open 13 different walking paths within Bradley Park. All paths differ in length but all start/end at one of our two main park sitting areas— Remax Court or Tims Hortons Outdoor Eventplex. The paths will all come complete with maps which will also be found at Remax Court or the Tim Hortons Outdoor Eventplex Gazebo.
Home Hardware Field
What a beauty of a diamond this field has transformed into since the sponsorship of Bob and Rose Mullett came along. The fall of 2020 saw some major groundwork to solve a drainage problem. That portion of the project will be completed this spring. Then we are so excited as Bob and Rose have a 10x20 addition which will serve as the announcer booth, concession and storage for Home Hardware Field. This truly has become a wonderful Bantam baseball field!
Soccer Field Updates
Quietly the soccer field has gotten better and better and better. The Minor Soccer Association and Generals Football have teamed up with even more upgrades. The two look to put up LED playing lights and run water lines to the field when performing trenching. This facility will soon become one of the nicest soccer facilities in rural Saskatchewan!
