CAS is a member of Sask Sport Inc., and is eligible to receive grants from the Sport Section of the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund. The grants, as well as revenues from coach training class and workshops, are used for managing coaching programs and services in Saskatchewan and for administrative costs.
CAS was incorporated as a provincial non-profit organization in 1990 and its purpose was to act as a representative voice for coaches in Saskatchewan. In 1993, 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 of the NCCP multi-sport modules (Theory) in Saskatchewan. By 1997, the association’s role had expanded to include all levels of coaching and initiatives related to coach development.
