One way to stay warm this winter in Saskatoon is to head inside and take in a game or two. There are tons of sports to check out in Saskatoon, from hockey and volleyball, to lacrosse and basketball. Here are some local teams to support during our long winters.

Saskatoon Blades

The Saskatoon Blades started in 1964 and have developed many top professional hockey players over the decades. They play at SaskTel Centre from September to March. The Blades hit the ice about ten times a month, with quite a few of those games being home games. There’s a good chance you will be able to catch a game during your visit to Saskatoon.
