Saskatoon Sports Tourism, in partnership with Canada Basketball, is pleased to announce that Saskatoon will host the only FIBA 3x3 World Tour Masters event in North America in 2017. This professional 3x3 basketball event will take place in conjunction with Taste of Saskatchewan in downtown Saskatoon (4th Avenue & 21st Street).

Saskatoon's own foursome of Michael Linklater, Michael Lieffers, Nolan Brudehl and Steve Sir (Edmonton) will participate in the tournament. The squad finished the 2016 season in 10th place and are each ranked in the top 20 globally. Together, with former member Willie Murdaugh, they have a combined 378 games representing Canada at events around the world, including three consecutive FIBA 3x3 All Stars from 2014-16.

The Saskatoon FIBA 3x3 World Tour Masters will be comprised of 12 teams of four players from around the world participating in a two day tournament. In addition to the main event, a slam dunk contest and a shoot-out contest will take place in between games. Live music, cheerleaders, dance teams and other entertainment will be held throughout the weekend. An amateur 3x3 tournament is also being planned to take place on satellite courts alongside the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Masters.

ROUNDS 5 & 6 of the WCWA 2018 Race Schedule happening on the South Saskatchewan River between the Broadway Bridge and Univesity Bridge on July 21 & 22.

The Western Canadian Watercross Association (WCWA) promotes Jet Ski racing in western Canada. This year’s tour consists of eight rounds over four weekends throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan. At each event there is stand-up / runabout racing, freestyle and a v-wake competition which was introduced in 2016.

We offer different types of classes no matter what your experience level. If you’re new to the sport we have a beginner’s class where you can try out the course and have Canada’s top riders teach you the ropes. Or if you want to test your skill you can line up against the 26 time world champion Mike Klippenstien in one of the pro classes.

For 2017 the classes consist of Beginner Ski, Beginner Women’s Ski, Novice Ski Stock, Novice Ski Open, Novice Masters Ski Open, Sport Spec, Freestyle, Pro Am Women’s Ski, Pro Am Ski Lites, Pro Am Ski Open, Pro Am Vet Ski, Amateur Ski Open, Expert Ski Limited and Pro-Am Runabout Open.

Each weekend is filled with hours of high octane fun. The racing combines speed, skill and sheer raw power producing non-stop action. While Freestyle provides improbable feats of artistry and insane aerial acrobatics. Racing typically concludes around supper time but the family time continues well into the evening.

Since 2012 the WCWA has more than doubled its rider entries continues to grow every year. If you make it to one of our races you will notice that we are one big family and everyone is willing lend a helping hand. If someone’s ski breaks, there are always multiple people willing pitch in and figure out how to fix it.

June 10th / 11th Rattlesnake Lake, Alberta
June 24th / 25th Blackstrap Lake, Saskatchewan
July 15th / 16th Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
