[REGINA, Sask] – CURLSASK, the provincial sport organization for curling in Saskatchewan, announced a new partnership today with Viterra for the upcoming curling season.
“We are thrilled to announce Viterra as the Official Youth Development Partner of Curling in Saskatchewan,” said Ashley Howard, Executive Director, CURLSASK. “As we look to return to sport, the new partnership will play a pivotal role in providing the opportunity for more youth to access, learn, and enjoy Saskatchewan’s official provincial sport.”
