The CanAm Bowl online store is now open!
Wakaw School is very excited to announce that we are hosting CanAm Bowl XXIII this year!
The CanAm Bowl is an annual six man football game played between grade 12 all-star players from the United States and Canada. The game is hosted by a different high school program in Saskatchewan every year.
The CanAm Bowl began in July of 1997 when an American All-star team made the trip to Canada to play a Saskatchewan All-star team in Porcupine Plain, Saskatchewan hosted by Bjorkdale. The USA won that inaugural game 40 - 22.
The Canadian team will arrive on Tues. July 2nd, and will practice here all week. The American team will arrive on Fri. July 5th, and both teams will attend the banquet planned for that evening. Can Am Bowl XXIII will be held in Wakaw on July 6th, 2019 at ~8:00pm. There will be a tailgate party starting at 3:00 with activities for kids being planned, and a peewee exhibition game at 6:30pm.
This is an amazing opportunity for Wakaw School and Warrior Football. To make it a success, we'll need help from parents and the community. We are still looking for more parent and community volunteers. Putting on an event of this size will take a lot of planning and hours.
Our next planning meeting on Mon. May 27th at 7:00 in the Wakaw School library.
The Sponsorship Package is ready to go, and has been released to the community. It is downloadable here. We ask that if you are thinking of approaching a business or individual for sponsorship, that you coordinate with Erin Standish first. Her contact info is on the Sponsorship Letter.
