See the rich sporting history of Yorkton, SK Canada. The Yorkton Sports Hall of Fame and Museum strives to preserve our Home Town Heroes. Since 1994, we have inducted 74 athletes and builders representing 29 sports, 17 teams in six sports, and five members of the media.
The Hall of Fame organization was inactive for several years, but in 2020 elected a new board of directors which is working with many of the original founders to revive the organization, seek new and expanded facilities and create a strong online presence.
Nominations for inductees into the Yorkton Sports Hall of Fame are now being accepted. The deadline for submitting applications is May 31, 2022. The Sports Hall of Fame expects to hold an induction ceremony in the fall of 2022.
