The Martensville Community Recreation Project (MCRP) has been working together for the betterment of our community since 2013. It was at this time that a group of individuals saw the desperate need for another recreation facility within the community. As a growing community, Martensville has many different sports groups available to its residents including, but not limited to; Minor Hockey, Ringette, Softball, Football, Lacrosse, Basketball, Public Skating, Soccer, Volleyball, Rec Youth/Adult Hockey, Senior Hockey and Figure Skating.
Currently, Martensville has a population of approximately 10,800 and growing, and consists of a fairly young population. For anyone that makes a visit to the current Sports Centre within the community, it is clear to see that there is a need for another facility and thanks to the hard work and determination from the MCRP; their dream has come to fruition.
On Friday, November 15th, the MCRP was acknowledged for the countless hours that they have dedicated to this project. This day marked National Philanthropy Day, and the Association of Fundraising Professionals Saskatoon Chapter presented the MCRP with an award in the category of Honoured Supporter at the AFP Saskatoon National Philanthropy Day luncheon, which was held at Prairieland Park.
The City of Martensville nominated the group, as they have witnessed their contribution to this project firsthand and have seen the accomplishments that this group has been able to create within the community.
