The Saskatchewan Powerlifting Association is currently seeking sponsors for the 2016 Provincial team that will represent Saskatchewan at the 2016 Canadian Powerlifting Union National Championships in Regina, SK, from February 15-20. Last year, with the help of our sponsors, we were able to outfit our entire team that went to St. John's, NL with a team tshirt and zip up for free! It is our hope we are able to that for our team again this year.
If you and/or your company are interested in sponsoring our team, you can find our sponsorship levels below. There are four sponsorship levels, and the top levels have limited spots available, so do not delay on contacting us. For more information, please see the sponsorship document below, or contact Ryan Fowler, Saskatchewan Powerlifting Association President, at email@example.com.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in February,
