Presently, all female players in the province of Saskatchewan born in 1983 or later (ie. 1984, 1985) are invited to a regional jamboree, and are given an equal and fair opportunity to continue in the program through different stages. The objective of the Sask First Program is to provide a healthy, enjoyable environment in which female players can undergo skills development and social interaction with their peers. As well, the camp is used as an identification program to monitor players for possible participation in the Canada Winter Games. The S.H.A. currently runs 8 regional jamborees throughout the province and this is where a player's involvement in the program would begin each year. All players attending a regional jamboree are then invited to attend one of the Sask First Spring Festivals. There are two festivals; one for players born in 1986 or later (ie. 1987, 1988) and one for players born in 1983-1986 inclusive. In a summer before a Canada Games year, the top players from the program are selected to attend a summer camp where they will undergo technical, tactical, physical, and mental preparation.
