The Sole-stice Classic is a series of meets for young athletes to get involved in running, jumping and throwing competitions. This program is sponsored by Aboriginal Track & Field of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Athletics.

The term Sole-stice comes from the idea that the “final meet” will be held near the longest day of the year. The meets are geared for younger athletes.

The top two athletes from each regional meet can advance to the Sole-stice Classic Provincial Finals in Saskatoon on June 22.
