Name of creator
The Amateur Athletic Union of Canada (AAUC), Saskatchewan Branch, was a province-wide organization to support amateur sport in Saskatchewan. It was active in the 1920s and was re-organized November 25, 1950. The reorganized group was governed by a four member executive as well as representatives for Registration, Track and Field, Boxing, Records, and Gymnastics. The re-organized executive consisted of C.H. Garvie, George Ward, E.W. Griffiths, and E.W. Stinson.
The Saskatchewan Branch was an oversight body for several amateur sports in the province including track and field, boxing, gymnastics, wrestling, and fencing. It helped organize provincial championships and administer competitions and competition rules through its member clubs, such as the Eclectic Club of Saskatoon. The Saskatchewan Branch was part of the AAUC, which was founded in 1909 in Montreal, Quebec from an amalgamation of the Canadian Amateur Athletic Union and the Amateur Athletic Federation of Canada. It is unclear what happened to the AAUC and its provincial branches following the significant sporting administration changes at the federal level in the 1970s.
