Our Athletes

Even Govan has had many great athletes grow up, learn, practise & live here. That is why we decided to create a Govan Hall of Fame. This includes athletes from 50 to 60 years ago! Some of the athletes shown here are from the Saskatchewans Hall of Fame, which is quite amazing! A few of these people listed are still playing the same sport today!

Did you know?

The Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area area was first protected in 1887, when 1025 hectares (ha) of land at the north end of Last Mountain Lake were set aside as breeding grounds for wild fowl, becoming the first federal bird sanctuary in North America.

Over 280 species of birds have been recorded at Last Mountain Lake NWA during migration.

Besides its values as a migratory stopover and a breeding area, Last Mountain Lake NWA provides appropriate habitat for 9 of Canada's 36 species of vulnerable, threatened and endangered birds.

For more information, visit the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area's website at Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area.

Govan Skating Rink

During the winter season the skating rink is a great place to enjoy yourself. The skating rink was built in 1964 and was opened on Feb. 25, 1965. The old rink was moved to Duval, Sask.  This winter we are hoping to have something happening at the skating rink whenever we can. Whether it is public skating, shinny, or actual hockey games!

Govan Hunting


Govan is a hunter's paradise. Hunters from all around North America come out to Govan to hunt the wild game. The local Govan Hotel provides a great service for hunters to stay at night. Govan is a community that's open to many hunters, and many of the local hunters have no problem showing people where the good hunting spots are. Just feel free to ask around!

Please remember to abide by the laws of the province when hunting. 
Before hunting on Private Land please get permission from land owner.

Govan Curling Rink

Govan has always been a real curling town, every year Govan holds many bonspiels in which teams from the local areas enter. Govan also has many talented curlers who have competed at provincial levels. In 1974, there were a group of young boys who won the Provincial Championships, the team consisted of, Gordon Larson (skip), Fred Puffer (third), Robert Martin (second), Don Dabrowski (lead), and Glen Larson (spare). More recently, there was a group of young girls who won the Provincial Championship in 2008. The team consisted of Rachel Fritzler (skip), Kayla Cardiff (third), Alison DeHoop (second), Jodi Sorenson (lead), and Kendra Schulz (spare), these are just some of the great curlers in Govan in local communities. In 1954 a new curling rink was built, with better facilities. In 1955 the new rink was opened.

Interesting Fact: Govan's curling rink was one of the first towns of its size to have artificial ice installed.
