Kinesiology Students' Society

They are strong advocates for the College of Kinesiology, the University of Saskatchewan and the Saskatoon community as a whole. They organize many fundraising campaigns, such as our Annual Road Hockey Tournament, where students, staff and faculty assemble teams for a little friendly competition and a deserving Saskatoon charity.
