The last day to access the Sports Vault at 441 Fairford St W will be on Wednesday, May 1 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. 

The Sports Vault contains donated pieces of sports equipment according to Scott Osmachenko, recreation services manager with the City of Moose Jaw.  

“Most of the time, people will just outgrow the equipment and then donate it to us, and we simply just try to find a second use for it,” said Osmachenko. 

He said that currently, the Sports Vault contains soccer cleats, baseball equipment including cleats and helmets, golf clubs, small sizes of skates, and a few bikes.  

People are free to come pick out items but are asked not to take equipment for reselling. People are also asked to give the equipment to others if they’re still in good condition when the equipment is outgrown. 

The reason for the final Sports Vault opening is the sale of the Fairford Street building. “We are cleaning it all up, refocusing our efforts on a new location in the fall,” explained Osmachenko.  

“We’re trying to find a good location and a way for the public to easily access it.” 

Anyone who wants to donate to the Sports Vault is still able to do so. Green bins labelled “Sports Vault” are available at the Kinsmen Sportsplex and Plamor Palace, and Osmachenko said most requested items are helmets and hockey skates.
