Team history


The Heat were founded in 2021, marking Saskatoon's first entry in the NRL in a decade after the disbandment of its previous team, the Saskatoon Wild.[2] Mel Brockman, a former Wild player and member of Team Canada, was a part of the establishment of the Heat in September 2021.[3] Colleen Butz-Purdue was named the team's head coach.[2]

Although the team lists Saskatoon as its home, it actively draws players from both the Saskatoon and Regina areas and holds tryouts and training in both cities. Saskatoon hosts the team's home games.[4]

In their inaugural season, the Heat finished in last place at the 2022 NRL Canadian Ringette Championships.[5] The Heat's Holly Kozan was named to the Canadian national junior roster for the 2022 World Ringette Championships in Finland.[6] The 2023 Canadian Ringette Championships were hosted in Regina.[7]
