What is the After-School Time Period (ASTP) Program Directory?

The directory of After-School Time Period (ASTP) programs focuses on opportunities which are available for children and youth in Saskatchewan between the ages of 5 and 18, delivered during the hours of 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM over the school year.

What is the purpose of the ASTP Program Directory?

To provide information for communities, parents, schools and stakeholders on the sport, culture and recreational opportunities available for young people in the After-School Time Period.  The directory is an informational tool to promote sport, culture and recreation programs and organizations in your area.

You can locate programs in your area, find activities that are appropriate for different ages, and see opportunities to participate or collaborate with others in your community. 

What if I want to add a program to the ASTP Directory?

You can add your program information to our directory at any time using the input form. Once the information has been reviewed, your program will be viewable online as part of the directory. A user guide has been provided to help with completing the input form.

What programs are eligible to be included in the ASTP Program Directory?

If your program is directed at children or youth in Saskatchewan between the ages of 5 and 18, delivered during the hours of 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM over the school year then it's eligible to be included as part of the ASTP Program directory.

Who can complete the Program Input Form Online?

Anyone can complete the form, provided that the contact information for the coordinator/organizer, host organization as well as the information about your program is complete and meets the specification above.

What if I can’t access the web to complete the input form?

Contact our Swift Current Office and we would be happy to collect the details from you via email or telephone and complete the online form on your behalf.

What if I want to change the information in the directory about my program or remove it altogether?

If you need to change the details of your program, or would like your information removed from our directory, please contact our Swift Current Office at 306-778-1091 or email kwood@spra.sk.ca.

Where did the information in the ASTP Program Directory come from?

SPRA circulated a provincial survey in November 2012, inviting people to tell us about their ASTP programs and practices. SPRA then analyzed the responses, summarized the findings in a report and used the basic program information collected to develop an online directory of programs. 

Who was the survey distributed to?

Included within the distribution of the survey were: SPRA Members, Sport, Culture and Recreation Districts, Organizations and Provincial Partners, Municipalities, School Divisions, Community Schools and First Nation & Metis communities.  A more comprehensive list can and details of the distribution implementation can be found in our Inventory report.

What were the findings from the information gathered?

The “After-School Time Period Inventory Report” outlines the project framework as well as providing an overview and analysis of the findings from the survey.

What if I don’t want my program to be included in the ASTP Program Directory?

If you had indicated that you would not like your program to be part of the directory, we did not include your information in the directory. If you completed the survey your program will have been used to report on generic findings related to programming in the province.
