SAKT 2020 – A Smart & Safe Reimagined Tournament

We all know 2020 has had its challenges due to COVID-19. In order to still put on a fun and safe kickball tournament, we have three plans in place, and the health of this region at the time of the event will guide us in which plan we utilize. First is to play kickball. Second is to have 10 different “games of kickball skills” – one at each diamond – in which teams can score “runs” while practicing proper social distancing and limiting the equipment contact. Third, is to conduct a completely virtual event. See our “SAKT 2020 Smart Start Safety Guidelines” for more information.

SAKT 2020 Proceeds Will SAVE LIVES

Proceeds WILL SAVE LIVES by upgrading transport and crash cart defibrillators throughout the hospital. On a monthly basis, an average of 10 “Code Blues” are called within the hospital for either patients or visitors, in which our health care team responds to save the individual’s life. Defibrillators play a major role in this endeavor as they are used to monitor necessary vital signs as a person is transferred from one area of the hospital to the next; and by offering the electric jolt needed to bring a heart’s rhythm back to normal.

Volunteer as a SAKT 2020 Umpire

Umpiring has never been easier as we are playing “Games of Skill” instead of an actual game. You just need to keep track of the “runs scored” for each team at your diamond. To learn more as to how you can help a great cause, please contact Kilee at 701.530.7394 or EMAIL.
