OFSAA is committed to providing our members with opportunities for professional development each year. OFSAA coordinates the Women's Sport School in even years and the Coed Coaching Symposium in odd years.
The Women's Sport School is targeted to female educators at the secondary and elementary panel, and provides sessions that introduce participants to new curriculum, activites and instruction methods with respect to school sport.
The co-ed Coaching Symposium is open to everyone who is active in coaching within the school system. The symposium provides delegates with new sport specific skills, drills and discussion topics that are associated with coaching.
In addition to programs at the provincial level, teachers actively provide student-athletes with opportunities to attend development clinics, provide sport specific training, or achieve officials’ certification that all help in encouraging students to stay involved in athletics.
