OFSAA Partners with AKPro

Monday, August, 15, 2011

OFSA is pleased to announce that the Grays Astrotec Dimple Ball from AKPro has been named the official field hockey ball of OFSAA. AKPro is one of the leading field hockey equipment suppliers in Canada. They will be sponsoring the OFSAA Field Hockey Championship (link to website), and the Grays Astrotec Dimple Ball will be used in all games.

OFSAA’s partnership with AKPro will continue now through the 2012-13 school year.  For more information about AKPro and their products, please visit www.akprocanada.com.


OFSAA is a federation of 18 regional school athletic associations geographically spread across the province. We are comprised of student-athletes, teacher-coaches, principals, and sport administrators all committed to the philosophy of education through school sport.


OFSAA has many resources available to coaches to assist them in successfully leading their student-athletes.

Coaches are the most important part of school sport programs, and without them many students would not have the opportunity to develop academically, socially, and emotionally, as well as in sport.

OFSAA encourages coaches to become qualified through our Coaching in Ontario Schools program (link to Coaching in Ontario Schools page), which is NCCP accredited.
