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.
OFSAA has a wide variety of partners that it works with over the course of the year. OFSAA is very integrated into the provincial sport scene.
