Statement From Carolyn Chesney, OFSAA President:

In collaboration with representatives from all regions across the province at Wednesday’s OFSAA Executive Council meeting, OFSAA has reached the unfortunate decision to cancel the 2022 winter championships which were scheduled for February and March. 

Back-to-school developments and current conditions factoring into this decision are:

  • The late restart and current uncertainty of when school sports may resume combined with the government’s pause on high contact school sports until an undetermined date.  
  • Local public health restrictions which may prevent the hosting of OFSAA events in certain communities.
  • Allowing local associations to extend seasons of play, and promote participation and student-athlete safety.

The following OFSAA championships/festivals are cancelled: alpine skiing, nordic skiing, snowboarding, basketball, volleyball, hockey and curling. Swimming and wrestling were cancelled earlier with no host convenor in place.

We are thankful for the commitment shown by our convenors and host organizing committee members who volunteered their time during the planning stages of the OFSAA winter championships and festivals.

Despite this cancellation of February and March OFSAA events, we again wish to reiterate our continued support for sports and activity for the benefit of students’ physical and mental well-being. School sports play a vital role in education and in the lives of students.

We remain optimistic for OFSAA spring championships and festivals and plans are moving forward beginning with badminton this May.

Thank you for your understanding and continued patience.
