Established in 1948, 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.

As a not-for-profit, our main priority is to work with volunteer teacher-coaches to provide 38 provincial championships and six festivals for Ontario's student-athletes; however we offer other programs and services that enhance school sport in the province. These include scholarships and awards, student leadership programs, coach development programs and resources, tournament sanctioning, and funding that is provided to support athletic programs at the school level. We also take a proactive role in dealing with issues that affect students, coaches, schools and communities.

OFSAA is a not-for-profit organization and a registered charity.
