The OFSAA HUB details page gives more guidelines on using the OFSAA HUB to register for this event.

Step 1 for Association Convenors due 24h after your Association Championship

Association Convenors email the following completed form to [email protected]

  1. OFSAA Association Convenor Registration Form
    • Ensure your Association Championship results include Gender (Male/Female), Classification (Junior/Senior), and Division (Open/High-School trained)
    • Download and complete the form based on the results of your Association Championship and with the help of your teacher-coaches
    • The form is a fillable PDF which can be completed and saved electronically, or printed for completion by hand and then scanned for submission
    • Check your submission against the latest Nordic Playing Regulations with respect to eligibility, entries, team make-up, and additional entry requests
    • Optionally include a link to your Association Championship results, or attach them to the email

Step 2 for Athletic Directors due by midnight Friday 16 Feb 2024

 Athletic Directors must register their school for the Championship by uploading the following mandatory forms through the OFSAA HUB:

Timesaving Tip – Create and register only 1 Senior Coed team in the HUB, listing your eligible athletes of all ages and genders. This way you need only upload 1 set of forms to the HUB and we need only cross-check 1 set of forms for your school. Designating a team as Junior or Senior in the HUB has no bearing on competition, whereas correctly identifying the gender and classification (junior/senior) will be important during Zone4 registration (Step 3) and must match your Association Convenor’s Registration form (Step 1).

Necessary background –

While the number of forms needed for registration has been reduced, the following in many cases will still need to be distributed to athletes, parents and coaches to ensure they understand the agreements they have made by signing the submitted forms:

In particular, Ontario Law specifically mandates that every student-athlete, coach and trainer review the Concussion Awareness Resource and the OFSAA Concussion Code of Conduct.  In order to participate in this event it is mandatory that meaningful confirmation of this requirement is received for each participant.


Step 3 for Coaches due by midnight Friday 16 Feb 2024

Register your athletes, coaches, chaperones, and schools online via Zone4 for racing and the banquet.

  1. Register online at
    • Each school should submit 1 registration via Zone4 that includes all athletes and adults that will be attending OFSAA
    • Be sure you know which adults will be attending the banquet in addition to your athletes
    • All athletes that are members of a team, must attend the banquet, and all other athletes are encouraged to attend
    • All athletes attending the banquet must be accompanied by one or more supervising adults
    • Ensure you know the correct Gender (Male/Female), Classification (Junior/Senior), Division (Open/High-School trained), Qualification (Team/Individual), and spelling of the name for each athlete entered
    • All details (name, gender, classification, division, qualification) must match across your Association Championship results, your Association Convenor Registration form, and all OFSAA paperwork submitted via the OFSAA HUB
    • All adults attending OFSAA in support of your school must also be listed on the appropriate forms uploaded to the OFSAA HUB
    • Zone4 registration will also require each athlete’s Start Order Group as per the OFSAA Nordic Skiing Playing Regulations:
      • Athletes must be registered in one of five start order groups for the Individual Distance event, where start order group one (1) will start first and start order group five (5) will start last.
      • Each member of a qualifying team (4 or 5 skiers) must be entered in a separate start order group. (Coaches MUST NOT enter any two skiers from the same team in the same start order group.)
      • Schools with more than one qualifying team must enter each team separately. For example an “A” and “B” team from the same school must be entered as above.
      • Athletes who are not members of a team may be entered in any of the start order groups.
      • Within each of the five start order groups a full random draw will be used.
      • There is no requirement or expectation that athletes of a particular ability be placed in certain start order groups.
