Given the Government of Ontario's decision Thursday to close all publicly-funded schools for two weeks following the upcoming March Break, and given the widespread health measures imposed due to COVID-19, OFSAA is cancelling the boys' and girls' hockey and curling championships. The championships were scheduled for the first week after March Break.
We want to state that the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, volunteers and all of their families is our first priority. We are grateful for the hard work, long hours and dedication of all coaches, student-athletes, convenors and volunteer host organizing committees.
OFSAA does not take today's decision lightly. We are fully aware of the commitment and planning of our host organizing committees and the drive and determination of the athletes and coaches.
