Announcement Regarding The OFSAA Nordic Skiing Championship

Friday, February 14, 2020

The 2020 OFSAA Nordic Skiing Championship is scheduled for Thursday, February 20 and Friday, February 21. The second day of the championship coincides with the province-wide strike action set for February 21st. 

We have been assessing this situation as it relates to the feasibility of the Championship. At this time, we are announcing that the individual distance races will proceed as scheduled on Thursday, February 20. Due to the strike, the team sprint relays on Friday, February 21 have been cancelled. There will be no competition on that day. Further, the banquet on Thursday has also been cancelled and an awards ceremony will take place at the race venue (Arrowhead Provincial Park) following the final race of the day. 

Association convenors must submit their registration forms immediately upon confirmation of entries. Coaches must complete the registration process by Saturday, February 15 at 11:59 p.m.
