OFSAA Offering Student-Athlete And Teacher-Coach Subsidy

Oct 5, 2022 | Subsidy

OFSAA is pleased to extend subsidies once again in the 2022-23 school year! Please learn more about the Student-Athlete Subsidy and the Teacher-Coach Subsidy below.

The OFSAA Student-Athlete Sports Subsidy

Participation in school sport is important and students learn many life skills, so we want all students to have equal opportunity to experience school sport.

OFSAA is offering grants for students who have difficulty finding the monies to pay their athletic fee for league competition.

The current application form can be found HERE and must be used to apply for funds this year. The Student-Athlete Sports Subsidy will also be available in the winter and spring of 2023.

Important Information for schools:

  • The current application must be used. Complete fully, checking off all the items covered by the sport specific fee, and making sure the *parent section* and signature are filled in.
  • To determine grant eligibility, the committee will consider social and economic barriers facing the student’s family as identified by the parents. It is Important that the parents include comprehensive information on the family’s current financial situation.
  • The maximum amount a student may receive is $135.
  • The endorser should be a person aware of the student’s financial situation and needs, and of the breakdown of the athletic fees (general and sport specific). An Athletic Director or Physical Education Department Head may best fit this role.
  • Monies are only approved for inter-school participation fees for regular league play. This grant is not intended to cover any costs associated with exhibition matches, tournament play, or additional costs incurred from qualifying for championships.
  • We may not be able to provide funding for all applicants, so schools should evaluate the students applying and submit forms for those that are most in need.
  • Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Applications for the fall subsidy must be received by the deadline date of October 31, 2022.
  • This subsidy will also be available for winter sports (Deadline – Jan. 31/23) and spring sports (Deadline – Apr. 28/23).

La participation au sport scolaire offre des expériences enrichissantes et hautement formatives. La FASSO tient à niveler les chances dans ce domaine en offrant des subventions aux élèves qui ont de la difficulté à couvrir les frais d’inscription à une ligue sportive. Le formulaire de demande se trouve sur le site Web de la FASSO. Le formulaire est obligatoire ICI pour demander une subvention cette année.

Information importante pour les écoles: 

  • Il est obligatoire d’utiliser le formulaire de demande le plus récent. Le formulaire doit être rempli au complet, y compris l’information sur les frais d’inscription. Notamment, les parents doivent remplir et signer la section Situation familiale.
  • Le comité de sélection tiendra compte des obstacles socio-économiques auxquels la famille est confrontée. Il est donc important que les parents fournissent suffisamment de détails au sujet de leur situation financière.
  • La subvention maximale est de 135 $ par élève.
  • L’endosseur devrait être au courant de la situation financière et des besoins de l’élève, ainsi que des frais d’inscription (tant les frais généraux de participation au sport inter-scolaire que les frais liés au sport pratiqué par l’élève). Il pourrait s’agir de la direction des activités sportives ou du chef du département d’éducation physique.
  • Les fonds sont octroyés seulement pour couvrir les frais de participation aux ligues sportives inter-scolaires. Les coûts de participation à des matchs de démonstration ou à des tournois, ainsi que les coûts supplémentaires de qualification pour les championnats, ne sont pas admissibles.
  • Les fonds sont limités. L’école devrait effectuer une présélection et soumettre les demandes des élèves dont les besoins sont les plus grands.
  • Les demandes seront traitées selon le principe du premier arrivé, premier servi.
  • La date limite de réception des demandes est le 31 octobre 2022.
