Statement From Nick Rowe, OFSAA President:

 

While the COVID-19 pandemic remains fluid, OFSAA Executive Council, in collaboration with OFSAA’s Return To Sports Working Group, has determined that the 2021 spring championships and festivals are cancelled.

OFSAA supports the health and safety measures currently instituted by Public Health and the Government of Ontario. 

Despite this disappointing news, we wish to reiterate our continued support for sports and activity for the benefit of students’ physical and mental well-being. School sports play a vital role in education and in the lives of students.

We know that the coming months present uncertainty, but we eagerly look forward to the time when athletes and coaches can safely return to competition in our provincial championships and festivals!

The Return To Sports Working Group will continue to meet and assess the viability of OFSAA events as the situation evolves. As vaccines become more widely distributed, we are hopeful for a return of OFSAA events as soon as possible. In the meantime, we have introduced new programs such as virtual challenges, the OFSAA Café and a newly-announced Student Forum. 

Thank you for your continued patience and support over the past 11 months, and for your efforts to keep our communities safe.
