When OFSAA’s representative council elected to transition high school basketball in Ontario to the International (FIBA) system at our AGM in 2015, the most significant change was the incorporation of the 35-second shot clock.
Through intensive research on the feasibility of installation, maintenance, mass availability, and electrical safety, OFSAA was careful with the selection of NEVCO and Scoreboard Man as our official clock.
NEVCO is the oldest and largest privately held scoreboard and display manufacturer in the industry. Based in Barrie, they installed their first scoreboard in 1934. Paul Leskew and his team at the Scoreboard Man have been in business since 1971, are based in Orillia, and are the NEVCO representatives for Ontario.
Shot clocks will be lent to OFSAA for our Girls’ and Boys’ tournaments (A, AA, AAA) and schools hoping to simulate OFSAA conditions during league play can elect to purchase shot clocks of their own.
OFSAA, NEVCO, and Scoreboard Man have teamed up to provide safe and reliable options for purchase and installation of shot clocks. We are happy to have partners that believe in the vision of OFSAA and support athletic programming in our high schools.
