OFSAA cancels spring championships due to COVID-19 crisis

Press Release

A statement from Nick Rowe, OFSAA President:
As we continue to cope in these challenging times with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with great disappointment that we announce Tuesday [March 31] the cancellation of the remaining 2020 spring OFSAA championships and festivals.
On behalf of the OFSAA Executive Council and all of our staff, we are thankful for the commitment and passion of all student-athletes, coaches, convenors and volunteer host organizing committees to this point in the school year.
Volunteers are the driving force in the planning efforts and execution of these events. A sincere thank you to each and every one of the volunteers across the province.
As we endure this uncertain coronavirus health crisis, OFSAA will continue to follow the direction of public health experts and government agencies.
We eagerly look forward to when we can safely get back to the classroom and when sport returns to our school communities. Stay safe and healthy.
For each of the cancelled events in 2020, OFSAA recognizes the commitment and dedication of the convenors of each of the championships and festivals.
