OFSAA officially nixes winter sports championships

Following on the heels of last month’s cancellation of national winter sports championships for university teams by U-Sports, provincial championships for high schools, under the auspices of OFSAA, have also been cancelled for the upcoming season, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

OFSAA statement, November 5

Back in August, the provincial governing body announced the cancellation of fall sports championships.

With the ongoing (and escalating) state of the COVID-19 pandemic, the further cancellation of 2020-21 winter championships comes as no surprise.

Schools, operating in a modified environment this fall, have not offered any competitive sports. This is expected to continue through the winter, though no official announcement has yet been made.
