The rest of this year’s spring OFSAA championships and festivals have been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.

In a statement, President Nick Rowe said they’re thankful for the commitment and passion of all student-athletes, coaches, convenors and volunteer host organizing committees to this point in the school year.

He said volunteers are the driving force in the planning efforts and execution of these events, and offered a sincere thank you to every one of the volunteers across the province.

OFSAA said it will continue to follow the direction of public health experts and government agencies, and looks forward to getting safely back to the classroom.

For each of the cancelled events in 2020, OFSAA recognized the commitment and dedication of the convenors of each of the championships and festivals.
