High school sports suffered another blow when OFSAA cancelled its winter championships.

The fall championships also weren’t held because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“After a meeting of our Return to Sports Working Group in recent days, OFSAA’s executive council determined that the current reopening regulations within the province have not progressed to the point where our winter championships and festivals can take place,” OFSAA president Nick Rowe said in a statement. “… The Group will continue to monitor the feasibility of OFSAA spring sports.”

The decision applies to boys’ basketball, girls’ volleyball, hockey, curling, swimming and wrestling, as well as snowboarding, alpine skiing and nordic skiing.

The Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations didn’t crown hockey champions last season, either, when the tournaments were cancelled in March because of the pandemic.
