The Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association (UOVHSAA) serves the students of four local School Boards, and works in concert with the School Boards in order to provide extra-curricular leagues for students of our member schools. The coming school year will look different, at least to begin, and our School Boards have made the prudent decision to prioritize the safe return of students and staff to academic programming.
The introduction of inter-school athletics at this time would not support the School Boards’ efforts to minimize student contacts. As a result, our member Boards have decided that there will be no interschool extracurricular athletics for the fall in their schools.
Furthermore OFSAA, the provincial governing body of high school sport, has canceled their fall championships and festivals.
Though we are keen to see our student-athletes return to play in UOVHSAA leagues and individual sports, it is not something that we are able to offer at this point. We will continue to monitor our situation locally, as well as converse with our School Boards and other local and regional associations throughout the province.
Any updates about a return to UOVHSAA play will be posted on our website.
We wish all of our student-athletes, coaches and members a safe return to school, and we look forward to seeing you back on your chosen field of play as soon as it is possible.
