Thank you to the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport and the Ministry of Education for their generous contributions and support.
A Word from OFSAA’s Executive Director At the time of writing, there is much uncertainty about the delivery of school sport in Ontario. This is an unfortunate situation and one that has created many questions with few answers. By the time this publication arrives in schools, the situation may have changed significantly and hopefully in a positive way, however it is important that we clarify OFSAA’s intentions with respect to our championships given the current environment. OFSAA will be proceeding with championships provided there is a convenor in place to organize the event and a sufficient number of teams/athletes/associations able to participate (determined on a case-by-case basis). All athletes attending championships must have proper supervision as per the OFSAA supervision policy. If a convenor withdraws from hosting we will attempt to find a replacement, while taking into consideration time constraints and financial implications. Clearly we hope there is a quick resolution to the current situation and that school sport is back in all schools contributing once again to student success. In the meantime, we will respond to information as it becomes available and make decisions regarding OFSAA programs and services on a continuing basis. Au moment de la rédaction, beaucoup d'incertitude entoure le sport scolaire en Ontario. Il s'agit d'une situation regrettable qui soulève de nombreuses questions pour lesquelles il n'y a que peu de réponses. Lorsque cette publication arrivera dans les écoles, la situation pourrait avoir considérablement évolué et ce, nous l’espérons, de façon positive. Cependant, il est important de clarifier les intentions de l'OFSAA concernant les championnats dans le contexte actuel.
Les championnats de l'OFSAA auront lieu à condition qu'un coordonnateur soit prêt à organiser l'événement et qu'un nombre suffisant d'équipes/ d'athlètes/d'associations soit en mesure d'y participer (nombre qui sera déterminé en fonction de chaque cas). Tous les athlètes qui participent aux championnats doivent bénéficier d'une surveillance adéquate selon la politique de surveillance de l'OFSAA. Si un coordonnateur décide de ne pas accueillir un événement, nous tenterons de trouver un remplaçant, tout en tenant compte des contraintes de temps et des conséquences financières. Nous espérons vivement une résolution rapide de la situation actuelle et le retour du sport scolaire dans toutes les écoles afin qu'il puisse contribuer à nouveau au succès des élèves. En attendant, nous réagirons aux nouveaux renseignements à mesure qu'ils seront disponibles et prendrons alors les décisions qui s'imposent concernant les programmes et services de l'OFSAA.
OFSAA is of fering a subsidy program to sc hools interested in conducting an of f iciating clinic for high sc hool students. The intent of the program is to encourage students to get involved in spor t as an of f icial by reducing or eliminating the cost barrier associated wit h cer tif ication. We also hope to get students involved in spor t who are not necessarily interested in being an athlete. This program will help build student conf idence, provide an oppor tunity for employment, and assist in f illing of f icial shor tages in the province. There is limited funding available. Applications will be approved on a f irst come, f irst ser ved basis. If they wish, multiple sc hools within the same area can join together to of fer a course to help maximize the number of par ticipants. Courses must lead to either full or par tial cer tif ication, and courses MUST be endorsed/recognized by the spor t ’s Provincial or National Spor ts Body. For more information and to access the application form, please visit the OFSAA website and f ind the Of f iciating Clinic Subsidy under Programs. Questions can be directed to Mic hael Suraci at mic firstname.lastname@example.org.

New Official OFSAA Championship Basketball for 2013-14 Beginning in September 2013, all OFSAA Basketball Championships will be using the NEW Spalding TF-1000 LEGACY Basketball. The LEGACY basketball replaces the TF-1000 ZK Pro. Spalding is excited to announce the launch of its LEGACY basketball which was designed based on feedback it received for improvement of the ZK Pro. Specifically, the LEGACY ball addresses concerns regarding ball slickness. The shell of the LEGACY basketball is foam infused which allows for better grip and improved moisture management. The shell is also built into the bladder which prevents panels from peeling for greater durability. The channel depth has also been adjusted to find a perfect balance for shooting and dribbling. The TF-1000 LEGACY is ready to play right out of the box with no need to â€œwork it inâ€? prior to competition! Contact your local retail to order the NEW Spalding TF-1000 LEGACY or contact Kevin Sookram at Kevin.Sookram@fotlinc.com or 905-607-3865 ext 5414 for any questions you have regarding where you can purchase the new LEGACY basketball. Any questions regarding the use of the TF-1000 LEGACY at OFSAA competition can be directed to Michael Suraci at email@example.com or 416-426-7440.

The OFSAA Experience - Justin Fui Justin Fui is a student at Sir Winston Churchill and member of their football team from Thunder Bay, Ontario. The following is his account of the 2012 OFSAA Football Northern Bowl between the Sir Winstorn Churchill Trojans and St. Mary's Knights from Sault Ste. Marie.
It’s 5:10 a.m. on Monday November 26th, 2012 and I have just arrived at the Thunder Bay Airport. My nerves are already a little shaken as I am 10 minutes late. I grab my equipment bag and carry on and head for the front door. As I walk through the automatic sliding doors, Coach Doromko greets me with a “Good Morning Fui, thanks for being on time”. I….I…yeah, I’ve got nothing. He points me to the WestJet counter and I check in. Before I know it we are walking out of Toronto’s Pearson Airport and boarding a bus destined for the Rogers Centre. We check into our rooms, which have a view of the field, and I finally get to take a nap. But do you think I can sleep? No! So we decide to take a tour of Downtown Toronto. After a team dinner at a local Restaurant we head back to Coach’s room to watch some game tape and make our final preparations for tomorrow’s big game. Wake up time tomorrow…..6:00 a.m.! It’s finally here! Game day baby! We get up and shake off the sleep, eat our Cliff Bars and apples and have a Gatorade to hydrate. We grab all of our gear and hustle down to the lobby to meet our coaches and find our way into the Rogers Centre. Once we get down to field level and talk to an OFSAA offiicial, we find out that we get to get changed in the Grey Cup Champion Toronto Argonaut’s dressing room two days after the 100th Grey Cup! OK time to get warmed up. As I walk out of the change room I am greeted by a huge drum line, former Buffalo Bills kicker Steve Christie, an entire sideline of OUA scouts and Buffalo Bills Cheerleaders. I have to stay focused. We go through our warm up routine and it helps calm the nerves. Finally it’s kickoff time for the Northern Bowl. Sir Winston Churchill Trojans (Thunder Bay) vs St Mary’s Knights (Sault Ste. Marie). We battle hard for 48 minutes, but unfortunately we come up a little bit short in the end. After the Award Ceremony a bunch of us wander over to the OUA coaches and talk football for a while and discuss the possibility of attending university and playing football in the CIS. Waiting for us back in the dressing room are 20 pizzas and a bunch of Gatorade! We get changed and check out of our rooms and head back to the Rogers Centre to watch the rest of the Bowl Games until we have to catch our flight back home later in the evening. Wow, what a whirlwind of a trip! Such a great experience to be able to compete against Northern Ontario’s best in a venue like the Rogers Centre! Thank you OFSAA! By Justin Fui

Important Reminders Regarding Sanctioned Events Athletic directors and heads of physical education are asked to make sure ALL coaches are fully aware of the requirements for hosting or attending interprovincial or US events. Applications for OFSAA sanction are due 30 days prior to the start of the invitational. "OFSAA-sanctioned" means that all players are eligible under OFSAA rules and regulations, and the OFSAA supervisory policy is in effect. For Interprovincial competitions • Schools must receive OFSAA sanction in order to participate For attendance at US events • If the event is sanctioned by the host state or the National Federation, schools MUST get OFSAA sanction
• Often this information is not in the registration materials, so schools are advised to get OFSAA sanction for all US events. For hosting U.S. teams • Many US schools must attend only events sanctioned by the host state, so it again is recommended that you get OFSAA sanction for any events involving US teams, or that team may be sanctioned by their state when they return Check out the OFSAA website under Events - Sanctioned Invitationals to make sure the event you are hosting has been correctly entered, or to confirm that you are approved to attend events in other provinces or the US. You can also check the National Federation website to find invitational events to attend (www.nfhs.org).

Ophea Opens Safety Guidelines to all Ontario Residents The Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines (Safety Guidelines), available in English and French, represent the minimum standards for risk management practice for physical education, physical activities and sports within school boards. They outline safe practices for physical activities to minimize the risk of accidents or injuries. The Safety Guidelines are a valuable online resource for all school board staff, principals, teachers, coaches and parents in Ontario.
http://safety.ophea.net or contact email@example.com The Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines have been developed, and continue to be maintained, in partnership with OSBIE, CIRA-ON, OFSAA and OASPHE.
Historically, the Safety Guidelines have been available on a subscription-only basis.

OFSAA Bills Toronto Series Football Bowls Toronto
November 27, 2012
While Toronto was still celebrating the Grey Cup Championship, over 6,000 enthusiastic spectators were entertained with five great football bowl games inside the Rogers Centre where weather did not factor in the outcome. The Rogers Centre hosted the fifth annual OFSAA Football Bowl Series with the support of the Buffalo Bills Toronto Series. We are extremely appreciative of the Bills Toronto Series who provided the Rogers Centre at virtually no cost. Rogers TV played an important role in the OFSAA bowl games by televising four games across its network. Rogers included a sports desk which handled half time analysis and interviews from their location on the field. Thanks especially to the organizing committee who did a fantastic job in organizing the event: Sean Allen,Campbell Blake, Dan Del Mastro, Dan Dominico, Shawn MacDonald, Brian Gaw, Ken Green, Chick Kennedy, Dana McKiel, Peter Morris, Mario Pietrangelo, Erica Phillips, Pat Reilly, Dan Russell, and the many student volunteers who ensured that the event ran smoothly. Thanks to our many other sponsors : Marchant’s School Sports; Pizza/Pizza, Rogers TV, Enwave, Toronto Sun, Josten’s Rings, City TV and Gatorade. The OFSAA Football Bowl Series could not have happened without your continued support. Thanks to the Toronto Argonaut players and General Manager Jim Barker who brought the Grey Cup to the OFSAA Championship to allow the players to celebrate as well.
Northern Bowl Champions - St. Mary's College
GAME 1 – Northern Bowl St. Mary’s College (Sault Ste. Marie) 47 vs Sir Winston Churchill (Thunder Bay) 28 St. Mary’s was making their fourth appearance at the Northern Bowl and captured their third championship with a very close 47-28 victory over Sir Winston Churchill. It was the third visit to Toronto for Sir Winston Churchill who have yet to claim their first championship. Led by Dylan Hebert’s three touchdowns, St. Mary’s jumped out to an almost insurmountable 33-6 half-time lead. Churchill quarterback, Jarred White threw three second half touchdowns to Devyn Chenier, Julian Schulz, and Justin Fui respectively to close the gap but St. Mary's held on. GAME 2 – Golden Horseshoe Bowl Lakeshore Catholic (Port Colborne) 29 vs M.M. Robinson (Burlington) 28 In what may have been the most exciting game of the day, Lakeshore Catholic was able to edge out M.M. Robinson by scoring with only 10 seconds remaining to capture the Golden Horseshoe Championship 29 - 28. Lakeshore Catholic was making its seventh trip to the championship game, while M.M. Robinson made their inaugural appearance. The win marked the third Golden Horseshoe title for Lakeshore Catholic. M.M. Robinson rushed for 234 yards on the day and took the lead early in the second quarter all the way to the final seconds. With 10 seconds remaining in the game, Jeremy Snyder threw a

Kicker Enzo Lariccia converted the four Lakeshore touchdowns. Jacob Jones and Troy Donovan connected on three touchdowns from seven, 14 and 28 yards to lead the M.M. Robinson on offense. Ryan Bond (Robinson) led all defensive players with eight tackles. GAME 3 – National Capital Bowl Frontenac SS (Kingston) 37 vs St. Joan of Arc (Barrie) 30 The National Capital Bowl turned out to be yet another very exciting game, as it was not decided until Frontenac’s Jacob Riha ran 17 yards into the end zone with under two minutes remaining. The score secured Frontenac its fifth National Capital Bowl Championship.
National Capital Bowl Champions - Frontenac SS
St. Joan of Arc (Barrie), who was making its inaugural appearance after defeating Crestwood SS (five consecutive Bowl appearances) in the regional semi-finals, gave Frontenac all they could handle in this game. St. Joan of Arc continued to come back after Frontenac scored early and often. The play went back and forth in the fourth quarter making the outcome an uncertainty. St. Joan of Arc managed to close the gap to a mere point at 30-29 with less than three minutes remaining when Adam Zussino threw a 31 yard pass and catch touchdown to Jesse Alves. The crowd was on their feet as Frontenac then took the kick off and marched down the field to clinch the victory on the Riha touchdown run. GAME 4 – Western Bowl W.F. Herman (Windsor) 36 vs Assumption College (Brantford) 22 Playing their fourth game in thirteen days, the W.F. Herman Green Griffins (making their fifth appearance in the Western Bowl) looked tired entering the thirdquarter despite leading Assumption 14-7. However, thanks to Jaydon Gauthier who scampered 57 yards for a touchdown in the first minute of the third-quarter, Herman was able to hold on for the win. The team rushed for a total of 319 yards in the game. Austin Sault (Assumption) threw for 215 yards in the

game and completed touchdown strikes to Austin Zuwala (40 yards) and Levi Jamieson (5 yards). The player of the game was Jaydon Gauthier who scored four touchdowns. GAME 5 – Metro Bowl Huron Heights (Newmarket) 28 vs Don Bosco (Etobicoke) 14 Before a large and very enthusiastic crowd, Huron Heights forced the Don Bosco Eagles offense to three first-half turnovers resulting in touchdowns to capture their first Metro Bowl Championship. Don Bosco, making their inaugural appearance, never gave up controlling the second-half with touchdowns from Clinton Leonard and Robert Siino. However, with enough points already on the board, the Warriors from Newmarket controlled the clock and captured their first Metro Bowl Championship.

OFSAA Girls’ Golf Festival Windsor

Though the sun shone, the fierce wind made for a cold day at the 2012 OFSAA Girls’ Golf Festival. As per usual, the athletes persevered and finished the round of 18 holes with smiles on their faces. A play-off was used to determine the second place finisher between Kaitlyn Stoddart (CWOSSA) and Claire Hernandez (YRAA). After starting out with a couple tied holes, Claire was victorious in an exciting end to the day. Claire’s second place finished helped to contribute to YRAA winning the Association Award.

high school golf. He has convened his association league play, hosted OFSAA Boys’ golf twice, and sits as a member of the OFSAA Boys' Golf Sport Advisory Committee.
Following a day of practice round play, coaches and athletes gathered in the Twenty Valley Clubhouse for a fantastic buffet banquet. There was more than enough food, and participants were treated to a slideshow of pictures from the day of golfing before being engaged in an interactive motivational speech from John Murray, a club member, who spoke about family, celebrating success, having a life plan, and of course shared fun stories about the sport of golf.
Day one of the championship had all different types of weather. Temperatures were mild to start the morning but quickly became cooler as the day went on, a downpour of rain soaked a number of golfers who had an early tee-off, while those teeing off later in the day experienced heavier winds. Day two provided some sunshine to help keep the golfers warm during a day where a cold wind was the real story of the day. By late afternoon, golfers had to keep their frustrations in check as high wind gusts moved golf balls all over the green with nothing they could do but watch and wait for an opportunity to putt before the next gust.
Prior to the banquet concluding, the first presentation of the Leadership in School Sport Award in Boys’ golf was made to Bill Lipsett who was nominated by his association. Bill has dedicated over 15 years to coaching
In the end, Luke Moser from St. David CSS (CWOSSA) was able to defeat Hanish Nagrani of Notre Dame College (SOSSA) for the gold medal. However, Hanish was able to enjoy gold as a member of the team from his school, Notre Dame College, who won the Team component of the tournament. Congratulations to all golfers and coaches who braved the cold weather and difficult conditions at this year’s championship. Thank you again to Bill Lipsett and his committee for all their work in ensuring a memorable tournament for all those able to attend.

OFSAA Cross Country Brampton
November 3, 2012
OFSAA Cross Country 2012 was hosted by ROPSSAA of the South Region under the capable leadership of Tim Shannon and Paul Carter, both teachers at Turner Fenton SS. The championship was held at Heart Lake Conservation Area in Brampton and was the third OFSAA Cross Country Championship to take place at Heart Lake. The course was in remarkable shape considering the area had been hit with remnants of Hurricane Sandy. However, race day was partly sunny with little wind and a temperature around four degrees. Almost 1,600 athletes from 340 schools treated approximately 5,000 parents, coaches, and friends to six exciting races on a true cross country course with its unique character especially the run around the lake. Congratulations to Tim and Paul and their entire organizing committee from ROPSSAA for convening the 2012 Championship. OFSAA would also like to thank the numerous volunteers who worked throughout the day to ensure the success of the championship. NIKE Canada acted again as the official sponsor of the event. The athlete’s village added a positive atmosphere surrounding the event. NIKE also introduced the popular web site for athletes and schools (www.runnerspace.com/ofsaa) for both Cross Country & Track. We encourage athletes, coaches, and parents to visit the site. All OFSAA races were videotaped and can be seen on the site. This was the first year of the Para Invitational Race

OFSAA Boys’ A Volleyball Belleville
November 22 - 24, 2012
Convenor John VanderWindt (Quinte Christian HS) and his committee were prepared to welcome the province to the city of Belleville for three exciting days of volleyball. Quinte Christian HS (COSSA) has started to build a dynasty of championships with gold medal wins in both of the last two OFSAA Championships. This year they were hoping to make it three with the championship being held in their home gym. The participants gathered at the host school to share in a banquet dinner. As part of the evening, presentation of the Leadership in School Sport Award was made to Gratien Pellerin from É.S. Marc Garneau (COSSA). Gratien has been a dedicated teacher-coach to cross-country, track and field, volleyball, and basketball. He is well respected by his colleagues who often speak to the time and dedication he puts into coaching students. When Gratien isn’t coaching, he stays busy by convening association championships and tournaments and training for the Boston Marathon. Pool A Quinte Christian H.S.

After some tight matches in the pool play portion of the tournament eight strong teams emerged to compete in the championship playoffs.

OFSAA Boys’ AA Volleyball Stratford
November 22 - 24, 2012
For the second year in a row, OFSAA Boys’ AA Volleyball returned to Stratford. Convenors Martin Ritsma (Stratford Northwestern) and Pat Donnelly (FE Madill School), along with a team of volunteers welcomed teams and ensured participants had a wonderful experience. A banquet dinner at the Rotary Complex started off the championship where Jim Woolley, OFSAA President, provided a welcome on behalf of OFSAA and introduced the Leadership in School Sport Award. This year’s award was presented to Kenton Klassen (WOSSAA) for his years of dedication to coaching high school sport. Kenton has been instrumental to the success of the FE Madill volleyball program and has also been a great role model to younger teachers. The Stratford Agriplex is becoming a home to OFSAA sports, having already hosted an OFSAA Hockey, two OFSAA Badmintons and two OFSAA Volleyballs in its only five years in existence. The fantastic facility allowed all teams to compete at the same venue, creating a busy atmosphere with something
always going on. The athletes battled through strong round-robin play and after the playoff rounds, College Catholique SamuelGenest (NCSSAA) hoped to dethrone Eden HS (SOSSA) in the gold medal match. However, Eden’s reign at the top was not going to end this year as the team took home gold for the incredible seventh year in a row with a 3-1 match win. Congratulations to Jonathan Wismer, Elijah Lopez, Reed Markham, Connor Smith, Matthew Bate, Luke Wall, Graham Boese, Aaron Wiersma, Austin Dick, Spencer Edwards, Steven Falk, Noah Janzen, Cameron Klassen, Ryan Langendoen and coaches Albino Pereira and Bill Markham. The Team Sportsmanship Award was presented to silver medallists College Catholique Samuel-Genest. The committee felt they represented themselves and their school proudly throughout the tournament, were positive in win and defeat and were a great group of students to have at the championship.

OFSAA Boys’ AAA Volleyball Kingston
November 22 - 24, 2012 the victim of an elaborate rouse that had him believing he was presenting the award to another coach. Several teacher-coaches spoke to Mark’s dedication to coaching, the amount of time he gives to the kids, the success he has had with his school programs and could think of no one more deserving. Day one of the tournament had a number of three set matches, demonstrating the strength of competition at this year’s event. Enthusiastic crowds supported the home team throughout the championship, providing an electric atmosphere for all match play. This theme continued into the playoff rounds and eventually concluded with a five set gold medal match which crowned Chatham-Kent SS as the 2012 AAA champions.
Kingston was the site for this year’s Boys’ AAA Volleyball Championship. Using the great facilities at Queen’s University as well as those at the local high schools, convenor Pat Farrell of Regiopolis-Notre Dame (EOSSAA) and an experienced tournament hosting crew worked to ensure a memorable experience to all in attendance. Starting with a banquet dinner at the Ambassador Hotel Ballroom, attendees were entertained by a hypnotist who had the crowd laughing with the ridiculous antics of the student participants. The Leadership in School Sport Award was presented to Mark McKenna of RegiopolisNotre Dame, something that surprised Mark as he was Pool A Chatham-Kent S.S. Widdifield S.S. Bur Oak S.S. I.E.

OFSAA Boys’ AAAA Volleyball Hamilton
November 22 - 24, 2012
Convenors Andrea McCabe and Antoinette Krusto of Cathedral HS (GHAC) are quickly becoming professionals at hosting volleyball championships, having taken on the responsibility for the second year in a row. Kicking off the championship with a banquet at Carmen’s Banquet Centre, the athletes were provided with as much as they could eat while enjoying draw prizes, guest speakers, and an opportunity to bond with their team before hitting the floor the next morning. The banquet also allowed for the presentation of the Leadership in School Sport Award, which was given to Joe Lackovic of Bishop Ryan CSS (GHAC). Joe has been involved as a teacher-coach for 15 years with a passion for coaching volleyball. He works with both the girls' and boys' teams at all levels and has achieved success not only within GHAC but also at OFSAA. Joe is highly respected by his peers who were proud to present this award to such a deserving coach. Using three different high schools in the Hamilton area, the championship began early the next morning with teams eager to take the court. The story of this championship was the depth of competition which proved to be a significant challenge for the seeding committee who felt it wouldn’t be a surprise if any one of ten teams took home the gold.

A special thanks needs to be extended to all the fans who came out to support their teams. The loud crowds added to the exciting atmosphere and certainly played a role in motivating teams. The championship match saw number one and two seeds, Bill Crothers SS (YRAA) and Waterloo CI (CWOSSA) square-off in an exciting contest. However, on this day, Bill Crothers was too strong and captured the gold medal with a 3-1 match win. Congratulations to Keeyan Arvandi, Andrew McCulloch, Lucas Coleman, Nathan Walker, Shawn Brooks, Ben White, Joshua Kidd, Daniel Sutharman, Malik Lindo-Ireland, Cole Palma, Christian Petroff, Gibson Graham, Mac Coleman, Kieran Arnold and coaches Rob Jones and Jonathan Lam. The championship organizers were pleased to award the Team Sportsmanship Banner to Rick Hansen SS (ROPSSAA). The team was not only respectful of their opponents but also took the time to thank site convenors for their efforts in coordinating the championship. Following matches, even after suffering a difficult loss, the team applauded all their fans to thank them for all their support. The athletes and coaches truly represented the spirit of school sport and their school and administration should be very proud of their team.
