OFSAA wholeheartedly believes in the motto "education through school sport"
High school sport enhances the education of students. School athletics are a continuation of the classroom, and teach life lessons and values such as citizenship, sportsmanship, teamwork, and hard work.
The emphasis on athletics in schools should be to prepare the young people of today with the necessary skills that will allow them to become future productive citizens of society. School sport should be a positive experience for everyone, with priorities placed on developing values.
