OCAA Delays Start To Winter Season
The Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) has announced a two week delay of the start to their winter season, which will be “reevaluated as per the trajectory of the pandemic.”
The OCAA governs college sport in Ontario, including competition by area schools such as St. Clair College, Fanshawe College, and Lambton College.
According to an OCAA news release,
“This decision was made based on a number of factors including the higher transmission rate of the new Omicron variant of COVID-19 and in response to the request from Ontario Public Health to reduce interactions and impose additional measures.”
Impacted sports include badminton, basketball, curling, indoor soccer and volleyball.
