President’s Note

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] would like to welcome all our readers to this edition of the OCAA’s premier source of the world of collegiate sport.  A big thank you goes out to both Humber College & Algonquin College and their respective journalism programs for continued support of athletics and academics with the publication of sweat magazine.

It’s that time of year again when the fields and gyms of colleges across Ontario are abuzz with action in what aims to be another history setting year in the OCAA.  We are proud to be celebrating the OCAA’s 50th season this year as we have come a long way from our humble beginnings in 1967 with thousands of student-athletes competing in 17 sports representing 29 institutions across Ontario.  Watch for the 50th season celebrations at all OCAA events this year.

As we approach the next 50 seasons we look to our student athletes as our leaders of tomorrow enhancing their educational experience through sport and holding true to the commitment to not only themselves but their respective teams and schools.

You are the OCAA – so get out and catch some great collegiate sport – you definitely won’t be disappointed.

I would also like to extend our sincere thanks to all those schools who have played host to our fall championships; these experiences will stay with all involved for the rest of their lives.

On behalf the OCAA, its central office, executive and member institutions I would like to extend best wishes to all the student-athletes as we celebrate our 50th season of OCAA sport.

Yours in sport,
Scott Gray
