I am sending you a copy of the memo that I have just sent the Regional Convenors regarding OFSAA T & F
Here is important information for coaches who will qualify athletes to OFSAA . It is important that you pass the information along to everyone ( athletes / parents/ friends) to schools in your association .
The strike at York continues and there are pickets at all entrances .
There are still some local unions leaving the impression that they do not want their members crossing the line . OFSAA has been in communication with the provincial bodies which advise or recommend their members … . They are aware of our communication with teacher coaches indicating that we have taken their position under advisement but will have OFSAA T & F take place at York. We have not received any communication since then indicating a change in their position . They have indicated that they cannot legally demand their members not to cross the lines
Recommendations ( if you are not staying on campus )
* arrive before the pickets go up ( around 8:00 ). They usually come down around 3:00 to 3:30
* take the subway which will drop you off at York
* buses can stop along Steeles Ave or Keele St and drop athletes and coaches off . It is only a short way to go.
Regular buses coming into the subway along Steeles have a zone where they drop off passengers . There are signs with numbers on them.
* Try to be in the stadium a few hours ahead of schedule
The Central Region is hosting their event this week at York . We will see what happens
