Planning for 2018:
Dates: Friday May 11 - Saturday May 12.
A committee of teachers and parents is considering the possibility of moving the Championship back to May: Friday May 11 - Saturday May 12.
The major question is whether students - especially Grade 12 - in IB or AP courses may attend.
Also under consideration is the possibility of expanding to three days, whether Thursday through Saturday, or Friday through Sunday.
For more information, or to join the discussion, please email: email@example.com
The committee hopes to finalise plans for 2018 as soon as possible - before the end of this school year. The decision will be posted here.
Registrations are on going -- link and details just below.

No registrations can be accepted after April 3, 2017.
We suggest that teachers use the registration form (English French) to collect school and player / accompanying adult information so as to have all needed data ready for entry.
Payment for entry fees, transportation if selected, accommodation if selected, and parking if selected can be made online with PayPal, or you may send your cheque to our treasurer at the address given at the bottom of the validation page once the form has been submitted.
When you complete your school's registration, your school and players are added to the Entries page (http://ohscc.on.ca/entries.php). Check back often to see which other schools and players have registered.
After you have registered, the teacher / coach / or parent who registered the school can return to review the registration or add more players or adults for the school (http://ohscc.on.ca/return.php).
