Interschool Activities

Interschool sports are defined as school-sponsored, competitive programs which involve competitions against outside teams.

When introducing a sport which is not described in the Ontario Physical Activity Safety Standards in Education, refer to the safety standards of the sport it most resembles. Approval from the appropriate school board official must be received if a coach wishes to include sports that are not in the Ontario Physical Activity Safety Standards in Education and do not resemble a sport in the Ontario Physical Activity Safety Standards in Education. Once the sport has been approved by a school board official, the inherent risks of the sport must be identified and minimized.
