December 7, 2018 (Smiths Falls, ON) -  The Upper Canada District School Board is excited to announce that Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) has won the bid to host the 2021 OFSAA Boys AA Basketball Championship.

“We are very excited to be hosting this event,” said Todd Spencer, teacher at SFDCI and convener of the event. “We pride ourselves in our basketball program. We call ourselves a basketball family, and we are proud to welcome teams from across the province to share in that.”

SFDCI coaching staff and RedHawks athletes in wrestling, basketball, track & field, rugby and girls’ hockey have competed in multiple OFSAA Championships over the past 10 years, and Spencer is confident that the entire RedHawks Family will commit to hosting a high-level event.

Coincidentally, SFCDI’s hosting of this tournament will coincide with the 10th anniversary of their gold OFSAA basketball win in North Bay in 2011.

The key to putting on an event such as OFSAA requires a significant amount of teamwork and Spencer emphasized that he couldn’t be surrounded by a better group of colleagues. “We have a strong athletics team here at SFDCI, one that works collaboratively and cohesively and has a passion for and experience with high level athletics. Having this is crucial to running a meaningful event of this caliber. You just can’t do it without a lot of teamwork.”

This OFSAA Championship will draw 18 teams from around the province and their supporters, making this an opportunity for the school to further strengthen its community connections.

“We have a great community support network here in Smiths Falls. We will be assembling our respective organizing committees soon and begin reaching out to restaurants, hotels and others in the business community to see how we can work together,” says the school’s Principal Marsha McNair. “Our focus is to offer a high level, memorable and meaningful experience for all the athletes involved and the families that travel with them.
