    Two other tidbits from my OFSAA contact;

    1. There is a motion on the table for the April AGM to reclassify schools in three levels instead of the current four. The rationale is declining school populations and the need to cut costs.

    2. There won't be a FIBA motion this year. The SAC is still studying the issue. Costs and training of student volunteers are the big issues (but not the only ones). The issue will eventually be submitted for discussion and possibly a vote again.

    Some follow up info.

    The motion to reduce OFSAA from four classifications to three is almost certainly going to pass. Which means next season would be the last season with four classifications (so 2014 AAAA OFSAA in Mississauga is safe). However, it will be a floating number each year. In other words, the number for each classification (A, AA, and AAA) will be set each year so that approximately 1/3 of all participating schools in Ontario fall under each of the three classifications, rather than the current system where it's a fixed number for each of the four.
