    I have fielded a few calls and emails about the number of seeds per association. Please understand that this is predetermined by OFSAA, not me. As a convenor, I am following the OFSAA guidelines...not making them up.

    According the OFSAA playing regulations the following associations will receive the following seeds

    COSSA 1
    CISAA 1
    CWOSSA 1
    EOSSAA 1
    GBSSA 1
    GHAC 1
    LOSSA 1
    NCSSAA 1
    NEOAA 0
    NOSSA 1
    NWOSSAA 0
    ROPSSAA 1
    SOSSA 1
    SWOSSAA 1 (plus 1 as host)
    TDCAA 1
    TDSSAA 2
    WOSSAA1
    YRAA 1

    Best of luck to all teams.

    how does the TDSSAA have 2 spots? They have roughly 90,000 students yet ROPSSAA is almost 130,000 students and only have 1 representative? Tell OFSAA, they missed the bucket on that one

    Where are you getting these numbers? Dufferin-Peel has about 32,000 high school students and Peel has about 45,000 high school students. Even accounting for the handful of private schools that is less than TDSSAA (which had an extra berth for historic reasons when three OFSAA regions were merged into one) and well under 130,000.

    That's about 60 high school students for every 1000 people (200-300 homes). That seems about right to me; based on my experiences living here.

    An anticipated drop in the number of schools as well as a desire to save money by cutting the number of championships.
