July 31, 2021 – The Ontario Intercollegiate Women’s Fastpitch Association (OIWFA) announces the 2021 regular season fall schedule. Following the cancellation of the 2020 season due to COVID-19, the OIWFA is pleased to announce a return to the diamond this fall.
In planning for the 2021 fall season, the OIWFA has prioritized the health and safety of student-athletes, coaches, trainers and all league participants to create a modified league schedule which will see a reduction in number of games played together with elimination of overnight travel. All regular season games will be played within each team’s respective East or West division.
All competition will adhere to public health restrictions and will follow Return to Play protocols mandated by the Provincial Sport Organization.
“We are thrilled to be returning to OIWFA competition this fall,” said OIWFA President Steph Manson. “Despite a season off, our student-athletes have remained invested and dedicated and we are excited to have them safely back on the field and, as well, to welcome new student-athletes to the OIWFA.”
The complete 2021 OIWFA regular season schedule can be found under the Schedule tab.
“It is a particularly notable season to be returning to the field” Manson added, “as 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the OIWFA since its establishment in 2001, which we look forward to recognizing through the coming months and fall season.”
The OIWFA also continues to develop a modified structure for the 2021 OIWFA Provincial Championships which will be announced in the coming weeks along with the location.
