It was a proud moment for all as the Peel winners were recognized for their participation in the OSCA logo design contest and their excellence in the field of cricket.

Despite the limitations of Covid on schools and sports, OSCA has been actively providing cricket programs during the past year to children and youth as well as capacity building initiatives in schools through the generous support from OSCA’s founding partner Canadian Tire Corporation and the Federal Government’s Healthy Communities Initiative. These students were able to engage with their peers to develop skills that will stay with them for a lifetime.
