OWEN SOUND DISTRICT SECONDARY SCHOOL EXTRA CURRICULAR ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES 2018-2019

It is important to participate in school life and get involved.  These experiences will carry with you for life; you develop friendships, participate in healthy lifestyles and gain valuable knowledge for future endeavors.  You may also find employment opportunities and scholarships based on the variety of activities you participate in.  Most important, it is FUN!  Care about your school culture and participate.

Pay your student fees to participate in school activities.  Student fees this year are $50.00.  This will also include a yearbook and an OSDSS canvas bag, while supplies last.  If these fees cannot be paid, please see administration or guidance.  We want you to participate and have fun.

Listen to announcements to see when when clubs and teams are starting up.  Ask the front office or guidance where to locate teachers involved with the activity you are interested in.  Teachers and costs may vary from year to year.  Find out more information about joining.  Listen to announcements and get involved.  It's FUN!
