What Is The OSA
The OSA is a non-profit organization and is one of eight charters incorporated under the Canadian Shuffleboard Congress.
The OSA charter comprises three main areas in Southern Ontario: Kitchener / Milton / Niagara Region.
Each area organizes its tournaments, usually monthly, and all tournaments are open to anyone who wishes to play.

Hosting this event each year is done rotationally from province to province.
On November 27, 1964, twenty-two dedicated shuffleboard players from across Canada elected an official executive body that confirmed the status of the Canadian Shuffleboard Congress and the Constitution, Rules, and Regulations.
A resolution was passed, "Each Province is to have Regional areas with each area composed of their own elected executives.
The elected executives, in turn, will choose a member(s) to represent their group to the Provincial Association.
The Provincial Association would have representation in the Canadian Shuffleboard Congress."
