Education Program

The Windsor Spitfires recognize the important role education plays in the lives of our players. Each is strongly encouraged to attend post-secondary school once they finish high school. Every OHL player receives a scholarship upon signing a contract. A player who leaves the OHL and does not sign pro contract with the American Hockey League or the National Hockey League has an eighteen month period to access their scholarship. Many of our alumni are currently taking advantage of that opportunity while attending universities and colleges across the country.

The Windsor Spitfires have two Academic Advisors who provide guidance to our players with their studies: Dennis Gignac at St. Anne’s High School and John Laporte, who also works cooperatively with St. Clair College and the University of Windsor.

Contact Mr. Gignac at (519) 727-8908 or Mr. Laporte at (519) 567-2487.
