    Organized by James L. Hughes, the Toronto Public School Athletic Association was formed in 1901 while the Secondary School Athletic Association formed in 1907. These associations regulated after school sports and depended on volunteers and equipment supplied by the Board. While some individual teachers, particularly at the high school level, organized practices and inter-school competitions as early as 1877, there was no formal sports program in the school curriculum.
