It is with great pleasure that CIS Ontario announces the appointment of Tim White as the new Director of the CISAA (Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association) at CIS Ontario, effective as of September 1, 2020.
Tim comes to us from a 30+ year career with Trinity College School, beginning in 1988 as TCS’ first full-time athletic therapist and culminating in his current position of Athletic Director, which he has held since 1992.
In addition to his many years of valuable service to TCS, Tim has been an integral part of the CISAA since its beginnings. His past positions with the association include; Chair, Vice-Chair, Chair of the Transfer Committee, and Chair of the CISAA Scheduling Committee. Tim has also served as convenor of multiple leagues over the years.
Tim and his wife Nancy have been married for 28 years and have four children; Madison, Graham, Cameron and Jillian, and one 4 year old granddaughter, Mariah. They share their 32 acre property with four horses and two golden retrievers and love spending time outdoors.
I truly enjoy working in athletics/sport. I have spent my career working to make sure that programs are fair and of value to all involved. The ethics of sport is central to all decisions I am involved in. Fairplay, sportsmanship, integrity, respect, and choices of character and good conduct are central... — Tim White
Tim’s vast experience in athletics, as well as his leadership skills and strategic experience will be an immense asset to CIS Ontario and CISAA. We look forward to working with him to grow and strengthen our program of 140 leagues and 1,300 teams.
As we embark on this new chapter of the CISAA we must express how fortunate we have been to have benefited from the leadership of Rob Reiner, as CISAA Coordinator, over his 5 year tenure. Rob’s dedication to independent school sport, and commitment to student athletic growth and achievement has made an impact on each student, from novice to expert. In addition, he has provided Athletic Directors with thoughtful and skilled guidance, as well as clear and reliable program direction. Rob will be greatly missed by the CISAA Athletic Directors and his colleagues at CIS Ontario.
As we benefit from Rob and Tim’s past collaborations on various CISAA committees, their friendship and collegiality, we know that the passing of the CISAA torch will be a smooth one. Please join us in congratulating Tim on his new position, as well as wishing Rob all the best in his future adventures in retirement.
