OSAA Moves Fall High School Sports to Spring

Eugene 4J School District

The Oregon School Activities Association shifted its traditional fall high school sports season contests to begin in March under a new 2020-2021 school activities calendar approved by the association’s executive board on Wednesday.

The board says they took the action following last week’s release of school reopening health metrics by the Governor’s office and the Oregon Health Authority that has nearly all OSAA member high schools starting their school year online.

Traditional winter activities (basketball, swimming, wresting, dance/drill, and cheerleading) will take place in January and February, followed by fall activities (football, volleyball, cross-country, and soccer)  in March and April, with spring activities (track and field, baseball, softball, tennis, and golf) occurring in May and June. Each season will feature an equitable 7-week regular season, with adjusted contest limitations, followed by an OSAA Culminating Week.

Policies restricting out-of-season coaching have been removed. This allows member school students and coaches, at the discretion of the local school district, to participate in any OSAA-sanctioned activity permitted by directives from the Governor’s office, OHA and the Oregon Department of Education. This participation may include conditioning, practices and interscholastic competitions in those permitted activities, provided schools adhere to OSAA policies.
