Eugene 4J Athletes to Resume Sports Starting in Late-January

Elizabeth Gabriel


Athletics will resume for Eugene 4J school district students on Jan. 25. Director of High School Education Andy Dey said some sports, such as football, basketball, dance, cheer, and wrestling will not have competitions.  

“I’m hoping people understand that this is just a training and conditioning season prior to the start of what would normally be the fall season, with football on Feb. 8, and all other fall sports on Feb. 22,” said Dey.

Dey said costs to athletics have decreased during the pandemic. There is a one-time fee for athletes participating in sports that have competitions. Students whose sports will not have competitions will not pay a fee.
