The Oregon Schools Activities Association (OSAA) announced their updated plans this week for interscholastic athletics and activities for the 2020-21 school year. This latest change follows the newly revised state benchmarks for in-person classes and pushes the start of sports later in the year with three condensed seasons.
The first sports season will run from December 28 through February 28 including traditional winter sports (basketball, swimming, alpine, and Nordic skiing) finishing with an OSAA culminating week March 1-6, 2021. The second sports season will run from February 22 through April 25 and include fall sports (cross country, soccer, and volleyball), concluding with an OSAA culminating week April 26-May 1, 2021. The third and final season will be comprised of spring sports (golf, lacrosse, tennis, track and field) from April 19 through June 20, finishing with an OSAA culminating week June 21-26. Each season will include a seven-week condensed competition format with adjusted contest limitations and culminating week events. Competition schedules for each sport reflecting the adjustment in the OSAA calendar seasons will be posted in the coming weeks as they become available.
