OSAA Cancels All Spring Activities & State Championships

1:42 AM · Apr 9, 2020

Governor Kate Brown’s announcement earlier today that Oregon schools will be closed to in-person learning for the remainder of the school year, the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) has cancelled all remaining Spring activities and state championships. This affects baseball, softball, golf, track & field, tennis and lacrosse. It also affects band, orchestra, choir, solo music and speech activities. “Today’s heart wrenching decision is difficult for all members of the OSAA family,” said Peter Weber, OSAA Executive Director. “We empathize with students and school communities, especially our graduating seniors, but recognize that these cancellations will allow our collective focus to remain where it’s most needed at this time - on the health and safety of all Oregonians.” Current OSAA policies prohibiting the use of school facilities and coaches from organizing or directing workouts and practices remain in effect until further notice. The OSAA Executive Board will meet in the coming weeks to discuss policies for summer activities, along with academic eligibility concerns for Fall 2020 that have been expressed by member schools and families. The OSAA and member schools are currently awaiting guidance from ODE on credit attainment for 9th-11th grade students through the state’s Distance Learning for All initiative.
