WILSONVILLE, Ore--- On Wednesday, The OSAA canceled all Spring activities and state championships for the 2020 season. The announcement came after Governor Kate Brown's school closure extension.
Spring sports were already suspended until April 28th, which matched the Oregon school closure. The OSAA had already said that if Governor Brown was to close schools for the year, the OSAA would align with that decision and cancel remaining activities.
“Today’s heart wrenching decision is difficult for all members of the OSAA family,” said OSAA Executive Director Peter Weber. “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 policies that restrict the use of school facilities and coaches from directing workouts will remain in effect until further notice.
The OSAA Executive Board is expected to meet in the coming weeks to discuss policies for summer activities. That meeting will also include concerns for Fall 2020 eligibility.
