OREGON - The fall sports season will be shifted to spring 2021, seasons will be condensed, and out-of-season coaching restrictions will be waived, the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) said in a Wednesday, August 5 press release issued after the OSAA executive board meeting.

There will essentially be an optional season beginning August 31 and extending to December 27 where local districts, at their discretion, can participate in OSAA-sanctioned activities such as conditioning, practices, and interscholastic activities if all directives from the Oregon Health Authority, Oregon Department of Education, and Governor’s Office are followed. 

This is made possible by a vote by the OSAA board on Wednesday to waive normal restrictions on out-of-season coaching.
