All Baseball, varsity baseball · OSAA extending summer period and new sports calendar for 2020-2021 school year


The OSAA has decided that there will be no sports or activities this
fall with the exception of dance and cheer.
I will provide a link with their calendar but the short version is
that winter sports start practice December 28 and games start January
11. Fall sports,yes I said fall sports, would then start practice
February 22 with games beginningMarch 16. Spring sports would start
practice April 19 with games starting May 3 and going until June 20.
Playoff week for varsity only would be June 21 – 27.

I applaud the OSAA for getting us something we can plan for that gives
everyone a shot at playing their sports.

Obviously this brings about several questions.

One thing that becomes evident is that we will not be able to do the
Florida trip as planned in March. That is outside of our sports season
and we can only play 18 games total. We have 18 league games already.
Money raised by kids so far, will continue to be in their accounts for
use when they are able to do a trip in the future. Seniors- we will
try to do something special this next season somehow in place of the
trip.

A plus that this schedule provides is time now until winter sports
start. We are making plans currently collaborating with other LHS
athletic programs to set up a weekly schedule that would allow us to
have workouts for kids that would not conflict with each other. An
athlete could conceivably be practicing three different sports at the
same time without having any conflicts in his schedule. That would
mean just one workout a day – not three different workouts a day.

I am in the process of trying to get permission to have games during
this period as well. More to come on that later.

For now, workouts will continue Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 9:15.
