Triangle Lake Athletics 2020-21 Update:

The Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) Executive Board has revised the Association’s calendar to start activities in February. Board members made it clear during the meeting that the OSAA and its member schools are bound by the rules, regulations, and guidance set forth by the Governor’s Office and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).

In the revised calendar adopted 12/7/20, Fall sports (Cross Country, Soccer, Volleyball, Football) are moved to Season 2 and will begin in February with multiple activities permitted by state guidance.  This allows time for case counts to decrease in the new year and for counties to subsequently move out of the Extreme Risk category.

Season 3 features the traditional Spring activities (Baseball, Softball, Golf, Tennis and Track & Field), all of which are permitted by state guidance as outdoor activities.  These will begin April 5 and extend into the third week in May.

The sports calendar wraps up with Season 4 and traditional winter sports (Swimming, Basketball and Wrestling) beginning in mid-May and extending into late June.

The Executive Board also voted to extend Season 1 (current season) through February 21, 2021 to allow training, workouts and even competitions to occur in those areas of the state that are allowed per the Governor’s Office, OHA guidance, and local school district policy.

For TLCS, this means that the two programs currently training will continue to meet.  High school football players and girls basketball are currently participating in outside athletic training, following safety guidelines.
