OSAA: Football, cheer on hold while other sports to start three weeks late

Football and cheerleading are big question marks and other fall sports’ season kick-offs are being delayed until at least Sept. 23, Oregon Schools Activities Association Executive Board decided last week.

All fall sports, including football, are being allowed to start practice Aug. 17, to give schools time to acclimate to changes they’ll need to make in reopening this fall, the OSAA said.

Daily doubles will not be allowed in any sport, said Sweet Home High School Athletic Director Nate Tyler, though any summer workouts currently underway are allowed to proceed as they have been.
