OHSLA 2020-2021 Season Announcement

August 13th, 2020 

The following is a message to the OHSLA Community from Commissioner Paul Schlesinger:

"As you may have read, the OSAA released a statement last Wednesday afternoon pertaining to High School Athletics/ Sports for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.  If you did not see the announcement, it can be found on here and there are also FAQs on the OSAA Coronavirus page.

At this point the OHSLA plans to mirror the OSAA's timeline for Spring Sports for the High School Programs with a practice start date of April 19th 2021.  Games start date of May 3rd 2021 and culmination of the Spring Season the last week of June 2021.  The Officers and the Board of the OHSLA, at this time, are working together to plan within the confines of this timeline a manageable Lacrosse Season to maximize this upcoming season for the benefit of our Student Athletes.  Also keeping in mind the safety for all involved with Oregon Lacrosse in light of the continued COVID-19 Pandemic that we are all living with.  Hopefully this plan will provide the best situation for our Student Athletes, Coaches, Officials, and the OHSLA Fan Base for a positive Spring 2021 OHSLA Lacrosse Season. 

The OHSLA is taking all factors into consideration (the timeframe, Coaches and Officials availability, Field usage, and other Spring Sports) in order to create a season for our Student Athletes. As I stated the Officers and the Board of the OHSLA will provide further information pertaining to the 2021 Spring Lacrosse Season as it becomes available; as things are constantly in flux it's difficult to provide any concrete plans at this point. Please be assured that the OHSLA is planning this upcoming Spring Season as best we can at this moment and moving forward. The OHSLA will continue to update our Community as these Plans solidify.

Thank you for your understanding of this fluid situation.

Paul Schlesinger
Commissioner OHSLA"
