Revised OHSLA 2021 Schedule

January 16th, 2021 

In keeping with shifts in the OSAA seasons, the OHSLA Board has moved the upcoming 2020-2021 lacrosse season schedule forward 2weeks, beginning April 5th and ending May 22nd syncing lacrosse with the other spring sports in OSAA 2021 Season #3.  For reference, the revised 2020-21 OSAA Calendar can be found here. This effectively removed another 2 weeks from an alreaady abbreviated schedule which has forced the OHSLA board to again change the number of games and the playoffs.

The last few months have required a lot of changes for everyone and it appears the next few months will be no different.  The OHLSA is committed to providing a continued lacrosse experience in this challenging environment within the rules set by the state of Oregon and the OSAA.  Players and parents have to look further than NCAA to see that the ability for players to stay on the field requires a different committment than in the past.  Hopefully the vaccine will be available to all soon.  In the meantime everyone can be vigilant and take the steps they need to remain healthy and on the field.
