Tigers News · LATEST OHSAA UPDATE – April 8


Information Relative to Spring Sports & Beyond

First, we continue to stay in close contact with the state’s leadership relative to stay-at-home orders. Additionally, we continue to collaborate with the OASSA to make certain we have each other’s support as it relates to a return to school and activities.A few important updates/reminders:
  • If schools are closed for the remainder of the school year, spring sports will be cancelled in Ohio
  • The mandatory No-Contact period remains in place until at least May 1.  No practices or group workouts may occur through this date.
  • No-contact does not mean ‘electronic’ communication is not permitted.  In fact, we encourage coaches to maintain correspondence, provide workouts, etc. to INDIVIDUALS.
  • The dates below for a spring season/tournaments are tentative.  We are continuing with the Governor’s optimistic direction that schools will re-open on May 4.  We will adjust accordingly. However optimistic this may be, we must PLAN for the return even if that ends up changing.
  • With a current return on May 4, the following schedule has been adopted for spring sports. Specific information relative to Sectional and District Tournaments, playing dates, seeding procedures, game sites, will all be provided in communications from the respective six District Athletic Boards.
  • If for any reason specific sites are shut down due to governor’s orders, ALL sites will be shut down and a tournament will not be held.
