Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association (OSSAA) will take the next step to prepare for the 2020-21 school year in regards to activities for high school sports.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 9. It comes after a lengthy special meeting hosted May 22 to discuss summer plans for preps for the 2020-2021 school year during which the OSSAA Board of Directors voted down their plan to resume activities for summer 2020.

While the OSSAA had a phase plan to bring back summer activities, most districts adopted a plan in Stephens County and those plans could be affected by decisions made in the upcoming meeting.

The first item on the agenda is to discuss a plan for fall activities which includes: football, volleyball, cross country and fast pitch softball that will affect Stephens County schools.

There is no other information about what the fall plan discussion will entail but the meeting will also include several other items that will help athletes and coaches better understand how to prepare.

OSSAA will discuss approving the amended calendar for activities for the 2020-21 school year and will also talk about a petition to address fall and spring baseball that was brought up.

Another item on the agenda which could affect Stephens County schools includes discussion of suspension of the Dead Period Policy for summer 2020.

Currently the OSSAA has the 2020 summertime dead week dates set June 27-July 5 but the board will discuss approving the cancellation of the 2020 dead week period to help prep students back into their activities.

The rest of the agenda will discuss matters of routine nature for the OSSAA. The 9 a.m. meeting will have a link for the public to watch available via the OSSAA’s website.
