Duncan Quarterback Jaxon Gregston hands the ball off in a scrimmage last season at Cache. OSSAA will be discussing fall plans in a special meeting held in Oklahoma City about fall activities.

While summer training is going on around the state and some schools looking to plan for the next school year, the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association will have a special meeting June 25 to discuss fall sports.

It will be the first in person meeting since the COVID-19 pandemic hit and it will be held in Oklahoma City at the SAMIS Education Center.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and will have four association business action items including discussing the potential impact of COVID-19 on the upcoming fall activities.

A handout with discussion points will be provided to OSSAA Board members but was not available as of press time.

The second agenda item is a discussion to vote to approve, not approve or table an amendment to Board Policy LIV.

The Board Policy LIV in the OSSAA rules revolves around public health concerns and interruption of OSSAA events.

The policy currently reads that it is the decision of each local health authority in Oklahoma or each local Board of Education/Governing Board as to whether or not to close a school due to an influenza outbreak.

Paperwork was not available as of press time as to the amendment or anything else to be discussed during this agenda item.

Final agenda items to be discussed during the meeting is to approve or not approve an agreement with the Oklahoma City Tennis Center and a report on the Fall/Spring Baseball committee.

That committee was introduced in the last regular meeting and started to choose members for the committee and will have an update during the final portion of the special meeting.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. June 25 and a video link can be found on the OSSAA’s YouTube page and will be available for the public to watch the discussion live as it is happening.
