OSSAA Board votes down proposal; All activities allowed to resume June 1
The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association Board of Directors held a special meeting to hear a threephase plan to slowly bring back school-related extracurricular activities in the state last Friday. On May 4, the OSSAA extended their cancellation of all activities until at least June 1.
With that date approaching, and restrictions across Oklahoma continuing to loosen, the OSSAA was considering a plan to gradually open facilities back up in order to allow summer activities. However, the board voted not to implement that plan by a count of 7-6, opting instead, to conduct summer activities in accordance to the traditional set of rules and policies.
To be clear, the OSSAA is placing no restrictions on activities that can start as soon as June 1, outside of the ones that they must abide by every summer such as the mandatory dead period that ranges from late June until after the Fourth of July. Social distancing practices such as keeping a six-foot range between athletes and sanitizing equipment and hands will not be mandatory through the OSSAA, although state and local restrictions still apply.
