Updates regarding 2020-21 sports seasons will be posted here once they are available. Below is the most recent communication dated January 2021.
The Oregon State Athletic Association (OSAA) updated and released a plan for high school athletics & activities for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. With COVID-19 presenting many challenges Bend-La Pine Schools remain committed to providing access and opportunity for all student athletes in middle school sports. While our middle schools continue in distance learning we have been discussing changes to the athletic calendars moving forward in the 2020-21 academic year.
BLP middle school seasons largely follow our high school seasons, but athletic directors have made a few adjustments to the middle school timelines and offerings. With the OSAA adjusting all seasons into shortened time frames at various times of the year our regular middle school athletic seasons have adjusted as well. We understand there will be challenges along the way and with moving the seasons we are hoping to provide access for our students to their desired programs.
With the approval of our superintendent's team, school board, principals and athletic directors Bend-La Pine middle schools will follow the below calendar for the 2020-21 academic/athletics year.
Middle School season 2: February 22 - April 2
Middle School season 3: April 5 - May 7
Middle School season 4: May 10 - June 11
The Bend-La Pine Middle School Athletic Directors have met a number of times regarding what the 2021 middle school track and field programs will look like this year. With guidance from the Bend-La Pine District Office and guidelines given to us by the State of Oregon, below is what the 2021 middle school track and field will look like.

Students will find a connection to athletic activities in which they can participate and find enjoyment during their middle school years. We encourage parents to actively support their children in both their academic and athletic pursuits.
The following steps must be completed before your athlete will be eligible to participate in practices and events for the 2020-21 school year.
1. Register online through FamilyID - Please complete this step FIRST so your athlete is on the roster. FamilyID is a secure, user-friendly online registration platform that allows parents to enter information once for multiple family members and athletic teams.
2. Make sure the main office has a current sports physical on file.
Sports physicals are required for all 6th grade students competing in Bend-La Pine Schools athletics. Please note that Bend Park & Recreation District (BPRD) may have different requirements. Students who continue to participate in extracurricular sports after 6th grade must complete a physical exam in grades 7, 9, and 11, or if this is their first time participating with a Bend-La Pine Schools team. All physicals must be completed prior to the first day of practice, but not before May 1st of the summer prior to the start of the current academic year.

We believe that athletic participation provides a unique opportunity to fulfill the personal, social and physical needs common to middle school youth. Participation in appropriate competitive athletics increases an individuals’ sense of personal worth, self-discipline, respect and fair play, which can carry over into daily problem solving through life.
Coaches, teachers and parents have a shared responsibility to help guide, nurture and support youth in developing the confidence, skills and attitudes that will enable them to make good choices on and off the playing fields.
Through dedication, effort and practice, our youth will develop athletic skills determination and attitudes that will contribute to personal success as well as team goals. Our goal is to develop lifelong learners who enjoy and participate in a variety of healthful activities.
Bend-La Pine Schools' middle schools compete with other middle schools in the Central Oregon areas. All Central Oregon middle schools use the guidelines outlined by the C.O. Middle School Standard Operating Procedures for Athletics. These procedures are available in the counseling office.
