Summit High School
12/8/20 Update from Summit High School Athletics/Activities:
Recently, the Oregon School Activities Association updated member schools providing direction and clarification for school athletics moving forward in the 2020-21 school year. We want to provide an update in the development of athletics in our state and district.
Local/Regional Scheduling and Leagues/Special Districts
The OSAA Executive Board is directing schools to prioritize local/regional play when scheduling contests for the 2020-21 school year. Schools will not be required to participate in assigned leagues/special districts for the 2020-21 school year. While current league/special district alignments may continue to work for some, many schools are forecasting significant travel and transportation issues that will impact current league structures.Schools within the 6A Mountain Valley Conference have determined that our schedules for continued league play in 2020-21 will prove problematic for most sports and we will focus the bulk of our schedules within our region.This will require coordination with schools in Central Oregon and likely include more cross-classification competitions and events in Central Oregon.Scheduling with schools within our region will begin soon.
Per the OHA’s Statewide Reopening Guidance – K-12 School Sports, Limited Return to Play, full-contact sports continue to be prohibited at this time. Full-contact sports include wrestling, basketball, football, dance/drill (contact) and cheerleading (contact). Bend-La Pine Schools will continue to commit to training and conditioning in these sports during season 1 but competitions or contact between participants of any kind remains prohibited. These restrictions cannot be waived by the OSAA Executive Board, OSAA staff, or Bend-La Pine Schools. OSAA staff is in regular communication with the Governor’s Office and OHA regarding a timeline for possible reconsideration of these policies but thus far they have received no indication of any pending reconsideration.We remain optimistic to changes occurring prior to season 2.
Comprehensive Distance Learning and Indoor Competitions
OHA K-12 School Sports Limited Return to Play guidance continues to prohibit indoor competitions when a school is in CDL.Schools must be in a Hybrid or on-site instructional method in order to hold indoor competitions. These restrictions cannot be waived by the OSAA Executive Board, OSAA staff, or Bend-La Pine Schools.
Season 2, 3, and 4 Dates
Fall sports (OSAA season 2) will begin tryouts February 22nd (Football will begin tryouts February 8th)
Spring sports (OSAA season 3) will begin tryouts April 5th
Winter sports (OSAA season 4) will begin tryouts May 10th
If and when the OSAA Executive Board makes decisions that could alter our direction for these upcoming seasons, communication will be made from our athletic department to you.
Academics and Eligibility
Athletes will continue to be bound by individual academic eligibility rules this school year.As we approach upcoming competition seasons below are a few reminders:
As families register for sports, part of our clearing for competition process checks on these minimum requirements.These requirements cross all forms of instruction be it within our current CDL, Bend-La Pine online, or associate member format.The only exception to this is home schooled student eligibility requirements.There are many other eligibility requirements as well and if you have questions about specifics concerning your individual eligibility please do not hesitate to contact me as each situation is unique.
We hope this update provides a bit of clarification on our direction in the current season. With many decisions still being considered for upcoming seasons we will do our best to keep you up to date with pertinent information.Thank you for sharing your athlete with us and if you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Email is the best form of communication, the athletics office is not open at this time.
Questions please contact the athletics office email: [email protected]
Students will find a connection to athletic activities in which they can participate and find enjoyment during their high school careers. We encourage parents to actively support their children in both their academic and athletic pursuits.

Students who participate in extracurricular sports must complete a physical exam in grades 9, and 11 or if this is their first time participating with a Bend-La Pine Schools team. All physicals need to be completed prior to the sports season and not before May 1 of the summer before the current academic year.
Please be sure to print out the OSAA School Sports Pre-Participation Examination form:
Take it to your child's sports physical appointment. When you have completed the sports physical, please turn it in to the school.
As an advocate for your children, we hope that parents of athletes and non-athletes alike will also consider an annual Wellness Check – a complete medical examination and screen for common health issues – annually.
Wellness Check visits are vital to your child’s healthy growth and development. Physicians suggest adolescents should have regular wellness visits to make sure they are developing at the expected pace and continue to remain healthy.
During these visits, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your child’s growth, development, behavior and other health issues with the goal of preventing illness and promoting the best possible health for your student.
We encourage you to consider discussing the possibility of adding a Wellness Check to your next sports physical, with your physician.
Note: If you choose a Wellness Check in place of a physical, you must complete the physical form with your physician to be eligible for OSAA athletics. The form is available in your school’s athletics office and in the link above.
Any student who participates in school-sponsored athletics or activities must agree to abide by the School District Board Policies, Administrative Rules, Code Of Conduct, building rules and team participation/training regulations. All students who participate in athletics and extracurricular activities are expected to be positive role models for other students and members of the community at all times. This signed contract shall be in effect at all times during the contract period. “At all times" means 24 hours a day, every day of the week whether at school or away from school. The contract will be in effect from the beginning of the OSAA calendar (see OSAA website for each years start date) and conclude with the last day of high school.
Summit High School is a member of the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) and abides by all of its rules and policies.
