Fall sports 2020: Important parent reminders

Posted On: Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Well, it looks like the Ohio High School Athletic Association along with the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department are moving forward cautiously—very cautiously—with plans for a junior high and high school athletic season this fall. While that decision is open to constant review and change, here is the tryout schedule for fall 2020 varsity, junior varsity, and junior high sports at Ottawa Hills Local Schools.

The district offers eight varsity, four junior varsity, and four junior high sports. While this document explains the tryout schedule for each, many teams this summer already have conducted open gyms and other conditioning activities.?? Other reminders for parents and athletes:

  • Completed physical forms as well as concussion and sudden cardiac arrest/Lindsay’s Law forms are all due in the district’s Athletic Office PRIOR to participation.
  • Team photos will be taken Monday, Aug. 10.
  • The content of this email also can be found on the Athletic Office website.
  • Follow all your favorite OH teams on Twitter at @GreenBearSports
