COOS BAY — Mirroring the Oregon School Activities Association schedule, the Boys & Girls Club of Southwestern Oregon has postponed its sports seasons until 2021.

But the club is planning upcoming volleyball and basketball skills camps.

As for the delayed sports seasons, Boys & Girls Club sports director Garrett Stout said that many school and community facilities are not available for teams was a large factor in the decision.

“We are hopeful that come December we will be able to have teams practice in local facilities,” Stout said.

The current plan is for the volleyball season to run from Jan. 16-Feb. 20, the basketball season to run from March 13-April 24 and the track and field season to run from May 8-June 12.

For more information on the sports schedule, contact Stout by phone at 541-267-6573 or email at
