A message for Raider Nation from Athletic Director Mark Henderson
With the announcement this week of the school closure for the remainder of this school year, this also means that our spring sports season has been canceled. We are all devastated by this news but in order to keep everyone safe and healthy, it is a necessary action. Although we will miss seeing our Raider student-athletes compete this spring, we look forward to next fall and the chance to get back out there and represent Crescent Valley.
To the class of 2020: Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication to Raider Athletics, it will pay off for you in your future endeavors and we wish you the absolute best!!
Families wishing to arrange for a refund for the spring pay-to-play fee please contact Mrs. Spreadbury at email@example.com.

“Today’s heart-wrenching decision is difficult for all members of the OSAA family,” said Peter Weber, OSAA Executive Director. “We empathize with students and school communities, especially our graduating seniors, but recognize that these cancellations will allow our collective focus to remain where it’s most needed at this time – on the health and safety of all Oregonians.”
“We had maintained hope for an abbreviated Spring season to help bring a sense of normalcy to these uncertain times,” continued Weber. “Now more than ever we need to apply the lessons learned through participation in education-based activities – teamwork, sacrifice, resilience – and play our role in adhering to the public health guidelines. We all look forward to the day when we play again.”
Current OSAA policies prohibiting the use of school facilities and coaches from organizing or directing workouts and practices remain in effect until further notice. The OSAA Executive Board will meet in the coming weeks to discuss policies for summer activities, along with academic eligibility concerns for Fall 2020 that have been expressed by member schools and families. The OSAA and our member schools are currently awaiting guidance from ODE on credit attainment for 9th-11th grade students through the state’s Distance Learning for All initiative.
