The OSAA Handbook can be revised during the year by the Executive Board or Delegate Assembly. Please contact the OSAA office if you have specific questions regarding any portion of the OSAA Handbook.
Throughout the long history of the OSAA one statement has remained true: the schools control the rules. This article by Mike Wallmark, former Associate Executive Director, details where OSAA rules came from, how OSAA rules can be changed by member schools, how OSAA rules are enforced, exceptions to OSAA eligibility rules and the appeals process for denials of hardship requests.
The web version is a web page of the OSAA Handbook with a table of contents and direct links to information regarding articles, rules, board policies, participation limitations, sport seasons, and official fees. You can search the entire handbook with your browser's built-in search feature.Web Version
