AISA: Sabers will not participate.
It is disappointing to announce that, due to safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sabers will not participate in any 2020-21 AISA events. All five of the AISA schools have agreed to cancel the 2020 fall events. The 2020 winter and spring events might be held by the other four schools, but SOIS will not compete. This will be tough news for our Sabers athletes and coaches.
WJAA: fall season to be limited.
The 2020 fall season for WJAA sports will be limited. All midseason festivals and end-of-season tournaments - middle school and high school - have been cancelled. This affects HS volleyball and cross country, and MS volleyball and baseball. Tournaments may be replaced with smaller one-day events including only nearby Kansai schools (CA, KCS, KIUA, OYIS, MBIS, SOLICS, SOIS). Teams from further away (Nagoya, Yokohama, Hokkaido, Fukuoka, Iwakuni, Sasebo) will not travel to Kansai. As of now, we plan to
hold usual Saturday “friendly” games and matches among the Kansai teams, with new safety precautions planned. This might change depending on the coronavirus situation. More information will be announced in August.
