DESCRIPTION

OSAA does not permit teams to schedule ad hoc scrimmages or "friendly" games against other teams. Instead, they allow each team to participate in one "Jamboree", that consists of no more than two games of 30 minutes each. We use these short games as a small warm up for the season. This is also an opportunity for us to see a handful of JV1 players compete for a short period of time at the Varsity level. And it is also an opportunity for use to see a few JV2 players compete at the JV1 level.

Having players participate in the Jamboree is something we take very seriously. Coaching to win these 30-minute scrimmages is not something we take very seriously. We are more interested in measuring all of the on-the-field and off-the-field attributes that we evaluate at tryouts, during Jamboree games.

This year, as in prior years, there will be four teams participating in the Jamboree. Since each team is only allowed to play two games, Lake Oswego HS will not play against Lakeridge HS, and Oregon City HS will not play against Clackamas HS. This is a convenient format, as these pairs of teams are in the same leagues, and don't prefer to play each other in a pre-season Jamboree format.

All games are played at LOHS and Lakeridge HS. It has yet to be determined where the boys teams will play, and where the girls teams will play. Schedules will be available later in the summer.
