News Release
Canby High School Football to Play OSAA 5A Division for 2020-2021 Seasons - 12/03/19

Canby High School Football will play in the 5A division of OSAA football for the next two seasons, beginning in 2020. OSAA invited Canby High School Football to play in the 5A division after the team’s winning record was under 22% for the past two years.

While Canby High School is certainly excited and energized by the improved performance of the football team during the 2019-20 season, the district decided that this opportunity will allow the program to continue to grow. Participation has declined over the past few years; yet the new energy the program has is now generating increased interest and community support. The program expects the move to 5A will continue that momentum.

The reclassification to 5A will only affect football. OSAA will release a schedule of opponents in February. It is possible Canby High School will play 6A teams during non-conference games. There may be additional travel involved and OSAA is taking this into consideration.

The Canby High School Football community, athletic department, and district consulted with coaches, players, and the community to reach this decision. The overall feedback supported the move to 5A for the next two years. The main concerns involved travel and college recruitment. Some of the most highly-recruited players in Oregon play below the 6A level. An OSAA associate director helped answer questions about these concerns during the public meeting.

CHS Head Football Coach Jimmy Joyce has been working to rebuild the program, not only at CHS, but also within the community. Coach Joyce supports this move and thinks it will benefit the players and the community.

The move to 5A will remain in effect for the next two seasons. Then, OSAA will revisit the team’s classification.
