OHS Sports Streaming Announcement

Othello High School has entered into an agreement with NFHS to provide live streaming services for sports.

Home football games (all levels), JV and varsity volleyball, and all home girls soccer games will be available for live streaming.

The service requires a subscription ($10.99/month or $69.99/year). OHS athletics does receive some benefit from the subscription fees. Subscriptions include the ability to stream OHS Huskies away games if the host school is also an NFHS service subscriber. Those games will appear in the calendar on the streaming service website.

Middle School Sports Update

Fall sports (football, volleyball, girls soccer, and cross country) will have a modified 5 week season, starting on March 1st and running through April 2nd. Family ID registration for fall sports is now open. Please contact McFarland Middle School if you need assistance.

Spring sports will start after spring break on April 12th and run through the end of the school year, ending on May 30th. Baseball, softball, track, and boys soccer will have their regular 7 week season!

Unfortunately, the schedule approved by the league does not leave room for our traditional winter sports this school year (basketball, dance and wrestling). We are excited for them to return in 2021-22. These are deemed “high-risk” activities in Washington’s reopening plan. Phase 2 does not allow for competition for high-risk indoor sports, and the state has not yet defined what Phase 3 would allow. Click here for Family ID sports registration...
