Watch High School Varsity Games Online, Not On-Site

On-site spectators currently not allowed due to state restrictions • District will livestream varsity games to provide online spectator access 

Friends, families and fans can cheer on 4J high school sports teams safely online now that they’ve returned to the field of competition.

High school varsity games will be livestreamed to provide virtual access, as spectators are not allowed on-site at high school games at this time due to state COVID restrictions.

Varsity Game Livestreams

Games played on 4J home fields and gym floors will be livestreamed for free. Eugene School District 4J has acquired video equipment and established web services to make this possible without a fee for spectators.

Away games will be livestreamed by the host site. The Bethel and Springfield school districts are using the NFHS Network platform for livestreaming of games. An NFHS subscription is required to view these games.

Spectators Not Allowed On-Site 

Schools must implement extensive health and safety measures in order to participate in school sports during the pandemic, with extra requirements while Lane County remains designated in Extreme or High Risk category.

On-site spectators currently are not allowed in the stands, on the sidelines, or along the fenceline. State requirements prohibit standing outside the fence around athletic fields. Families who come to games must remain in their cars in the parking lot. School staff and Eugene police will be present for safety and security, as is routine for athletic events under non-pandemic circumstances.

League officials are expected to stop contests if they see fans congregating at a fenceline or other violations occurring, and may terminate the contest from continuing.

The district hopes not to see any high school team have a contest canceled by game officials due to adults not complying with the state health and safety requirements.

Traditional fall sports—football, soccer, volleyball and cross country—started their abbreviated seasons on Feb. 22, and the first games started Monday, March. 1. Spring sports are tentatively scheduled to start in April and winter sports in May.

The district will communicate any changes to the spectator policy if restrictions loosen or change.
