With no youth sports guidance from the California Department of Public Health, CIF puts Season 1 Fall start dates “on hold” until further notice.
The California Interscholastic Federation announced that all fall practice and competition start dates are on hold until the state health officers present official COVID-19 guidance.
The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) does not expect the CDPH will issue any guidance allowing for schools to return to full practice and competition until after January 1, 2021, at the earliest.
Thus, all full practice and competition start dates are officially on hold until updated guidance is issued.
Therefore, to provide the 10 CIF Sections, our 1,605 member schools, and more than 800,000 student-athletes the best opportunity to compete in Season 1 or Fall Sports, once allowed by the CDPH and local county offices of public health, the CIF State Office is removing all Regional and State Championship events from the Season 1 Fall Sports calendar.
By canceling Regional and State Championship events, more student-athletes will have the opportunity to participate in a longer season, rather than a truncated season with Regional and State post-season play for a limited number of schools.
The CIF also announced that boys volleyball is moving from the winter to spring (Season 1 to Season 2) because the boys season was canceled in the last school year. The boys traditionally play volleyball in the spring so to avoid the loss of a second full season, an updated Season 2 calendar to include boys volleyball will be posted in January.
