On Dec. 1, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) announced that due to the surge of Covid-19 infections in California, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) postponed the release of youth sport guidelines and CIF will postpone all in-person practices and competitions until after Jan. 1, 2021.
At the start of the new year, CDPH will reassess the program and determine if it is safe for students, in which case CIF will update the guidance for youth sports. If it is not safe, CIF will continue to postpone activities.
CIF has cancelled all Regional and State championships for all season one sports. CIF seeks to give student-athletes the opportunity to participate in a longer season, rather than a truncated season with post-season events being limited to a number of schools.
Additionally, boys’ volleyball has been moved to season two in hopes of avoiding the loss of a second season. An updated season two calendar will be released in January with boys’ volleyball included.
