The month of December was supposed to be the start of the delayed Fall Sports season but with the surge of COVID cases throughout the state, adjustments have been made to try and salvage a Fall season.
On December 1st, CIF at the state and section level announced that the Fall Season would not be able to start on time. CIF State announced that the State and Regional Playoffs and Championships for all Fall sports would be cancelled. The cancellation of the State Playoffs provides some flexibility for Sections to further adjust their calendars to ensure that league play and playoffs can take place. You can view the full press release from the Southern Section and State below.
This week the California Department of Health released guidelines for outdoor and indoor youth sports. The guidelines allow for conditioning, practice, skill building and training to be conducted outdoors with 6 feet of distance, however they also state that the earliest that competition between teams can take place is January 25th. Competition allowance will be based upon the color tier status being used by the state.
