As of July 20, 2020: The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) has determined, in collaboration with their 10 Sections, that education-based athletics for the 2020-21 school year will begin with a modified season of sport schedule. Each CIF Section Office will release their own calendar to reflect regular season starting and ending dates and Section playoffs. It is anticipated that most Section start dates will commence in December 2020 or January 2021.
Accordingly, CIF is continuously monitoring the directives and guidelines released from the Governor's Office, the California Department of Education, the California Department of Public Health, and local county health departments and agencies as these directives and guidelines are followed by their member schools/school districts with student health and safety at the forefront. As these guidelines change, CIF Sections may allow for athletic activity to potentially resume under the summer period rules of the local Section. Also, given the calendar change, the CIF has temporarily suspended Bylaws 600-605 (Outdoor Competition) in all sports for the 2020-21 school year.
