Hello Caiman Families,
Thank you for your patience as we all have been waiting to hear from CIF regarding updates on the potential of the upcoming sports season. We are all disappointed with yesterday's announcement as we were hoping to start our winter sports back up in a couple of weeks. Here is a LINK to the entire CIF update. Please view the following snippet from the press release:
SACRAMENTO, CALIF. — Due to the continued surge in COVID-19 infections, the California Department of Public Health has postponed the issuance of its updated youth sports 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.
We encourage you and your student athlete not to lose heart as we do have a couple of positive notes to share. We want to confirm that CIF is planning to have 2 seasons allowing all sports to experience a season of competition. We are also actively pursuing potential options outside of the CIF umbrella that would allow us to offer sports this school year, should it not be available under CIF. As we know, all of our decisions need to be in compliance with local health orders so please stay tuned for details as things develop.
