High School Sports Outlook for the Year

With COVID-19 still a factor the governing bodies of California Sorts have issued a revised schedule hoping to preserve our 2020-21 seasons and address the health and safety of our student-athletes.  The chart below provides  a visual of how each season will play out.  Some answers to commonly asked questions are included in the FAQ section following the chart.  For more detailed information see the attached full press release from the CIF and NCS.

Frequently Asked Questions

1.  Has my sport been cancelled?
No.  As of right now every sport has been included in the new schedule.  
 
2.  The sports overlap.  Can I play two sports?
Yes.  First there is an overlap between the winter postseason and the start of the spring season.  This is no different than our traditional seasonal overlaps that many of you already have dealt with.  Athletes coming out from the winter season will be given a chance to try out for their spring sport once the winter sport has concluded.
Yes.  Second is the combining of seasons which has created overlap of sports which have traditionally taken place in different, non-conflicting seasons.  These athletes may participate in more than one sport during a season.  This is a decision that must be made keeping in mind the health and safety of the student (making sure to prevent injury from overuse) as well as the ability to keep up with their academic responsibilities.  Our coaches understand this dilemma and have agreed to support our athletes that choose to play more than one sport.
 
3.  Do I still need a physical?
Yes.  As of right now the MDUSD is requiring a current, completed Athletic Clearance form.  For those of you still not able to schedule an appointment there  are several options.  Most pediatricians (Kaiser and John Muir)  will sign off on your Athletic Clearance form if you have had a physical within the past year (no new appointment needed).   Just drop off, fax, or email the form to the doctors office and usually they will return it signed and dated within a week.  (That is what I have done with my son).  For those where that is not an option we are hoping to host one or two in person physical dates on campus for drop ins with John Muir Orthopedics.  Night Owl on Gregory Lane is also an option. Good news is we now have until December 14th.
 
4.  Can I play with my club team and school team at the same time?
Yes.  The CIF has suspended the rule about concurrent participation for this year.
 
5.  Will we have practices/workouts before the season?
Our current summer camps conclude August 7th.  School is scheduled to start  August 17th.  We will have a "dead period" of at least two weeks once school starts with no activity so our students can adjust to the distance learning format.  During that time we will be reviewing the prevailing protocols from the county and state to determine how to best move forward with preseason camps.
 
6.  When will we have game schedules?
The DAL athletic directors are currently working to revise the existing league schedules to fit the new dates.  Once this is done coaches will need to address non league play.  With limited field availability, limited officiating and the desire to keep games as local as possible I anticipate our schedules looking much different than in the past.

CIF Statement Regarding 2020-21 Sports Calendar and Bylaw Modifications 
SACRAMENTO, CALIF. – The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) has determined, in collaboration with our 10 Sections, that education-based athletics for the 2020-2021 school year will begin with a modified season of sport schedule (see following pages for 2020-21 sports calendar). Our calendar reflects the season for each CIF sport and the last date for Section Championships and Regional/State Championships in those sports where a Regional/State Championship is currently offered. Following this announcement, 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. 
We are 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 our 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 this calendar change, the CIF has temporarily suspended Bylaws 600-605 (Outside Competition) in all sports for the 2020-21 school year (see the following pages for more specific information related to these changes).

SACRAMENTO, CALIF. – Based on the recent statements issued by Governor Newsom and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, regarding schools turning to distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) does not see an avenue for the spring sports season to continue. As such, in consultation today with the 10 Section Commissioners, the decision has been made to cancel spring Section, Regional, and State Championship events.
We understand this is disappointing for everyone involved in education-based athletics and empathize with our student-athletes and all who are impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. As always, our top priority is everyone's ongoing health and safety during this challenging time, and we all look forward to the day when education-based athletics resumes.

MDUSD and Contra Costa County announce school closure until May 1st.  All spring sports athletic activities are shut down until then as well.
Dear MDUSD Community,
Today, six bay area counties and public health officials have made a unified, regional decision to extend school closures through May 1, 2020. This is a coordinated response to the continuing expansion of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the bay area, and represents a best effort to reduce the number of affected individuals and to keep our communities as safe as possible.
Hence, while it pains me to inform our public of this information, we have no other recourse but to continue with our school closure through Friday, May 1, 2020. Mount Diablo Unified School District schools will remain closed through May 1, 2020.
Pursuant to Governor’s Executive Order 26-20, the Mount Diablo Unified School District, in collaboration with Districts from across Contra Costa County and our Contra Costa County Office of Education, will continue to expand the District’s Distance Learning programs to the best of our ability. Food services will continue at 9 locations district-wide, and payments to our employees will continue through this period.
Our district is, like many other districts, expecting guidance from the California Department of Education to address many of our unknowns. Our administrative team is working diligently to provide the best and as much guidance as possible to our staff, and we are proud to have seen a coordinated effort to deliver continued services at a safe distance. This is a difficult and uncharted territory for all of us, and it will require patience, growth, and understanding from all of us.

Our situation continues to evolve and we will continue to communicate updates with any new information—by phone, email, social media, and on our district website.

Respectfully,

Superintendent Dr. Rob Martinez
Mount Diablo Unified School District

March 17 7:50pm

The CIF commissioners met today and released the attached statement. 

In short it states while the time may come when we have to cancel post-season events, today is not that day. In anticipation of further guidance and directives issued by federal, state and local government agencies regarding COVID-19, the CIF has not determined the future of spring sports events at this time and intends to reconvene with the 10 Section Commissioners on April 3 to revisit this issue.

I remain hopeful that we will be able to return to school and our sports programs in April.  In the meantime I will continue to share any updates I get with you.  I would encourage our student-athletes to keep up with workouts via text, HUDL, the website or other means to keep your skills sharp and stay in shape.  Please be aware that our College Park facilities (fields, goals, batting cages) are shut down and off limits.

Keep safe and I hope to see you all soon.

Welcome to College Park Athletics!  

Young people learn a great deal from their participation in interscholastic athletics.  Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part of each team in our athletic program.  Athletics play an important part, too, in helping the individual student develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body.  Athletic competition adds to our school spirit and helps all students – spectators as well as participants – develop pride in their school and maximize individual potential.

The MDUSD Governing Board recognizes that the district’s athletic program constitutes an integral component of the educational program and helps to build a positive school climate. The athletic program helps also to promote the physical, social, and emotional well-being and character development of participating students. Within the District's financial and personnel constraints, the athletic program shall be designed to meet students' interests and abilities and shall be varied in scope to ensure wide participation.

Participation is a privilege, not entitlement, and student athletes are expected to represent themselves, their team, school, family and community in a manner that demonstrates the highest standard of conduct, academic achievement and commitment to their fellow students.
