Statement Regarding Education-Based Athletics for 2020-21

Posted: Dec 01, 2020

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.

Therefore, to provide the 10 CIF Sections, our 1,605 member schools, and more than 800,000 student-athletes the best opportunity to compete in Season 1 Sports, once allowed by the CDPH and local county offices of public health, the CIF State Office is removing all Regional and State Championship events from the Season 1 Sports calendar. By canceling Regional and State Championship events, more student-athletes will have the opportunity to participate in a longer season, rather than a truncated season with Regional and State post-season play for a limited number of schools.

Additionally, boys volleyball will be moved to Season 2 to avoid the loss of a second full season, and an updated Season 2 calendar to include boys volleyball will be posted in January.    

The CIF is confident this decision is a necessary and reasonable action for our member schools, student-athletes, and school communities in light of the current statewide crisis. This revision to the CIF State 2020-21 Season 1 Sports calendar offers our Sections and Leagues the flexibility and needed time to plan for the return to practice and competition once updated guidance is provided by the CDPH.

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.  Good news is we have until December 7th.
 
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.

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.
