The CIF says all fall high school sports seasons will be delayed until December 2020 or January 2021 at the earliest. Week 1 of football would begin on January 7, 2021, according to a schedule released by the Central Section.
Per this morning's @cifstate announcement regarding a modified 2020-21 sports schedule, here is the Central Section's anticipated season dates and a message from Commissioner Ryan Tos. pic.twitter.com/yvAD5qYyvU— CIF Central Section (@CifCentral) July 20, 2020
The last day for section playoffs for volleyball, water polo and cross county will now be in March 2021, and football's will be in April 2021.
Due to this ruling, high school athletes will now be able to participate in club sports during their high school season for the first time.
