: : Say it is not true but I seriously doubt there will be any high school sports this year.
: : The first thing will be to determine if kids will even return to school in the fall. All signs are pointing towards a second wave in the fall. I want games as much as anyone but the safety of the kids is the most important thing.

: Hate to say it but - YES - i agree - there will be NO HS basketball this year. Probably not football either. Too many obstacles in the way. I feel bad for seniors who played sports all their lives - become a HS senior - but - no season. Its bad for everyone.

CIF released its backup plan today. Only Fall Sports would be women's golf and cross country (which if you're good means you are social distancing).

Basketball would begin practice 1/18. Followed by a 2 month season starting early February with a max of 20 games. There were other details but I don't have them handy.

First reaction is it would put a strain on schools who have a lot of multiple sport athletes since all the seasons would overlap. Also great difficulty in balancing game/practice time for schools with multiple levels of basketball and volleyball teams.
