: : : : : : 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.
: : : Where did you see this released?
: : I think I saw this schedule this poster is talking about but it was actually for Junior Colleges. Donít think CIF has released anything yet.
: That is correct. City College is down to 3 proposals they are very public about. All 3 include basketball starting in January/February since they are nervous about things picking back up in November or December.
: City College is down to 3 proposals, the actual City College athletic calendar will be released on July 20. Also happening on July 20: CIF will be releasing their CIF calendar for 2020-2021. I can certainly see winter sports of basketball starting up in January/February also. We will see how it all plays out.
My incoming freshman son has a solid shot making the varsity team. If CIF / school districts do not allow to play this year, pulling him back to 8th grade. That is the bottom line. Straight A student as well which is more important.
