: : : : question, i saw that CIF is updating weekly its guidelines on the tiers and sports etc. Does this mean and is it possible that eventually basketball will be moved from the restrictive yellow tier to a more doable red or orange tier?
: : : CIF cannot update tiers as the tiers are created by the state medical folks. If they move a sport from one tier to another, it will be reflected in the CIF publication.
: : Previous poster is correct. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) determines what tier different sports can begin competition. They will be updating their youth sports guidelines this week. The CIF-Southern Section posts for the purpose of showing which tier each county is currently in. Those updated COVID cases are released every Tuesday by noon.
: i appreciate the feedback. Do you think there is a chance that bball is moved into another tier? do we play this season?
As long as the current decision makers are in place I don't see a change in their mindset. The CIF-State folks that have been in communication with the State health people have not been able to convince them otherwise to date. We are in January & will be in a stay at home order here in SoCal for the month, then Purple Tier athletics can start in February. I would say Red Tier sports have a chance for a short season, Orange - slight chance, but football won't be played this late, Yellow tier - NO Chance. Hopefully with the vaccine roll out momentum can be built, but it's likely to be the fall before a typical Athletic year calendar/school can resume.
