State Board To Reconvene April 3
In a press release issued this afternoon the CIF State Office and the Section 10 Commissioners announced that they have not yet officially canceled the post-season for the current spring sports, which has been put on hold due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in their annual spring meeting.
The official release is posted below:
“Today the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) State Office and the 10 Section Commissioners held their annual scheduled spring meeting. The agenda included a discussion concerning the impact of COVID-19 on the 2020 CIF spring sports season.
While the time may come we have to cancel post-season events, today is not that day. In anticipation of further guidance and directives issued by federal, state and local government agencies regarding COVID-19, the CIF has not determined the future of spring sports events at this time and intends to reconvene with the 10 Section Commissioners on April 3 to revisit this issue. Pending that time, Sections will continue to confer with their local leadership and the State CIF will continue to monitor any directives and recommendations issued from the above entities.
The CIF will continue to work with our schools and school districts with the health and well-being of student-athletes and school communities as our priority.
Additionally, the originally scheduled April 3, 2020, CIF Federated Council Meeting has been postponed and will be rescheduled no earlier than May 8, 2020, and will be held via teleconference.
