CIF Not Cancelling Post-Season Events – Yet

The governing body for high school sports in California 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

The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) State Office and the 10 Section Commissioners held their annual scheduled spring meeting on Tuesday and the agenda included a discussion concerning the impact of COVID-19 on the 2020 CIF spring sports season.

“While the time may come when we have to cancel post-season events, today is not that day,” said CIF Executive Director Ron Nocetti.

South Pasadena High School is a CIF member.

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, Nocetti said 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,” he said.

In addition, the originally scheduled April 3, CIF Federated Council Meeting has been postponed and will be rescheduled no earlier than May 8 and will be held via teleconference.
