CIF Sac-Joaquin Section releases adjusted 2020-2021 high school sports calendar; football practice starts Dec. 7

Following CIF State’s announcement that high school sports in California will not return until December 2020 at the earliest, the Sac-Joaquin Section released their sports calendar for the 2020-2021 school year on Monday.

The three traditional high school sports seasons – fall, winter and spring – are now scheduled to be played between December and June and will be condensed into two seasons, fall and spring.

Cross-country, boys volleyball, girls volleyball, and water polo are set to start practice on Dec. 14. Contests for those sports can begin on Dec. 28.

Football practice is scheduled to begin Dec. 7 – a week earlier than most sections – and games are scheduled to start Jan. 8.

You can find the complete calendar, memo from Commissioner Mike Garrison, and more info here.
