The CIF-San Diego Section posted its “master calendar” for the 2020-21 school year in high school sports, which includes the postponed start of fall sports until December due to the COVID 19 crisis.
The calendar lists the breakdown of seasons and the dates when each sport can begin practice, when teams in each sport can begin competition, when the regular seasons must end and a general timetable for CIF-SD playoffs. The new plan calls for a Season 1 and a season 2.
Season 1 will include badminton, traditional competitive cheer, cross country, field hockey, football, gymnastics, boys volleyball, girls volleyball, girls water polo, boys water polo and roller hockey. Practices for all Season 1 sports may begin Dec. 12.

SR Little League Fall Ball cancelled
The Scripps Ranch Little League (SRLL) Fall Ball season has been cancelled this year, according to an Aug. 9 announcement.
The SRLL Board decided it was best to not register players for Fall Ball and then wait to see if they could play games between September and November. The COVID-19 pandemic caused delays in opening youth sports, and there was a high chance no games would be allowed locally before November. With this information, and knowing Fall Ball is a season of only playing games on Sundays, the Board decided it was best to skip this year.
SRLL hopes it will be able to hold a season in the spring looks to hold an “early bird registration” at the end of this year for 2021.
