The California Interscholastic Federation State Office and the 10 Section Commissioners announced Tuesday that it take no further action regarding spring sports, deciding to wait for further guidance from federal, state and local agencies.

The announcement was made during the regularly scheduled spring meeting, which 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,” the CIF wrote in a statement.

“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 originally scheduled April 3 CIF Federated Council Meeting has been postponed and will be rescheduled no earlier than May 8, 2020 and will be held via teleconference.
