There are no plans to change CIF sports schedule

CIF executive director Ron Nocetti

Although Michigan is the latest state high school organization expected to resume playing high school sports this fall after originally delaying seasons because of COVID-19, the CIF’s executive director, Ron Nocetti, said Wednesday there are no plans to change the new CIF schedule that has sports beginning in December and January.

For one, the governor of Michigan gave clearance to play high school sports. In Colorado, the governor also gave clearance but the state organization has decided not to bring back fall sports. In California, there’s still a statewide safety mandate that bars youth organizations from playing competitive sports. Also, most public and private schools have yet to return to in-person classes.

“Our schools have made plans and readjusted schedules,” Nocetti said.


If the state changes its health mandates, schools have been given the option of using summer rules until official practice begins.

“We are moving forward with a December/January start,” Nocetti said.
