Boys and Girls Soccer to play in Spring 2021 – CIF Announcement

On Monday, 7/20, the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section (CIFSS) announced the 2020-21 sports calendars. Based on state and local health care agency directives and guidelines, the CIF has planned for all sports to compete in two seasons: Fall and Spring, with the majority of fall sports beginning in mid-late December, and spring sports starting late February/early March.

The Edison Boys Soccer program has been moved from a WINTER sport to a SPRING sport per this new guidance from CIF.  The outline of the scheduling is below.

In addition, the CIF has temporarily suspended Bylaws 600-605 in all sports for the 2020-21 school year.  Due to the need to move sports to non-traditional times of the year, the CIF is temporarily suspending Bylaws 600, 601, 602, 603, 604, and 605 for all sports for the 2020-21 school year.  Accordingly, students will be allowed to participate on an outside team at the same time they participate on their high school team.  As per CIF Article 23, local schools, school districts, leagues, and Sections may develop a more restrictive rule than the CIF State Office with respect to the aforementioned Bylaws.

We will keep you appraised of further updates to the sports schedule, including potential camps, tryouts, or changes to the CIF or district directives, etc. on this site.
