Update from MCAL Office:
(posted Feb 2, 2021)

The basis for this information is to put forth a scheduled calendar of sports for the remainder of the year to be contested amongst MCAL schools. The goal is to allow for all sports to have a season which lasts a minimum of 7 weeks, as per the guidance from North Coast Section, and for some as long as 10 weeks. In addition, per CIF 504.D., each sport within leagues must provide an equal number of opportunities for student-athletes in the same sport (ex. Boys and Girls water polo) as well as like sports (baseball and softball). We also propose the last day of competition be June 5th so as to avoid any conflicts with finals and/or graduation.

Due to being tied to the colored tier system set forth by CDPH, we have attempted to gauge the timing for entry into each tier once we leave the stay at home order, which we hope is by February 1, 2021. Along with the colored tier system we have taken into account the usage that will take place in the various venues our sports are contested. We believe we will play purple and red-tiered sports this year.

We have slated purple-tiered sports to begin in late February or March 1. Due to facility issues with each gender we have broken the purple-tiered sports into 2 seasons. We have decided to have the original spring sports, which missed out last year, play in the 2nd half of the remaining time to ensure they will take place.

Red-tiered sports will start in mid March, which is when we believe the opportunity will exist.

We have pushed orange-tiered sports to an April 12 start date, which gives 8 weeks to complete these seasons and a one week buffer should we not yet be in the orange tier. Yellow-tiered sports are set for a start date of April 19 and are squeezed into a tight window. With 7 weeks being the minimum amount of time for a season to run, we have slated a cancellation date of April 19 for the orange and yellow-tiers. Should we not reach these tiers by this date those seasons will, unfortunately, have to be canceled.

The last season to address is football, which is an orange-tiered sport. In order to have a 5 game season and adhere to the 7-week minimum as per the guidance from North Coast Section, we must be in the orange tier by March 1 or we will not meet the CIF mandated end date for football of April 17. Three weeks of practice are required prior to the first game and a March 1 start would allow for a 5 game season with games at the end of weeks 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7. This means we will have to cancel football if we are not in the orange tier by the scheduled March 1 start date.
