Spring Sports Cancelled Amidst Coronavirus Crisis

April 3, 2020

GRANADA HILLS, Calif. –

It is with a heavy heart that, in conjunction with the State CIF, we have cancelled the spring 2020 state, regional and section championships. In the best interests of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, fans, and school communities, health and safety are first and foremost our number one priority. “As difficult a decision this was, we must look out for the well-being of each of our studentathletes, coaches, and educators. Our Section is heartbroken that we will not continue with spring sports,” Commissioner Vicky Lagos said. “The opportunity for a student-athlete to participate in sports plays a valuable and integral part of their character formation as a teenager and young adult. “We are heartbroken that so many of our student-athletes and especially the senior class will not be able to continue competing in the sport they desire. During this unprecedented time, overcoming this adversity will be a defining ‘championship’ moment for each of our athletes.” The CIF LA City Section will consult with our Board of Managers and member schools to see how we can support and celebrate the class of 2020 once we overcome this current crisis. We will continue to follow the recommendations set forth by Governor Gavin Newsom, Mayor Eric Garcetti, and the CDC.
