Fall Sports Delayed: Season Begins Jan 8, 2021

In July CIF-State released a statement about plans for all sports for the 2020-2021 school year. Afterward, the CIF-City Section (our governing section) released its own statement and published a revised sports calendar for the 2020-2021 school year.

Information pertaining to football is:
First Practice Date – Monday, December 14, 2020
-4 weeks of Official Football Practices begin Dec 14 and will be held daily over Winter Break (no practice on Christmas day & New Year’s Day). Players would be required to attend all practices.
Week 1 – First Game – Friday, January 8, 2021
Week 10 – Last Game – Friday, March 12, 2021
CIF Los Angeles City Playoffs – March 19, 26, April 2, 2021
CIF Los Angeles City Championship Finals – Friday/Saturday, April 9/10, 2021
Pali Football will share our Revised Game Schedule as soon as it is finalized.

Everything is subject to change. The CIF-City Section will continue to follow the recommendations and guidance of the California Department of Public Health as well as the County of Los Angeles Public Health Department. Summertime rules have been extended from when the school year begins in August through the beginning of Fall sports. As schools open and students return, provided state and local health authorities deem it safe to do so, schools can begin their pre-season preparations as they see fit, depending on what is allowed by health authorities during that time period. At this time, we have no information about any allowed fall activities.

What you / your family can do in the interim?

  • If your player owns his own helmet, please send it out for reconditioning as this takes about 8 weeks.
  • Schedule your player’s physical. Forms and uploading of information can be found here. Physicals will be likely due in November.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Coach Hyde at thyde@palihigh.org.

We can’t wait until it is safe for us to gather together and say Go Dolphins!
