Eagles News · Fall Sports Update and Spring Outlook

The CIF Southern Section has announced that they are canceling the 2020-21 Fall Sports Playoffs/Championships. With that said, the Fall season is NOT officially canceled. What this announcement means is that the playoffs, which are supported by CIF, will not be taking place. CIF announced today that they will leave it up to each school/league to determine what kind of schedule they will be able to play. Our league, the Western Athletic Conference, has a meeting planned for Wednesday, January 20 to discuss what our plan of action will be. The safety of our student-athletes will always be at the front of our decision-making process. The current “stay at home order” and the guidelines from the California Department of Public Health and local health authorities will be considered as we make those decisions. CIF announced that the fall season must be completed by April 3rd for football and March 20 for volleyball.

Spring sports are still on track with the original schedule sent out by CIF in July.  CIF will re-evaluate the Spring playoffs/championships in mid-April.

We will continue to keep you up to date on the status of Southlands Christian Athletics. Please continue to pray for our students, our school, our athletic program, and our country as we endure this trial. We continue to hold on to His promises through these difficult times.

ROMANS 5:3-4- “We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.”
