CIF Update on Club Sports and High School Athletics

The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) made an important announcement yesterday which paves the way for student-athletes participating in club sports to also participate in high school athletics simultaneously. The previous interpretation of the Youth Sports Guidelines released by the California Department of Public Health seemed to indicate that this was not allowed, but the latest release from the CIF helps clarify the matter. This is a major development in overcoming a hurdle that was going to prevent many of our student-athletes from participating in interscholastic athletics at Dublin High School. The full statement from the CIF on the matter is below.
