CIF-SS to vote on earlier start date for some sports

OCVARSITY.COM

The CIF-Southern Section Council, the section’s legislative body, will meet Wednesday to vote on proposals that include changing the first day of competition and final day of competition for a few sports’ seasons for the 2016-17 school year.

If the proposal is approved, it would move the date of first contest for girls tennis, girls volleyball and boys water polo from the current Aug. 29 date to Aug. 22. Playoffs would also start earlier in those sports.

The date changes would be dramatic in spring sports. Baseball and softball, now scheduled to have first games in 2017 on Feb. 25, would have first games on Feb. 11. CIF-SS baseball and softball championship games in 2017 are scheduled for June 2 and 3; they would be moved to May 19 and 20 if the proposal passes.

Starting dates and championships would also be earlier in boys tennis and boys volleyball.

The proposal is designed to make the sports season in better alignment with when classes begin and end at most CIF-SS member schools.
