Spotlight on Athletics

April 2020

I wanted to take a moment to update our student-athletes on the current situation in regards to the current postponement sports.  

As had been announced previously, the governing bodies of rugby and ice hockey unfortunately have been forced to cancel the season for this spring.  

There are several local, regional, and state meetings this week to discuss the current situation in CIF sports. Yesterday, the league commissioners from the North Coast Section met. The input will be shared with many across the state in hopes of gathering as much feedback from leaders across our section. 

Today, the East Bay Athletic League have a meeting to discuss what options remain for the spring season at the local level. Tomorrow, the CIF will meet with all of the section commissioners from around the state to discuss the next steps in regards to CIF state championships. 

Ultimately the goal is to have some sort of spring season and know that everyone will do everything they can within their power to create some sort of spring competition. As soon as we are able to share updated information, I will do so through the different communication channels of De La Salle athletics.
