Mira Loma is excited for the 2020-2021 Seasons!
The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) and the Sac Joaquin Section (SJS) announced the alterations that will be made to the 2020-2021 sports calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This new sports calendar was developed by the Section Commissioners and the State CIF office after several months of research as well as input from Coaches, Athletic Directors, and School Administrators.
All sports were divided into two seasons of play (Season #1 and Season#2) instead of the standard three seasons of play (fall, winter, and spring).
Includes the following sports: cross country (men & women), volleyball (men & women), water polo (men & women), and football. Season #1 will have the following start dated for official tryouts:
12/14/2020- Cross Country, Volleyball, Water Polo
Season #2 includes the following sports: baseball, basketball (men & women), golf (men & women), soccer (men & women), softball, swim (men & women), tennis (men & women), wrestling (men & women), Track and Field (men & women). Season #2 will have the following start dates for official tryouts:
2/22/2021- Basketball, Soccer, Tennis, Wrestling
3/08/2021- Baseball, Softball
3/15/2021- Golf, Swim, Track and Field
While we understand that this set up is not ideal for multi-sport athletes, it allows us to carry out full seasons of sport with a minimal crossover between the two seasons of sport. We will work closely between our multi-sports to alleviate as much stress as possible. Furthermore, facility issues were considered by the CIF in order to avoid the cancellation of specific levels of sports programs. This is obviously (and hopefully) only a one-year adjustment due to the pandemic and we will return to normal, three-season sports season (fall, winter, spring) the following year.
In the coming weeks, Mira Loma Athletic Department will adjust their game schedules, practice schedules, and training regimens to best prepare the student-athletes for this adaptation of the schedule.
Thank you for your support and patience.
L.E. Hay - Athletic Director and all our Mira Loma Coaching Staff
