Multiple Teams · Folsom H.S. Athletics Update-December 18, 2020


A message to our Bulldog Athletics Families

Here is a new update on all high school sports.

1)  The State of California has determined which sports will be able to begin taking part in competitions based upon which colored tier their county is.  There will be different sports for each tier. Please click on the link below for specific information regarding sports and tier levels.  https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/outdoor-indoor-recreational-sports.aspx

2)  The CIF Section office, has decided that regardless of the color tiers, they will not be changing the list of sports in Season 1 (XC, FB and Girls VB) and Season 2 (all other sports), but they did decide that they are cancelling all postseason section playoffs for football and girls volleyball. They are of the belief that the chance to play more sports contests outweighs the possibility for a postseason, so with the guarantee that Season 1 will be starting late, the SJS will forego a traditional postseason to allow all our schools a chance to participate in more contests. The former dates reserved for State and Regional playoffs will be used for a potential “bowl game matchups” and the Section postseason dates are now part of the regular season.

New regular season end dates:

Girls Volleyball – March 13, 2021 with Bowl Game – March 20, 2021

Football – April 10, 2021 with Bowl Game April 16 or 17, 2021 3)

Cross Country postseason will be evaluated in mid to late January.

4)  We are hoping to receive more information from the Section with any other potential changes approximately January 15, 2021.  As of now, no official games can begin before January 25, 2021.

5) Outdoor training/conditioning can restart as of January 4, 2021.

Thank you,
