Winter high school sports were cleared to begin again in Santa Barbara. I am hearing rumblings of the Tournament of Champions happening next week.

Why does the girls in Southern Section and San Diego Section not go to the Fall Season like the rest of California? I understand the argument of "The pool space...", but that falls on it's face as the rest of us in California makes it work. I also believe another issue is the one coach for both the Boys and Girls Team, but some schools make it work (looking at you Garces Memorial in Backwardsfield,...errr, I mean Bakersfield).

In my opinion and mine alone, I think this is a great impetus to make the change. I also believe once the change is made, we can have a true State CIF Championship (Open, D-1, D-2,....D-7,etc...). I also think another change would be the pulling the rest of the nation towards a one combined season (Florida, Texas, Michigan, Hawaii, Illinois, are some states that it's a spring sport).

Someone can remind me, but was there any tournament that was cancelled in the fall due to COVID?

Finally should this be a new topic and allow the brainstorming?


Previously someone mentioned moving swim to winter, and girls polo to spring. This might help with pool access and would be more in line with the collegiate season. I think that might be a good way to go, although you still have weather issues with outdoor winter sports in other parts of the state.

Spring leaks way too far into the prep for summer club season. It would be fine for clubs made up mainly of their HS players, but clubs that draw from larger areas would suffer. Polo in winter is fine - Nor Cal should try it.

Yup. Games on Friday and Saturday.


Are the times and match-ups the same as the previous schedule, just with the new dates?

Does not appear to be run as a tournmanent. Maybe just games for whoever could get up there and also had open days on their schedule
