CHICO, Calif. -- Presidents for high school athletic leagues in our area are getting ready to vote on a new proposed schedule for this school year’s athletic season.
Student-athletes throughout our region will soon find out timelines for when their sport will begin.
The California Interscholastic Federation Northern Section proposed this schedule you can view HERE.
As you will see, there are multiple timelines across different sports and school sizes in this proposed schedule.
Each start and end date will depend on which sports want to compete for a state championship versus having their own independent season.
Action News Now spoke to coaches and players about this schedule and what it means to hopefully get a chance to play.
“My initial reaction when I read the proposal was hope. I was excited that there's a possibility that we may be able to play athletics,” said Chico High School Basketball Coach Abe Simmons.
“Being a student-athlete helps you with adversity. You're down in games. Up in games and having to be able to come back and stay focused,” said Senior Matthew James.
Coaches throughout our area told Action News Now they are meeting this week to learn more about this schedule.
This proposal is a recommendation, but will be voted on during the NSCIF Board of Managers meeting on Sept. 16.
