Hello ECHS Athletes and Families,
We want to say thank you so much for your patience as we have waited and anticipated new updates from CIF locally and state wide. This week we did received a new update from CIF that stated we will be allowed to begin some sports with competitions. Please keep in mind that all of this information is predicated on the “County Stay at Home Order” being lifted and the Color Tiers.
Purple Tier Sports
Season 01 – Cross County (Feb 1)
Season 01 – Swim (TBD by the Conference)
Season 02 – Girls Golf (Feb 8), Boys Golf (Feb 15), Boys and Girls Tennis (Feb 15), Track and Field (Feb 15)
** Contingent upon our county lifting the “Stay at Home” order.
Orange Tier Sports
Season 01 – Football (TBD), and Girls Volleyball (TBD)
Season 02 – Boys Soccer (Feb 22), Girls Soccer (Feb 22), Boys Volleyball (Mar 13)
** Contingent upon our county remaining out of the “Stay at Home” order and county currently in Orange Tier.
Yellow Tier Sports
Season 02 – Boys Basketball (March 15), Girls Basketball (March 15), and Competitive Cheer (Feb 22)
** Contingent upon our county remaining out of the “Stay at Home” order and county currently in Yellow Tier.
At this point in time my advice to our athletes and families is to be sure that all athletic physicals and clearance forms are completed and submitted to our athletic department.
We understand that all these updates and releases will create a lot of questions. The State CIF office is asking for our patience as they work with our section governance and conference leadership. Please take a moment to read all the information provide with this video as they may answer a lot of your questions.
