Spartans News · CIF-SS Announcement on Fall Sports Playoffs


Hello Spartan Community,

In what has continues to be unprecedented times, I wanted to share the latest correspondence received from the CIF-SS office regarding athletics.

On Tuesday, January 19, 2021, CIF-SS announced that due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was made to cancel all Season 1 sport playoffs and championships. This effects the sports of cross country, football, and water polo.

A few points of emphasis based upon this announcement:

  1. The announcement to cancel post-season competition is disappointing, but does not mean that the season has been canceled. On the contrary, what this does, is give us a few more weeks at the end of the season to hold contests.
  2. Currently the schedule for Spring Sports was not changed in any way.
  3. Damien is committed to having our student-athletes compete in contests just as soon as possible. We continue to monitor guidance given to us by the state, county, and Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

In the meantime, we will continue to hold on site practices under the current guidelines given to us by the appropriate authorities.

We wish you much health and happiness as we all continue to partner together to see this through.
