(AXIOS) The fall high school sports season in California will be postponed until at least December, the California Interscholastic Federation announced Monday.
The state of play: The three typical high school sports seasons — fall, winter and spring — will be played between December and June and compressed into either fall or spring seasons.
- Football — a staple of fall Fridays — will now take place in winter and spring, with the last game played no later than April 17, 2021.
- Basketball and baseball will now overlap and end in late June, forcing multisport athletes to make tough decisions.
- Athletes will be permitted to participate on club teams at the same time as their high school seasons in a temporary suspension of CIF rules.
