  • Resumption of Youth Sports Update: On August 3, 2020, the California Department of Public Heath (CDPH) issued a new COVID-19 Interim Guidance as related to Youth Sports, including school-based, club and recreational youth sports (including but not limited to football, basketball, volleyball, hockey, softball, baseball, soccer, swim, water polo, gymnastics, cheer, dance, and karate). Additionally, the CDPH issued a Youth Sports Questions and Answersmemorandum. Under CDPH’s Interim Guidance and FAQs, CDPH is allowing youth sports and physical education ONLY when the following can be maintained:
    1.  physical distancing of at least six (6) feet between participants; and 
    2. a stable cohort, such as a class, that limits the risk of transmission (see the CDC Guidance on Schools and Cohorting). For sports that cannot be played with sufficient distancing or cohorting, only physical conditioning and training is permitted and ONLY where physical distancing can be maintained. Conditioning and training should focus on individual skill building (e.g., running drills and body weight resistance training). Sports that cannot be played with sufficient distancing and cohorting are not permitted.

      Consistent with State requirements, outdoor youth sports practices and conditioning are permitted. For the month of August, all athletic surfaces that are not expressly closed for renovations will be available to use on a first-come, first-serve basis only. Fields will not be reservable and lights will not be available. All activities must comply with State regulations on distancing and cohorting. For information on reservations for September, please email by 5:00pm on Thursday, August 13th.
