COVID-19 Athletics Update

August 3, 2020

With the release of the new dates for the 2020-2021 athletic season, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) has announced that three sports seasons have now been condensed into two. These two seasons will include Fall Sports (beginning in late December) & Spring Sports (which will begin in late February).

The breakdown of sports by season is as follows:
Fall Sports
Spring Sports
(beginning in late December)
(beginning in late February)
Cross Country
Water Polo
Swimming & Diving
Track & Field
Beach Volleyball

Additionally, CIF has temporarily suspended the rule prohibiting students in participating in contests for outside teams and clubs during the high school sports season. As such, student-athletes can play for both Marymount and her Club Team for this academic year only.

Marymount Athletics will also suspend the rule of "one sport one season" for the 2020-2021 academic year. With so many sports offered during the Spring season, many sports will overlap. As such, a student-athlete will be allowed to play in two sports during the Spring season. Coaches will work with their players to help accommodate this schedule, should they choose this option. A modified attendance requirement will apply.

Tryout Update

All Marymount tryouts originally scheduled for August have been postponed until later in the school year for the typical fall sports season (cross-country, golf, tennis and volleyball).

Specific dates and times TBA.

In-person Workout Update

At this time, in-person workouts for all sports have been postponed due to COVID-19. As soon as we are able to return to play/workout in person, then a tryout schedule and practice schedule will be released. In the meantime, the Athletics Department is actively rescheduling all contests to provide a full, challenging and fun experience for our student-athletes.

Coaches will be reaching out to their players with updated information and a modified virtual practice plan until we are able to hold in-person workouts.
