The information relayed last week from San Juan Unified and the CIF regarding school closures for the entire year has inevitably led to our season ending, the coaching staff would like to thank all the Track and Field athletes. The time and effort that you all put in to be in the best position for a successful season is very appreciated. We are thankful to have had the opportunity to coach you and look forward to 2021 when we can compete again!
CIF Statement Regarding 2020 Spring Sports
SACRAMENTO, CALIF. – Based on the recent statements issued by Governor Newsom and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, regarding schools turning to distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) does not see an avenue for the spring sports season to continue. As such, in consultation today with the 10 Section Commissioners, the decision has been made to cancel spring Section, Regional, and State Championship events.
We understand this is disappointing for everyone involved in education-based athletics and empathize with our student-athletes and all who are impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. As always, our top priority is everyone’s ongoing health and safety during this challenging time, and we all look forward to the day when education-based athletics resumes.
CIF Executive Director
Uniforms were delivered to the Sacramento location to be printed just as stores were closing. Therefore, uniforms are delayed until the store reopens for printing. The printing process only takes a couple days. Uniforms should be ready as soon as businesses are cleared to re-open. Once the social distancing restrictions are eased we will arrange for uniform distribution.
Rio utilizes the same uniform each year in both Track & Field as well as Cross Country. While you won’t be able to use your uniform this year for Track, you will use the same uniform for your entire Track and Field career at Rio! As the local printer must purchase the uniforms from his supplier prior to printing them we are unable to get a refund on uniforms.
