REDDING — The Northern Section officially approved the 2020-21 prep sports calendar during a Board of Managers meeting held Wednesday.
The calendar that was approved was the same calendar proposed on Sept. 1.
The calendar is a hybrid between two seasons, fall and spring, and a third season, which is a slightly condensed season that concludes with the section playoffs, but also has less overlap in seasons for multi-sport athletes.
Schools will have to decide by Sept. 25 which calendar to use for competition.
The fall sports season will consist of cross-country, football, field hockey, ski and snowboard, volleyball and basketball. Spring will be football, volleyball, soccer, basketball, wrestling, baseball, golf, softball, swimming, tennis and track and field.
The “three-season” model will includes football, soccer and basketball, but does not offer an opportunity to qualify for California Interscholastic Federation regional and state championships.
