Thought you all might want to read the latest message from CIF to member schools-

Southern Section Principals and Athletic Directors:

The CIF State office has asked us to clarify something regarding the summer period as there are some schools wanting to play contests during this period. As we stated in our release on July 20 (see below), those types of activities may not take place until allowed by the appropriate state and local agencies. 

Temporary Extension of Bylaws 501.F and 501.G (Summer Period) 

Given that the CIF has moved the start of its traditional seasons of sport to December 2020, once allowed by the appropriate state and local agencies, CIF Sections may extend their summer period up until the first date of their Fall regular season sports calendar. (For the CIF Southern Section, that date is December 12, 2020.) All summer period activities must be authorized by the member school’s principal/designee. As per CIF Article 23, local schools, school districts, leagues, and Sections may develop a more restrictive rule than the CIF State Office with respect to the aforementioned Bylaws.

As of today, the following statement from the California Department of Public Health remains in effect for our schools:

"Outdoor and indoor sporting events, assemblies, dances, rallies, field trips, and other activities that require close contact or that would promote congregating are not permitted at this time. For example, tournaments, events, or competitions, regardless of whether teams are from the same school or from different schools, counties, or states are not permitted at this time."

Message from our AP in charge of WR Athletics-

Good afternoon Wildcats, 

This is very important information for any student that participates in a Wildcat Athletics Program!  Please read the entire email.  

As you have seen the district email that was sent regarding Voluntary Athletic Conditioning, I would like to provide further information about how we at West Ranch will be moving forward with your student’s safety as our number one priority.   

This year will be functioning with Fall and Spring sports as set by CIF.  

Fall sports include: Boys & Girls Volleyball, Cross Country, Cheer, & Football

Spring sports include: Baseball, Softball, Boys & Girls Basketball, Boys & Girls Golf, Boys & Girls Soccer, Boys & Girls Lacrosse, Boys & Girls Tennis, Swim & Dive, and Track & Field.

Students can only participate in one Fall sport and one Spring sport this year.  Please double check the seasons above to see if the sports you play conflict.  If you have questions, please email the Athletic Director over your sport below.  

A voluntary conditioning program will begin for all students currently enrolled in an athletic class.  Students who are not currently enrolled in an 8th or 9th period athletic class will need to wait to try-out before they can begin attending.  Tryouts will be held at a later date.  For questions about a specific sport, please contact the head coach via email.  

Voluntary Condition program will begin on the following dates:

September 21 - Fall Sports

September 28 - Spring Sports

The time and location of your student’s voluntary conditioning program will be set by your coach.  Coaches will notify students through their Google Classroom prior to the start date.  

This voluntary conditioning program is not tied to the grade in the athletic class; however, it is an opportunity for students to see one another, get out of the house, and return to a place they love, West Ranch.  There are very specific protocols (see attached) set by LA County Department of Public Health and William S. Hart School District.  All conditioning programs will be held outside and students must have their own equipment (facemask, athletic gear/workout attire, and water).  At no time will students be allowed inside classrooms, weight room, locker rooms or the gymnasiums.  This program will begin as conditioning only, students will not be using any equipment (balls, bats, sticks, goals, etc.) for their sport.  

To be able to participate in your program's conditioning, student athletes must have completed the following by Friday, September 18th.  Please contact your head coach if you are not sure if you have already completed these two steps.  

  1. Sports Physical (see attachment on West Ranch Athletics website)

  2. AthleticClearance.com (see instructions on West Ranch Athletics website)

Once you receive confirmation that you have completed the above two steps, students will print the following two documents and bring them with you on the first day of camp.  

  1. Student Liability Release Form (See attached) - Must be turned in on first day of camp

  2. Foothill League Student Participation Admission Ticket (See attached) - Must be turned in daily.  

If you do not have access to a printer, please come to West Ranch and pick up any of the forms from the campus supervisors.  Parents/Students can drive up the fire lane and pick up the forms from the front gate, there is no need to exit your vehicle.  This is available Monday through Friday from 7am - 3pm. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of the members of our Athletic Admin team.  

Mrs. Hinze - Assistant Principal over Athletics

Ms. Garcia - Athletic Director over Tennis, Volleyball, Basketball, and Lacrosse

Ms. Konrad - Athletic Director over Athletic Clearance, Girls Soccer, Softball and Track & Field

Mr. Lindgreen - Athletic Director over Cross Country, Football, Golf, Boys Soccer, Baseball, and Swim & Dive

We are very excited to have students back on campus!  Please help us in following all guidelines so that students can continue with this program and further opportunities.  

Mrs. Hinze

Assistant Principal
