Local Health Officials Will Not Decide When North Section Sports Begin.......

 

BUTTE COUNTY HEALTH OFFICIALS REFUTE NORTH SECTION CLAIM THAT THEY CAN AUTHORIZE COMPETITION IN HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS 

 

 

Earlier this week North Section officials said high school sports 
can be played as long as local health officials give their approval....
It raised eyebrows after the CIF Scholastic Federation ruled 
that high school sports wouldn't be played until December at the
earliest....
    Now, Butte County's Health Director is refuting the North 
Section's claim about local control of when high school sports 
are played...

 

 

    That is Danette York. She says she doesn't know where 
the North Section got their information but said their statement
was misleading....

 

 

    She says Health Departments from all over Northern California
called their offices inquiring as to what the North Section 
was talking about....

 

 

    Just minutes after the State CIF Federation said that high 
school sports would not be played until December, the North Section
released a statement saying they would "begin league play when the 
member school districts' county health officers approve implementation
of youth sports, including high school sports."
    The statement went on to say the decision could "result in the 
removal of some sports from CIF State Championship level playoffs."
    The North Section added that "teams may compete outside
league play when the member school districts' health officers approve
youth and high school sports." 
    Ultimately local health officials will have to give their final stamp 
of approval on the start of high school athletics, but as York clearly
stated high school athletics can not start until the state gives
clearance for them to do so. The state has given no indication they 
are close to allowing youth athletics to begin any time soon. 

North Section Goes Rogue

     

 

NORTH SECTION LEANING ON HEALTH DEPARTMENTS TO RESUME PLAY

 

     The Northern Section is going rogue. Just minutes after the CIF Interscholastic
Federation announced high school sports can not be played until December
at the earliest.....the North Section released a statement saying member school districts'
seasons can begin only when county health officers approve implementation of youth sports.


    Butte County officials have already said they can not make that decison and 
that its a State Health Department call. State Health officials have regulated youth 
sports since the pandemic began in Mid-March. There has been no indication from 
state officials that they will allow local youth sports in the forseeable future.

 

     One of the concerns that North Section officials are  trying to navigate is the preponderance of small schools with overlapping schedules in their region. In many cases athletes play multiple sports during the fall and spring. The belief is that this decision gives the Section

the autonomy to play sports on their timetables giving athletes the best chance to participate in sports, should the health crisis come to an end. 

 
    The North Section decision comes as young athletes ramp up for their upcoming
fall seasons. Sources tell KPAY that during a North Section call on Friday they discussed
various models, settling on a plan that has them operating separate from the CIF 
Federation. If local schools decide to operate outside of CIF oversight they relinquish
their right to play in the state high school playoffs. 

     
 

 

 

 

Butte College Suspends Fall Sports

 

California Community Colleges Athletic Seasons Suspended

 

     If the Butte College Football team is going to play, it won't be this year.

Community Colleges all over the state had their athletic seasons suspended 

by the Community College Governing Board.

     The on-going Coronavirus pandemic has made it impossible to safely plan

for athletic competition. The soccer, volleyball, cross country, golf and men's

and women's basketball seasons are also being suspended.

     The hope is that sports will return in 2021 and resume play at some point in

January. Spring sports, including baseball, softball and track-field would start their

seasons no sooner than late March.

     The Governing Board also determined that if games are played the teams 

in the Community College system would only play 70 percent of their normal 

schedule.

OAKLAND A'S BASEBALL coming to KPAYSPORTS 1290 !!!!

 

YOUR 2020 HOME FOR OAKLAND A'S BASEBALL IS 

KPAY SPORTS 1290 !!!!!

 

     The deal is done !!! KpaySports 1290 has finalized an agreement with the Oakland A's to carry all 60 games during the 2020 season.

     The A's will open the season on Friday July 24th against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Oakland. KpaySports will carry every game home and away including the post-season.

     "We are very excited to carry A's baseball. Northstate fans are hungry for sports and there is nothing like having a great team, with great broadcasters deliver it to the rabid baseball fans here in Northern California," said KpaySports Program Director Mike Baca.

     The A's are coming off a playoff season in 2019 and have several young talented stars entering the prime of their careers. Shortstop Marcus Semien was in the running for the AL MVP. Gold Glove winning third baseman Matt Chapman is coming off a fantastic campaign, while first baseman Matt Olson provides some left-handed pop in the middle of the lineup.

     On the mound the A's are excited about hard-throwing left-hander Jesus Luzardo and a stable of young power arms that should have them contending for the American League West.

     The A's will play two exhibition games against the San Francisco Giants on July 20th and 21st before opening the regular season against the Angels.

     Oakland opens the season with a 6-game homestand before hitting the road for their first road-trip of the season.
