For the first time since January 2020, the City Section held an in-person board meeting Tuesday at Birmingham High after two years of Zoom meetings due to pandemic restrictions.
Among the topics of discussion was the announcement that El Camino College and Valley College are the top candidates to host the City Section football finals during Thanksgiving week.
The board has approved a change in the football rules. If a player gets two yellow cards in a game, the player will no longer be banned for the next game. An ejection only takes place during the current game.
The CIF is postponing competitive jubilation until the winter, which begins in the 2023-24 school year, so City Section schools will have to adapt and the fight for gym time will increase.
University Pathways Medical Magnet was elected full member of the City Section, giving 91 schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District with physical education programs.
The City Section Open Division and Division I girls’ volleyball championships are expected to be played at Cal State Northridge. A final contract is expected to be signed soon.
The CIF is moving towards a mandatory requirement for each of its 1,619 member schools to complete an annual athlete and coach participation survey. The 10 sections are in the process of approving the rule. About 10% to 15% failed to complete the form.
