Announced on July 20, the California Interscholastic Federation has postponed all sports in the Fall semester, making the high school sports season to start as early as December 2020.

There will be no Week Zero games or even a bye week, since the Week 10 dates for football are set for Friday, March 12, 2021. First day of allowed practice is Monday, December 14, 2020, and the end of sit-out period date for transfer student athletes is Monday, February 8, 2021.
Notable moves for other sports are as follows...
Boys and girls basketball will now start in March as part of the Spring semester, with CIF finals scheduled to be for the month of June 2021. Boys volleyball will now be part of the Fall semester alongside girls volleyball, with girls volleyball still hosting CIF State championship matches, with the boys only going as far as a CIF Southern California Regional championships as usual. Also, for the first time ever, there will be CIF Regional playoffs for baseball and softball, with the Regional championships set for Saturday, June 26, 2021.
According to the CIF, "each CIF section office will release their own calendar to reflect regular season starting and ending dates and section playoffs. It is anticipated that most section start dates will commence in December 2020 or January 2021."
