Important Athletic Notice

The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) / Sac-Joaquin Section (SJS) recently announced the changes that will be made to the 2020-21 sport calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This new sport calendar was developed by the Section Commissioners and the State CIF Office as well as with input from Coaches, Athletic Directors and School Administrators.  

All sports were divided into two seasons of play (Season #1 and Season #2) instead of the standard three seasons of play (fall, winter, and spring). The breakdown is as follows: 

Season #1 includes the following sports: cross country (men and women), volleyball (men and women), water polo (men and women), D7 Soccer (men and women), and football.  Season #1 will have the following start dates for official tryouts:

12/07/2020 – Football, Cross County
12/14/2020 – Volleyball, Water Polo, Soccer (LGA) 

Season #2 includes the following sports: baseball, basketball (men and women), golf (men and women), soccer (men and women), softball, swimming/diving (men and women), tennis (men and women, coed), track and field (men and women), wrestling (men and women).  Season #2 will have the following start dates for official tryouts:

02/01/2021 – Golf, Tennis
02/22/2021 – Basketball, Soccer, Wrestling, Coed Tennis (NHS)
03/08/2021 – Swimming/Diving, Baseball, Softball
03/15/20201– Track and Field

It is understood that this set-up is not ideal for multi-sport athletes, it does allow full seasons of sport with minimal crossover between the two seasons of sport. We will work closely between our multi-sporters to alleviate as much stress as possible. Facility issues were also considered by the CIF in order to avoid the cancellation of specific levels of sport or programs. This is only a one year adjustment due to the pandemic and we will return to a normal, three season sports season (fall, winter, spring) the following year.

Athletic Directors/Coaching Staff will adjust their game schedules, practice schedules, and training regimens to best prepare the student-athletes for this adaptation of the schedule. For Conditioning this fall please refer to our ‘Phased Return to Athletics’ plan for each site.

Looking forward to seeing our student-athletes in action!

Welcome to Natomas Unified School District Athletics! We offer a variety of sports at our schools that support preparing student-athletes to graduate college and career ready, and to be productive, responsible, and engaged global citizens. We believe extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on students and play a key component in not only developing life skills but building self-esteem, establishing friendships, promoting self-discipline, and building character. Athletics are offered to students beginning in elementary school (4th-grade) and vary by school and season. All students must maintain a 2.0 or above, have a completed sports packet (with physical), and attend all practices/games after tryouts. We encourage you to explore this webpage and also the Parent University webpage to learn more about how to become a student-athlete, what it takes to play at the collegiate level, and athletic programs offered in Natomas Unified.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.” – Nelson Mandela
