2020/2021 NCAA Rule Changes


The NCAA has released its rules changes for 2020/2021. These are also the rules that the WCLA (college club) use for their games.


2019-2020 - CIF Playoffs


CIF Southern Section Bluebook Bylaw 3300.2 states the following:

No playoffs will be conducted by the CIF Southern Section Office when less than 20% of the membership field teams in that sport.

Many schools have called and asked if this bylaw threshold had been met for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. We are pleased to announce that 20% of the membership is now participating in these sports and the section will be holding playoffs in those playoffs.

We are currently forming an advisory committee for these sports and will be working on the number of divisions based on our participation rates. Schools are encouraged to look to their natural leagues and conferences in forming the necessary viable leagues. If that is not possible cross-leaguing is encouraged for those leagues short of the minimum standard of four (4) teams. Otherwise, schools not in current leagues will need to be prepared to participate as Freelance schools.

We are currently working on various aspects necessary to launch this sport as a playoff sport and will have more information (playoff dates, number of divisions, finals locations, official ball, officials' assignments, etc.) as we get closer to the start of the new calendar year.

Please plan your schedules to include a maximum of 20 games, including three (3) allowable tournaments with each counting as two games against your allowable 20, with the date of first allowable contest being February 15 and the last allowable league contest to be May 1.

We are excited and eagerly anticipating this new role handling championships in this exciting sport and will be very much hoping for your support in helping us to launch it.
