• SVHS ATHLETICS 2020-21 (currently on hold)

    North Coast Section (NCS) has given each league the ability to set their seasons of sports based on the color tier that their county resides in and the sports allowed in that tier. The Vine Valley Athletic League (VVAL) has developed two seasons of sports. The proposed schedule still needs approval from NCS, Districts, and Principals. No competition or official practice may begin prior to February 1, 2021. In addition, student athletes, because of the guidelines from CDPH, can only participate in one cohort (sport) at a time, this includes conditioning. Reminder - no sport can begin until the CDPH Stay at Home Order has been lifted. 
    Proposed VVAL Season 1 schedule - February 8, 2021 to April 17, 2021.  The schedule would include Cross Country, Boys and Girls Golf, Boys and Girls Swimming, Boys and Girls Tennis (Purple Tier sports) and Football an Orange Tier Sport. We understand that Football is in the Orange Tier, however, with the football season being required to end on April 17th, it is included in Season 1. Schedule is dependent on CDPH Stay at Home Order being lifted. No sport can begin until the CDPH Stay at Home Order has been lifted. 
    Proposed VVAL Season 2 schedule - April 12, 2021 to June 12, 2021. The schedule includes Track & Field (Purple tier), Baseball, Softball (Red tier) Boys & Girls Soccer, Volleyball, Boys and Girls Water Polo, (Orange tier) Boys and Girls Basketball, Wrestling (Yellow tier).
    Sports Tier Level:
    PURPLE: Cross-Country, Golf, Tennis, Track & Field, Swimming and Diving 
    RED: Baseball, Softball, Girls Lacrosse, Field Hockey 
    ORANGE: Football, Boys Lacrosse, Soccer, Volleyball, Water Polo, Badminton, Volleyball 
    YELLOW: Competitive Cheerleading, Basketball, Wrestling
