Dead Period Update

By February 20, 2020 All Athletics

A Note From The Athletic Director…


Linfield Christian High School is a member of the CIF Southern Section, a statewide organization that provides governance for all high school sports. CIF mandates that each sport declare a time period known as a “Summer Dead Period.” In the past, each sport was required to take three consecutive weeks off during the summer, where no practice or conditioning can take place. Teams were only allowed to weightlift during this time.

CIF just passed a new bylaw regarding the Summer Dead Period that will go into effect this summer. The Summer Dead Period is now required to be 14 consecutive days, and it must be the same 14 consecutive days for all sports programs at the high school. Practices, conditioning, and now weightlifting are prohibited during the 14 consecutive day Summer Dead Period. No sports activity whatsoever.

Athletics has selected June 22nd – July 5th, 2020 as our Summer Dead Period for the upcoming summer. Sports practices can resume on July 6th.

We are working with our coaches to get summer calendars put together, but we wanted to inform you now of the new Summer Dead Period ruling in case you are planning your summer vacations in advance.

If you have any specific questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.

Thank you,

Waheed Mitchell
