Summer Extended Athletic Plan

2020-2021 Athletics 

There will only be a fall and spring season for athletics this year. The Fall Athletic season has been postponed until December 14 and the spring seasons will have various start dates based on the sport in 2021. In the meantime, we are moving ahead with Summer Extended Athletic Cohorts which will begin on Monday, September 14th. The purpose of these 3-week cohorts is to safely allow students to work out and condition with their teams.


Our hope is to give each athlete (who wants to),  the opportunity to condition and “practice” in up to 15 person sports-specific cohorts. We are creating safe practice guidelines based on rules and best practices developed by the County of Marin, the State of California, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), and the Centers For Disease Control (CDC). 

Student-athletes are allowed to choose one session from each cohort (White/Black/Red). If you choose to commit to San Rafael's 3-week cohort, you will not be allowed to participate in any other activity outside of your own cohort, including other extracurricular San Rafael cohorts or outside teams. For example, if you play with a club team, you will not be allowed to participate in any San Rafael Athletics cohorts during that period.
