California’s Southern Section to Hold Swimming and Diving Championships in May


The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF)’s Southern Section announced on Wednesday that the Orange County Department of Public Health gave its approval to hold the Section’s Swimming and Diving Championships for the 2020-21 school year.

The Southern Section comprises most of the public and private high schools in Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, and central and southern Santa Barbara counties. [Note: There is a separate section called CIF Los Angeles City Section for teams from the public schools that make up the vast Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).]

The 2021 Swimming Championships will take place on Tuesday, May 27 (Division 2), Thursday, May 29 (Division 1), and Saturday, May 31 (Divisions 4 morning, Division 3 afternoon) at the Marguerite Aquatics Center in Mission Viejo. The top 16 times in each event, plus two alternate swimmers, will qualify for their respective division championships and the events will be swum as timed finals.

Diving will take place a week earlier, on Thursday and Friday, May 20 and 21, at the Marguerite Aquatics Center. Qualifying standards for divers are found on the CIF-SS website.

No spectators will be allowed but both the diving and the swimming meets will be livestreamed.

CIF Southern Section requires that the host site for playoffs and championships “adhere to the COVID-19 protocols of the California Department of Public Health and/or local departments of public health, whichever is more restrictive, when hosting a Southern Section playoff contest.”
