For many weeks NOR has been closely monitoring the ongoing discussions and proposed directions regarding the re-opening of schools and the resumption of organized sports for the fall. With the announcement by the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) to postpone fall athletics and many local school districts deciding to begin the school year with a distance learning model in place, NOR has made the decision to cancel the Fall 2020 Afterschool Sports programs. Re-evaluation on winter and spring sports will be made later in the fall, when a clearer picture begins to emerge of a sustained reopening of the County.
While we were hopeful to be able to resume this program as soon as this fall, we know that a return to athletics can only occur when it is safe to do so. That decision that will be directed by the State of California and guided by our local Department of Public Health.
Please know we are as disappointed as you are, and our staff is working diligently to be ready to offer our sports programs with any necessary modifications in place once the green light is given to resume. Updated information on all NOR programs and facilities will continue to be provided on our website at norfun.org. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of this pandemic together.
