Laguna families are in for a surprise next year with the new Southern Section CIF sports calendar.
The high school sports season has been moved back, beginning next season as adopted by CIF.
Below is the sports calendar from 2012-13, which is the last time Labor Day was on Sept. 3, compared to next fall’s calendar, which also has a Sept. 3 Labor Day.
Winter sports for all levels start regular season play well before the Thanksgiving break while spring sports start before Laguna’s ski week, not after as in recent years.
Next year’s sport schedules at Laguna Beach High School have not been finalized.
Many long-standing, in-season tournaments have moved from their traditional dates to accommodate the new calendar.
