Dennis,

I saw recent tweets by the head coaches for Clayton Valley and Pittsburg touting the start of full, regular summer workouts, with Clayton Valley having started this past Monday, 6/8, and Pittsburg starting on Monday, 6/15.

That said, if certain schools in EBAL are allowed to initiate and conduct full, regular, outdoor team workouts, but others can't, how is CIF and/or NCS going to address that, if at all, since it will obviously create an unfair pre-season training advantage for those teams who can do so, especially with respect to Clayton Valley, which is now in the EBAL?

Just some additional food for thought in uncharted territory.

Not only must NCS and CIF ensure a level playing field, they must also ensure a level pre-season training field for EVERYONE.
