The rules seem to change every year, and my experiences are limited to San Diego Section -- I remember players who participated in HS tryouts and practices but not games until after their club team had completed some December tournaments.Officially the end of November, after Thanksgiving cup tournaments is the end of the club and the beginning of High School. Unless your team or player is participating in National League which is the first weekend in December, or in playoffs which can go into December for some leagues as well on the national level. Most high school coaches start heavy practices in October and that double practice time can be tough on the girls. If a player wants to remain CIF eligible they CANNOT play in a registered high school game or pre-season game while still playing in a club, so they have to not attend any high school games until their club season is over, or else they can lose their CIF eligibility ( meaning they cannot play in any high school games). High school coaches have the option to register 3 preseason games so while your coach may not register the game, the opposing coach may and that action can put your club player in jeopardy if she plays. Last year we had 2-3 girls on our high school team that did not start High school games until mid-Dec and one in January due to club commitments. This is hard on the High school team, but these girls were playing for college spots.
What section(d) are you referring to?HS season officially starts on November 18th this year.
HS games normally don't start until first Monday after Thanksgiving. HS scrimmages will happen before Thanksgiving.
In southern section, basketball is winter season so can't be done with soccer, but cross country is in the fall so your DD can do that and then move to soccer on the winter.Any issues playing a different sport such as cross country or basketball concurrently with soccer?
San Diego Section, some years ago - We had a boy who played on the HS soccer team in the same season that he was on the HS wrestling team. The two coaches came to an agreement on his time, which heavily favored the wrestling team after he made the A squad all the way to State Finals. He showed up for soccer practice and games as his wrestling schedule permitted, and was the team's backup keeper when he was at a game.
Ah I see from the sports calendar says first contest is Nov 16CIF-SS section
It’s not prohibited by CIF but logistically nearly impossible. That said, I do know a girl who played soccer and hoops in NCS (East Bay Area, some of Marin/Sonoma counties and some of solano county) in her freshman year. I think her HS’s league played Tues/Thurs for soccer and Wed/Fri for basketball (I’m not certain as she plays in a different league than my kid (they play club soccer together)).
There's no prohibition but I agree that the logistics make it a bit difficult. Huntington Beach recently had a varsity goalkeeper who also played varsity basketball. I was an AR for a 5 pm Sunset League varsity girls soccer game that went to overtime and as soon as the game was decided by a "golden goal" she went off to the nearby gym to play in the varsity basketball game between the two schools.
