Club soccer get kicked in the rear by California Intersch...

California’s club soccer programs – specifically girls and boys U14, U15, U16, U17 and U18 teams – are about to get kicked to the curb by the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). It seems CIF has had it with players doing double duty on high school and club teams during soccer season. They want to end this practice and force kids into playing for their high school teams only during soccer season.

California Interscholastic Federation - Watchdog Site

Welcome to CIF Watchdog! Thank you for visiting. This site (http://cifwatchdo g.wordpress.com) has been created to provide student-athletes, parents, coaches, administrators and the general public with a broad view of how the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) truly operates when it comes to applying its own rules. Beware! CIF is not your friend. The organization is wrought with problems and while claiming fairness in application of its rules, its record shows it has a long way to go before it realizes its goal. Athletes, parents, coaches, administrators need to be wary when dealing with this organization. CIF desperately needs oversight and transparency in its operation. It doesn’t have it now, but through through the involvement of parents, school administrations, the general public and the State Legislature change will be brought about. Change that will restore respect to the organization, an organization that today, truth be told, has little when it comes to the way it conducts business.

Lies, Damned Lies and CIF Statistics

We all know how important the use of statistics can be to winning an argument or swaying public opinion. We also know politicians have become experts at creating and using statistics on the fly with little worry of backlash given the public’s limited appetite to question or do the research required to validate. Politicians prey on laziness and ignorance. Apparently, CIF officials know this all to well and have no problem invoking the same strategy when it comes to getting what they want. Especially when that something is winning an appeals case or making CIF and its commissioners look good in the eyes of peers, the press, CIF members, parents, the public and, most importantly, the legal system.

CIF San Diego Section on the hot seat

The story being told in San Diego is eerily similar to many stories around the state. With little to no oversight, CIF commissioners feel free to dispense “fairness” and enforce of CIF rules as they see fit. Some schools get a pass on violations (or a slap on the wrist), some do not. Some players get a pass, some do not. Preferential treatment rules the day. Clearly, people are fed up with CIF and want change.
