About CIF Southern Section
The California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section, is a nonprofit corporation organized to direct and control both boys’ and girls’ athletics in the secondary schools within the Section. The Southern Section is administered on a day-to-day basis by the Commissioner, five Assistant Commissioners, a CFO, a marketing manager and a staff of eight support personnel. The Southern Section is not only the oldest, but the largest of 10 such sections in the state--its membership has grown from an original 30 schools to over 585 schools and from 5 leagues to almost 89 leagues.
Interscholastic athletics for both boys and girls in the Southern Section are considered to be an integral segment of the total educational program. It goes without saying that sports should supplement, rather than serve as a substitute for the traditional physical education and intramural programs in our member schools.
