Summer Schedules

This page is here to provide some general information regarding our summer schedules! 

Per CIF Rules, Coaches are not allowed to communicate with incoming, enrolled families regarding their programs and schedules until AFTER May 1st going into the fall that they are enrolling for. If you email a coach prior to May 1st and they do not respond, or you get a response from the Athletic Director instead, it is due to this rule. 

Start of Summer 
With our graduation date being Friday, June 2nd, our Summer officially begins on Saturday, June 3rd. The EARLIEST that an incoming student can begin participating in practices or workouts with their new school is when BOTH their current school AND their new school have finished their current school year. So, if you are an incoming freshman this upcoming fall, both your 8th grade school year and our current school year have to be finished before you can begin to attend practices. That said, the earliest date any new student can begin to attend workouts at Bishop is Saturday, June 4th. 

Dead Period
Each year, CIF requires that each school take a “Dead Period”, which is a period of 14 consecutive days where the school must shut down all athletic activities, including strength and conditioning. Our Dead Period this summer is from Monday, June 26th through Sunday, July 9th. 

Athletic Clearance
Please plan to complete all of your Athletic Clearance and Sports Physicals during the summer months so that they are completed for the entire school year. Please visit this link ( for more information.
