Summer Schedules 2024

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, May 31st, our Summer officially begins on Saturday, June 1st. 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 1st. 

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, July 1st through Sunday, July 14th. 

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.

Summer Schedules are in the process of being updated. Check back soon if the information for your sport has not yet been updated.


Boys Basketball
The Boys Basketball program will be practicing Mondays on campus from 6:00 - 8:00 PM, starting on June 3rd through July 24th (with the exception of the two weeks during the Dead Period). In addition, the Varsity team will be competing in the Summer League on campus on Wednesday nights. The JV team will also compete in the Dos Pueblos Summer League, with games on Tuesday and/or Thursday nights. More info about both summer leagues will be sent out by Coach James Coronado as the summer approaches.

The Girls Basketball program will be practicing Mondays and Tuesdays on campus from 3:00-5:00 and Fridays from 1:00-2:00 beginning Monday, June 3 through Friday, June 28. Please contact Coach Jeff Burich if you have any questions!

The Cheer program will hold 3 days of practices in June: Monday, June 10th, Tuesday, June 11th and Wednesday, June 12th from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM. Uniform orders will need to be placed by Wednesday, June 12th in order to be delivered by our first football game! Then practices will resume starting Tuesday, July 16th and will go Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM on campus through the rest of the summer. There is also Cheer Camp from July 25th-28th. Please contact Coach Tiffany Rochel if you have any questions!

Cross Country

Football begins summer practices on Monday, June 3 and generally will go on weekdays until the season starts (except for a couple weekend events for varsity players and except for the dead period described above).

Typically, the JV team will start daily at 3:00 PM in the weight room and will transition to the field around 4:00 PM, where practices will go through 5:30 PM.  Again, students new to Bishop must have completed their current school year prior to participating in practices.

The Varsity team will practice at 2:00 PM on Monday and Friday starting in the weight room and ending on the field approximately 5:30 PM. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the team will be in the Weight Room from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM then return to the field at 3:00 PM for practice until approximately 5:30 PM. On Wednesdays, the team will either arrive at 2:00 PM for film/classroom sessions or 3:00 PM for practice.

Also during the summer, the JV and/or Varsity teams will compete versus local high schools in 7on7 competitions from time to time in lieu of field practices described above. This schedule will be sent to all families participating in football as the summer gets closer.

Football players should attend practices daily in workout attire, with both tennis shoes (for the weight room), cleats (for field practice), and any other equipment needed. 

A “Team Shop” will open towards the end of May where players/families/friends can purchase team workout gear and Bishop football attire.  Notice of the Shop will be sent to registered families in May.
