CIF reduces Coordinating Council membership

The CIF Coordinating Council is an advisory group to the CIF Board of Managers. In the past, the Coordinating Council has included representatives from each league of the CIF San Diego Section, and the current structure of 21 leagues created a Coordinating Council with 48 members during 2015-16.

The Board of Managers addressed the large membership of the Coordinating Council, and a May 25 modification changed the structure so that the Coordinating Council now consists of three representatives from each of the eight conferences rather than two representatives from each league.

The Coordinating Council restructuring also eliminated the representatives from coaches of boys sports and from coaches of girls sports while adding one representative for activities directors or associated student body advisors.

The change reduces the number of Coordinating Council members from 48 to 29.

"We think it will be a better group," said CIF commissioner Jerry Schniepp.

Each conference will elect two representatives and will also have a conference president representative. Each of those 24 conference representatives will have one vote apiece on the Coordinating Council as will the activities directors and associated student body advisors representative, the school boards representative, and the two at-large representatives. The representative of the officials associations is also on the board as a non-voting member, and that was unchanged.

The North County Conference covers the Avocado East, Avocado West, Palomar, and Valley leagues. The City Conference has the Central, City, Eastern, and Western leagues. The Coastal Conference is divided into the Coastal, Ocean, and Pacific leagues. The Frontier Conference is comprised of the Apollo and Frontier leagues. The Grossmont Conference consists of the Grossmont Hills and Grossmont Valley leagues. The Metropolitan Conference has the Mesa, Pacific, and South Bay leagues. The only Southeastern Conference league is the Imperial Valley League. The Southern Conference consists of the Citrus and Manzanita leagues.

The May 25 action also created a Leaguing Committee, which will review all issues related to league placement. The Leaguing Committee will make recommendations to the Coordinating Council and will be comprised of one representative from each conference.
