By Ray Hamill — The Corsairs will be hoping for some good news on Friday, when the California Community College Athletic Association meets to discuss the upcoming sports calendar.

A final decision on the calendar is not necessarily expected this week.

In July the CCCAA approved a two-season format for the sports calendar, which is tentatively set to begin in the new year, with football, basketball, soccer, women’s volleyball and cross country first to go, followed by baseball, softball and track and field (among others).

Among the issues the CCCAA is expected to discuss is whether to go ahead with the current contingency plan or to modify it in some way, possibly limiting competition to 70 percent, implementing a conference-only schedule, eliminating postseason competition, or moving sports around.

Sport like football or basketball, which involve a lot of close contact, could be pushed back to the spring.
