Youth & Adult Sports

On March 4, 2021, the State released new guidance allowing sports to resume in counties with COVID case rates at or below 14 per 100,000. Ventura County has met this benchmark. 

Youth & adult sports are now allowed to resume, as long as State guidance is STRICTLY followed. The State's safety guidance connected with youth and adult sports is available on the California Department of Public Health website.
