2020 SAN DIEGO CHRISTIAN COLLEGE ATHLETICS

AZUSA – While California high schools and community colleges remain in limbo when it comes to athletics, NAIA colleges are turning the switch on as the Golden State Athletic Conference announced its fall sports schedules – all being played in the spring due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

To deal with the virus situation, GSAC placed its 10 member schools into two divisions — GSAC calls them “pods” — with six schools playing a traditional round-robin schedule, while the other four member school play partake each other three times in men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball.

 

Locally, San Diego Christian College has officially been was placed in the 6-team grouping, consisting of The Master’s, Life Bible, Arizona Christian, Ottawa University-Arizona and William Jessup University (10 total basketball games); the other pod features Vanguard, Menlo, Hope International (Fullerton) and Westmont (9 games).

 

To reduce travel and better avoid COVID-19, most games in each 2-game series against any given opponent will be played at one site over consecutive days (Friday and Saturday for basketball; Tuesday and Wednesday for women’s volleyball; Wednesday and Thursday for soccer) in most cases.

 

There is also an open period following the conference slate for any needed make-up contests due to cancellations because of COVID prior to the start of the playoffs.

 

The basketball and soccer schedules all feature doubleheaders among the women’s and men’s teams.
