LA City Section almost “in the 21st Century” with Saturday practices

City Section on verge of approving Saturday practices

The City Section is considering a proposal to allow Saturday practices, something long overdue. The Southern Section has allowed Saturday practices for years.

A vote could come in June at the City Interscholastic Athletic Committee if several concerns are addressed. Some coaches have complained that teams would be put at a disadvantage because of transportation issues. But allowing practices on Saturday would let the City Section enter the 21st Century.

Football teams show up on Saturdays to go over video. Cross-country and track athletes are always running on Saturdays.
