High school football participation rates in California have declined, according to the 2016 California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Sports Participation Survey.
While football continues to lead the top 10 boys’ sports in that state with 100,205 participants. That number represents a decrease by 3.39% (3,520 participants), for the first time since 2013.
The CIF’s 1,581 member schools participated in the survey as part of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) nationwide survey that measures the number of students competing in sports in the country.
