All playoff ball adoptions agreements with the CIF-SS run through June 30, 2021 except for Tennis (06/2017) Mandatory Playoff Use Requirement The Mandatory “official” ball rule for all playoff rounds, excluding golf.  The rule applies throughout the conduct of all CIF-SS playoff contests. Playoff Ball Use Rule Enforcement: Should a school fail to provide the correct game ball, the game will always be played.  Teams/schools failing to utilize the correct official ball in the CIF-SS playoffs will be reported by officials to CIF-SS and will not be allowed to host their next available home playoff game.  Penalty does carry over to the next season if not enforceable this season due to elimination.
