When a student begins his/her high school career and changes to a different school, that student is considered a “transfer student.”
Per CHSAA (link to CHSAA transfer info to come). Any time a student changes schools after starting high school, that student
becomes ineligible at the varsity level of competition until the information required below has been completed and submitted
to both the previous and current school. Student is only allowed JV eligibility until CHSAA has determined final eligibility after
a review by the school’s league members.
Regardless of the type of transfer, there is paperwork (forms and documentation) that the student and his/her parents/legal guardians
will have to complete. It is the parent and student’s responsibility to provide accurate and truthful information (per CHSAA Bylaw 1800.74).
Unethical behavior, recruiting and cheating hurts everyone.
