Big Meet Tomorrow @CIF-SS :shock: Let us see where this actually goes..... the 71% whom say they want a change get a concession or does the $$$ now being and potentially being/going to be made by PRIMETIME football win out? There is no question now money inflow to schools and CIF will be a hard sell to put a lid on or reign in.
Fryer: CIF-SS committee will look at potential changes to transfer rules
Transfer Rules Committee has its first meeting Wednesday
"Transfer rules are going to change.
The process begins Wednesday.
The CIF-Southern section, the governing body of high school athletics in Orange County and much of Southern California, has created a Transfer Rules Committee that has its first meeting Wednesday morning. Committee members will represent the nine CIF-SS areas – the Orange County Area, the Desert Area, etc.
The formation of the committee is one result of a survey conducted by the CIF-SS office of its member schools. The survey, completed and returned to the CIF-SS office by 540 of the section’s 566 member schools, found that 71 percent of the schools want changes to transfer rules. The Transfer Rules Committee will be charged with what sort of changes could come.
One change to how transfers acquire eligibility came into play on Jan. 1 – a standardized checklist to verify change of residence for transfer eligibility. It used to be that a change of residence, required for immediate eligibility at School B when a student-athlete transfers there from School A, could be verified through different ways – a rental contract would be good enough, or a utility bill could suffice. More verification now is required.
“You know how hard it is to move?” asked CIF-SS commissioner Rob Wigod. “Some parents were telling us they were able to make a complete move in 24 hours. And we’re saying, ‘no, it really doesn’t work that way.’ ”
The first Transfer Rules Committee meeting precedes the CIF-SS Council meeting Wednesday. The Council is the CIF-SS legislative body. Each school year the Council has three meetings at which the CIF-SS constitution and by-laws are created and amended."
