: : Unless he plays varsity he will be ok - sit out rule applies only to varsity level eligibility. If he is a varsity-level player he may be eligible after the first semester. A final thought is that if his new school offers an academic program he wants that wasn’t offered at his previous school , he can claim transfer for academic purposes and become immediately eligible.
: My son didn't play much but he lettered as a freshman, so he would have to observe the sit out period.I am just wondering what happens if we transfer and there is no 20-21 season? would 20-21 count as his sit out or would he have to observe it in 21-22 when he's a junior?
If he does not participate in athletics for a year, which if the season is cancelled that would handle that requirement, then he won't have to sit out the next year.
