: : : : Question, what is the rule/s on a high school athlete who plays on an AAU club team and decides to transfer to play for his club coach at a local high school?
: : : Depends on if the previous school cares, If he played varsity then 30 day sit out, if the school challenges undue influence by the coach then it could be a full year sit out.
: Actually, the rule is very clear. You cannot follow your club coach or any club asst coach on that staff to the high school they currently coach at. It is an automatic loss of Varsity eligibility for 1 calendar year. Even if you move residences, the rule is very clear.
: : The SOP is automatic regardless if he played varsity or played freshman. Level is irrelevant. If there is a valid change of residence, then there is no SOP.
: : If the kid transfers and is playing for his AAU coach at the new school, I believe it's a 1 year sit out.
But the truth is as long as you dont go telling everyone at the school you are leaving then you wont have to worry about it.
