As I have said and written before, our transfer regulation is an inadequate tool for the fight ahead of us.
In the MHSAA Handbook there are 12 high school athletic eligibility regulations covered over 25 pages, and one-fourth of these pages are devoted to one rule: the transfer regulation.
A recent blog (“Troubling Transfers”) brought us several responses where the writer had student-specific issues, to which we do not respond here.
The most troublesome aspect of the transfer regulation is that it does not stop or penalize all transfers that are primarily for athletic reasons.
