Transfer rules

by EagleDad3411 » Sun Dec 17, 2017 6:41 pm

There are rumors swirling in SCISA basketball that a few teams are bringing in players for the second semester. What is the ruling on transfers being eligible? I heard 60 days from the first day of the second semester which would make all basketball transfers ineligible. Is that correct?

I could be wrong, but I think the 60 day rule is from one SCISA school to another SCISA school.

Doc or Godfather would know for sure.

It’s in the Blue Book. 60 days always for SCISA to SCISA. The 60 days can be waived by the Athletic Committee for non-SCISA, but only if transfers take place prior to start of 2nd semester. Then it’s 10 practices. I want to say that’s in there primarily so as not to penalize the kid whose family moves to a new town at mid-year. I doubt very seriously the committee would waive the rule for a local public-to-private transfer.

This goes way back, but long ago (maybe 2006?) Mike Davis, who wound up playing RB for USC, played his HS football at Columbia High. He transferred to Glenforest in spring, and graduated from there. He wasn’t eligible for basketball due to the 60-day rule, but was for track (which is why I remember the story).
