"The new transfer rule will make transferring student-athletes ineligible for one year in any sport played during the previous year at their previous school — unless that student-athlete’s situation fits one of the current 15 exceptions that allow for immediate eligibility."

What about a family that can't afford tuition at a Parochial school? The student is being "punished" because of a financial issue with the family?

You are so right Big_Red.  I know from personal experience.  Dealing with that as we speak.  So, even though, we pay taxes for the district we are in my kid can't play "his" sport there and we have no option but to transfer because of increase in tuition with his current private school.  Pretty frustrating that the kid is punished for this.

IMHO, if a kid transfers from a private school to their PSOR (public school of residence) for financial reasons, immediate eligibility should be allowed.

That would be something to pose to the local Athletic Director for him/her to take to the Representative Council, unless a "financial hardship waiver" already exists.  A "financial hardship" would be the only method to prove a transfer from a tuition based school to a non-tuition based school wasn't athletically motivated.  Otherwise, this is an area that could easily be manipulated, such as with the QB who transferred from Country Day to Cass Tech for 2017.

I know of a scenario where a student's family purposely stopped paying on a car, so that it would be reopossessed. They used that as a claim for financial hardship.  Then after the transfer went through bought a new house.
