STUDENT TRANSFERS - HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY
With the adoption of the new PWCS Regulation 721-2, changes have been added that impact a student’s Virginia High School League eligibility for participation in interscholastic sports at the high school level. Briefly stated, the following excerpts from Regulation 721-2 describe possible impact if a student transfers from one school to another:
· Once a student establishes eligibility in a high school, any additional transfer requests for designated site programs shall not be considered for a waiver and the student shall be ineligible for 365 days from the date of the transfer.
· Students who enter the ninth grade through residence or acceptance into a designated site program will establish Virginia High School League (VHSL) eligibility at the school.
· Once a student establishes eligibility at a high school and the student transfers to another high school for any reason, the student shall be ineligible for 365 days unless there is a corresponding change of address in accordance with the VHSL
