There are several exceptions where you can transfer without having to sit out at all. The most common one being moving from one school district to another.

This was voted on 450-224 by member schools. Not a close vote. The OHSAA goal is to limit the number of transfers. The reason being is they feel "a high number of transfers is not good for education-based athletics".

Dan Ross, “Much of the feedback we have received from the membership indicates that the current consequence – sitting out the first half of the regular-season – is not a significant deterrent,” Dan Ross, OHSAA Executive Director, said. “If a student knows that the end of the regular-season and the tournament will still be available, they are more likely to transfer. We don’t believe that a high number of transfers is good for education-based athletics.”
