New Eligibility Question

Player B transferred last winter as an open enrollment student to a new public school this fall. He is a multiple sport athlete and plays golf and soccer. Obviously because of the start dates golf begins earlier and can reach the halfway point quicker. By this reaching the halfway point quicker making him eligible for golf does this effect the start date for soccer. He would still have to sit the first 8 games correct? Remember I am asking about a player who transferred before the May referendum which has changed the rules now.

My understanding is he would have to sit out the first 50% of contests in each sport (or last 50% of contests plus tournament if after May's rule change). I don't think the fact that one sport reaches the 50% point quicker has any bearing on the other.

For any sport that the transfer player played at his previous school he must sit 50% of the season for each sport. Which 50% (first half or second) of the season is determined by the enrollment date at the new school.

Unless this just recently changed, that was not my daughter's experience. She transferred open enrollment form one school district to an adjacent school district, she was a swimmer and a softball player. Sat out half the swimming season but played a full softball season.

This is not new- if you played a sport at one school then play at the new school then you have to sit 50% of games/contests of each sport you played at old school. They did this to prevent circumstances such as a basketball player coming in and joining the tennis team and sitting half of that season then being eligible for basketball. Iím not sure of your daughters exact circumstances but the previous transfer rules were in place for a full year after the switch unless exempted.
