The CIF state Federated Council will vote Friday on a proposal that would dramatically change transfer rules across California. On Wednesday, leagues in the state’s most powerful section, the CIF-Southern Section, voted 63-12-1 in favor of the proposal that would eliminate the power of all section commissioners to declare student-athletes ineligible when transferring for sports reasons.
Under the proposal that will be voted-on on Friday, athletes and their parents could openly state that they are transferring for athletic reasons and a commissioner won’t declare them ineligible. After a mandatory sit-out period, the athlete would be allowed to play for his new school.
The LA City Section also supports the proposal.
