High school athletes in the Long Beach Unified School District who transfer within the district without moving will have to sit out one year of varsity competition in a decision made by the school board on Tuesday night.

According to the Long Beach Press-Telegram, the vote was 4-1 in favor of the new rule that will be stricter than the state CIF rule that requires athletes to sit out a little more than a month for transferring without moving.

There will be an appeals process.
