In his latest commissioner’s message, Rob Wigod of the Southern Section asks, “Is it time for us to have a conversation?”
State associations in Ohio, Michigan and Colorado recently passed stricter controls over transfers. In California, the opposite has been taking place. The CIF, fearing rising legal costs, has been liberalizing transfer rules.
Wigod accurately states, “I don’t think there is any question that principals, athletic directors and coaches have expressed a preference for stricter transfer rules, and parents would prefer that we didn’t have any transfer restrictions at all.”
