If a school voluntarily moves up in Class should you be able to transfer immediately?

    I know that this isn't answering your question. But as someone who supports kids the ability to transfer for any reason they want I would say YES.

    But it will never happen because KHSAA rules are only designed for what is best for schools and coaches.

    I think you should be able to transfer freely as well. But if transfers aren't allowed, re-classification isn't enough of a reason to allow it. JMO.

    If the "primary goal of the football" team is a state title then your logic says every kid at 98% of the schools in the state should be able to transfer regardless of what class their school participates.

    I have no idea how you came to that conclusion.

    This is basic logic, it is an "if then" statement.

    In other words, school districts own kids...

    What do you call the “primary goal of football?”

    The thread is about what rights a student/family should have when a school purposely makes it more difficult to be successful.

    In order for the KHSAA to make a change there has to be harm to a player. What is the harm ?

    No. People don’t want to discuss classes for other sports but what to allow kids to transfer because they move up in classes. Most of the schools play schools that are in classes above them anyway during the season.

    So, by giving them the opportunity to transfer in this situation, we’re telling them it’s OK to run away when things get a little tougher?

    TEAM being the key word. No you should not to answer your question. Thats part of the problem in the world, if things dont go your way take your ball and leave. Teaching kids wrong lessons.

    No. Why would a school choose to move up to get their brains bashed in every week? Think teams typically only move up if they think they can compete at the higher level. So I'm not seeing where a player is being forced into any unfair situations.
    So should kids be able to transfer if they feel their school team isn't going to be good in a certain season? Jut go to the school where you think you can win?

    Harm is subjective and to my larger point if the school makes a change I believe the student/family should be able to make a change.
