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

Page 3 of I say yes. If any high school voluntarily moves up in class, which clearly makes it harder for them to achieve their primary goal, I believe any footba... 69 comments | 3897 Views | Go to page 1 →

    No, again, if the school makes a change why shouldn't a student be able to make a change?

    When the decision the school makes "harms" the team I don't know what lesson we would be teaching an innocent child by making them stay.

    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?
    We have three examples of this in NKY, that is, schools that moved up into a class where they had zero chance to compete, and in those cases I think the kids should have a choice too.

    Lol. Neither.
    I don’t see why they would get to transfer because they might be playing tougher competition.

    I think if you went to a school that was a state contender, then after you got there the school decided to move up into a class where they couldn't be competitive, the child deserves a chance to make a change too.

    There is a big difference between a power like Highlands moving up from 4A to 5A when their program is on top and any school moving up from 5A to 6A.

    In the case of Highlands, I lean your way, in the case of moving up to 6A football it is way more than just tougher competition.

    Who are the 3 schools who chose to move up that have no chance to compete? Are we talking one season or do you mean these teams are gonna get bashed at the level they are playing always? Curious why any school would move up to get bashed what is the reward or desire to do this for anyone

    It is already on BGP.

    Let me ask you a question @Rap , if you were in charge would you ever move any team up in class to 6A?

    So what if the player is a two/three sport athlete? Can he transfer back to the school to play on the better basketball/baseball team etc...?

    What if you were at an 1A school and wanted to play against better competition should you be able to transfer to a higher class?

    Let's not confuse "transferring at will" with transferring because a school makes a change and goes up in classification to a class they cannot be competitive in.

    Potential injury from playing up in a class. It could potentially be a safety issue that the school would be putting all players in. So yes, they should be allowed to transfer.

    Nobody is being forced to play football. There is always a potential for injury.

    Correct but if i am a jr in the 2019 season, and my school choose to play up a class than what their enrollment indicated, thats putting me at a potentially greater risk than I was before. The school has changed the safety aspeck from what it was before. I should be able to make a change as well.

    So we are talking winning state titles not just competing? If a school feels it belongs in 6A and plays there why not. Just because you have little chance at the state title doesn't mean stay down to me. So if you have no chance to win the state title or in cases your stating a 6A title if voluntarily moved to 6A should you be able to freely transfer . My answer is still no. There is a lot more to it than just we can't beat Trinity in the finals so I've been dealt an unplayable hand and take my ball and helmet and go elsewhere. Nothing wrong with a 14-1 season or the chance at it. Or a 3-8 season if that is what occurs. Now if your goal is to move up and go 0-10 and get bashed weekly just to be in 6A then your school has bigger issues than this.

    What do you think?
    As long as they transfer to CovCath, I'm good with it.

    In all seriousness, I would be doing all I could to get my son out of a situation like this.
