City Section IAC votes to support revision in CIF transfer rules

March 26, 2012 |  2:49 pm

The City Section Interscholastic Athletic Committee has become one of the first sections in the state to endorse a proposal to revise CIF transfer rules.

The committee voted to instruct its delegation to the state Federated Council meeting in May to support proposal No. 1 from bylaw 206, which would give students more options in choosing public schools after moving. They won't be restricted to just choosing the public school in their attendance boundary but can also can pick a school within the district if there's open enrollment.

The committee also supported revisions in bylaws 207, 208 and 510 that would implement a "sit out period" when students transfer without moving. Instead of sitting out one year, it will be close to 30 days, with students becoming eligible on three specific days during the year depending on their sports seasons: Oct. 1, 2012; Dec. 31, 2012, and April 1, 2013.

The committee supported implementation of a new Open Division for the state basketball playoffs.

The City Section controls 11 votes at the state Federated Council meeting. There are 10 sections in the state that have votes at the meeting.
