HIGH SCHOOL AGM:
The Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association has voted to stop transfer students from competing in their old sports at their new school.
The new rule, which is designed to keep schools from stacking their teams and keep current players from being displaced by newcomers, was passed Tuesday at the MHSAA annual general meeting in Russell.
Starting in the 2015-16 school year, student-athletes who transfer schools won’t be able to compete in the sports that they played in the previous school year. The new regulation is in response to concerns some schools could build all-star teams with new recruits, while also hurting the chances of current students making their teams. However, the rule will stop some students from continuing their athletic careers after transfering for academic reasons to take courses not available at their current school.
