Once you've played a game in a sport, you can NOT play for another school in that same sport.  Now, if it's 8th grade, you can possibly get by with it because it's really not considered high school and the AAA rules govern high school teams.

Well, actually you can, but you would have to appeal it to the AAA. There have been numerous cases of moving during a season and playing for two teams.

As with all AAA 'rules' they come with wide interpretation.

The AAA continues to prove how stupid they are. So hypothetically by this rule an 11th grader has a dad or mom that gets a job going from 50K to 70K a year let's say in late November and their kid plays basketball and they move from let's say Little Rock to NWA then you punish the kid and not allow him to play the rest of the 20 or so games for another team all because as a family they made a positive life decision! What a great rule.........Not.

beach bum, put this up against the other side of the spectrum, dad really only cares about how son does in basketball/football and realizes team he is on now isn't going to do anything, so he moves son to another district in the middle of the season so he can be on a winning program.

No rule is going to be perfect. The one set in place I believe is the one that will get taken advantage of the least. Of course there are exceptions that the AAA will make so really I do not think anyone really gets in a pickle here.

My scenario actually happens all the time though...

Just home school your kids now... Then they can play for any school they want.

I can think of multiple instances where the scenario above happened with the pretext of "I'm just moving my student for academic or personal reasons."

Don't have proof other than circumstantial in these cases, but the rule is there for that reason.

What if you live out of state, but a parent works for the school and you play varsity ball until your sophomore year then you transfer back to your home state (where your residence is) and play ball there until the school where your parent works hires a new coach and then you transfer back your Sr year and are automatically eligible?
