Previous Interaction between a Transferring Student and New School Personnel

A student who transfers to a TAPPS member school shall not be eligible for Varsity competition in a sport for a period of one year if:

  1. a coach in that sport at the new school coached or trained the student at the previous school during the previous 12 months.
  2. a coach in that sport at the new school coached or trained the student on an AAU, select, club, 7 on 7  or similar team during the previous 12 months.
  3. a coach at the new school provided individual or group instruction to the student during the previous 12 months.
  4. a coach at the new school provided skills training, fitness training, personal training or other such training to the student during the previous 12 months.

Exceptions to this rule would include:

  1. Adopted or birth children are eligible if their parent who is the coach changes schools.
  2. If the previous school attended by the student and coach has closed, the above rule does not apply.
  3. Camps as defined in Section 1 of the TAPPS Bylaws, hosted by a member school are not subject to this rule.

Removal of the coach by the new school after the student contact with the school does not provide relief from this section.
