Hardship student not be allowed to play sports and I 100% guarantee that there will be dramatic drop in hardship cases brought to the system. I agree 100% with a lot of things you said. I do think there should be some exception tho, I think a hardship transfer should only be allowed to play sports if the svhool he was zone for does not offer that sport and only then should he be allowed to play for the next closest school that has that sport and not be able to pick were he wants to attend school.
The TSSAA must be vigilant in keepong kids to their assigned schools and stopping all this. Some coaches actively recruit we all know this. This loophole must be closed if the TSSAA ever plan on stoping recruiting, some schools use it and others who try to abide by the rules are the only schools being hurt. Now if the was such a rule that OUT OF ZONE hardship transfers not be allowed to play sports,unless the school they were zoned for did not offer that sport was put in effect, this would stop most the recruiting I am sure. COME ON TSSAA STEP UP TO THE PLATE and DO THE RIGHT THING MAKE IT FAIR FOR EVERYBODY
I agree Recruiting at the High School level has to be stopped. So lets see, is it fair that Alco and Maryville, both schools allow tuition students that are out of zone to play and do not have to vacate their wins? So is the TSSAA saying that if the Perry County kids and the Signal Mountain kid would of paid a tuition fee they would of been eligible? Or is this just for the few? DOES NOT SEEM FAIR TO ME and yes I have had both Alco and Maryville posters say they have OOZ players(OUT OF ZONE) doesn't everybody? Come on, looks like to me TSSAA is promoting recruiting. LETS B FAIR
