ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY Transfers 5. TRANSFER POLICY: After initial entry into the ninth grade, and absent a bona fide move as provided in the Residence section in this Handbook: (a).a student transferring from one member school to another member school within the same LEA must sit out 365 days for athletic participation. The LEA may create criteria for immediate athletic eligibility for transfers within the LEA. (b).A student transferring from one member school in one LEA to another member school in a different LEA must sit out 365 days for athletic participation. Exceptions for immediate athletic eligibility for transfers from one LEA to a different LEA will be heard by a special NCHSAA transfer committee. NOTE: If a member school is not part of a defined LEA (e.g., charter school, non-boarding parochial school, etc.), then the member school itself will be considered its own LEA for purposes of this policy (i.e., exceptions involving these member schools will fall under subsection (b) above).
We recognize interscholastic athletic events should be conducted in such a manner ensuring good sportsmanship prevails at all times. Every effort should be made to promote a climate of wholesome competition. Unsportsmanlike acts will not be tolerated. A student shall be under the coach’s supervision and control at all times the student is participating in an athletic event. Code of Sportsmanship
To be eligible to participate in athletics, the student, with the consent of his/her parents, must agree in writing to submit to random alcohol and drug testing. The student shall be tested for alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, and any other controlled substances the Superintendent deems appropriate. “It’s My Call” Information about the alcohol/drugs testing policy, program and procedures is provided in a separate brochure which all athletes and their parents are expected to read. Information about the alcohol/drugs testing policy, program and procedures is provided in a separate brochure which all athletes and their parents are expected to read. Alcohol / Drugs
Alcohol / Drugs Consequences for a positive test The student shall not be suspended from school as a result of a positive test. a)FIRST OFFENSE. In the event a student fails or refuses to participate in the alcohol/drug test when selected at random or tests positive for alcohol or drugs, the student shall be ineligible to participate in athletics for 365 days. However, if the student agrees to be assessed and enroll in and successfully complete an alcohol and/or drug abuse education and/or intervention program, the student shall regain eligibility to participate in athletics immediately. a)SECOND OFFENSE.

As a student athlete, I am a role model. Using inappropriate language; taunting, baiting; or the use of unwarranted physical contact directed at opposing players, coaches, and fans are contrary to the sprit of fair play and good sportsmanship my school, conference and the NCHSAA expects of its members. I accept my responsibility to model good sportsmanship that come with being a student-athlete. NCHSAA – Student Athlete Pledge
As a parent I am a role model. I will remember school athletics are an extension of the classroom, offering learning experiences for the student. I will show respect for the opposing players, coaches, spectators and support groups. I certify that the home address as parents shown in this document (WSFCS Participation Forms) is my sole bona fide residence and will notify the school principal immediately of change in residence, since such a move may alter the eligibility status of my student-athlete.
