Transfer Rule Guideline
Effective with the 2017-2018 school year, 8th graders who have competed at the high school level (freshman, JV and/or Varsity sport) at their previous school before coming to Albertus Magnus will be subject to the transfer rule as set forth by the New York State Public High School Athletics Association (NYSPHSAA). Paraphrased, the transfer rule states that any student in grades 8-12 who transfers without a corresponding change in residence to the Clarkstown Central School District shall not be eligible to participate in his/her sport at Albertus Magnus high school level for a period of 1 (one) year if he or she participated in that sport at the high school level at his/her previous school. Students would be automatically eligible for participation in a sport not previously played in season at the high school level.
