Athletic Recruitment

 

Fairness is a critical element in the prohibition against the recruitment (rule 44) of athletes. This standard is universal among state high school associations across the Nation. It is unfair to the opposition, to the student athlete who is displaced, and to the young person recruited to create a situation, which is contrary to the mission, philosophy, and goals of school sport. The athletic program of each school is established to provide additional educational and growth opportunities for the students who have elected to enroll (without the influence of athletic recruitment) in that high school.
