Recruiting and Financial Assistance
The recruiting or proselytizing of student-athletes shall be considered a violation of the spirit and philosophy of the rules and regulations governing SCISA Athletics and considered unsportsmanlike conduct. A student should not be subjected to undue influence or any special inducement by any person or group in an attempt to entice the student to transfer primarily for athletic purposes. Recruitment in this manner shall cause the student to be ineligible upon transfer and shall jeopardize the standing of the school in the Association.
