    MHSAA Adopts New Transfer Rule Effective 2015-16 School Year

    The Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association has passed a new Transfer Rule at their AGM which will take effect for the 2015-16 school year.  The rule states that once a student has been enrolled in grade 10, if they choose to transfer schools after grade 10, they would be ineligible to play the sports that they had played in grade 10, in their grade 11 school year.  They would be eligible to play in grade 12.  If they did not play a certain sport in the year prior, then they could transfer and still be eligible to play that sport.   Appeals based on extenuating circumstances will be considered.

    The MHSAA membership also approved, on a one year ‘Pilot’, to implement Regional Championship qualifiers for the Provincial A & AA Volleyball and Basketball Championships. Below are important dates to keep in mind for next year’s events.

    • Zone Champions determined by Feb 28, 2014
    • Regional Championships – March 7, 2014
    • Provincial Championships – March 19, 20, 21, 2014
    More detailed information will be provided to the zones in the fall. If you have any questions on these changes, please call Greg at 925-5642 or email

    1. This is a quite stupid rule, restricts students freedom of choice

    2. don't know if my prior comment got submitted properly..but i think is quite a dumb rule..for example, what if a student wants to take a vocational class but their school doesn't offer it? They transfer to another school that is offering it, but find them ineligible to play the same sport as the previous year because of this b.s. rule
