Common Transfer Problems

Common reasons that a student-athlete considers a transfer:

DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS
The student-athlete has been cut from the team by the Coach for disciplinary reasons.

NOT A GOOD FIT
The student-athlete is not a good fit with the school, team, or coach.

FINANCIAL REASONS
The student-athlete’s family is experiencing financial roadblocks.

SCHOLARSHIP CUTS
The Coach cut scholarship money for the next year.

PLAYING TIME
The student-athlete is not getting enough playing time.

LOCATION
The student-athlete wants to be closer to home.

Some commonly encountered roadblocks to a transfer:

UNAWARE OF RIGHTS
The student-athlete may not know about their right to appeal if the Coach refuses their transfer request.

LIMITED SELECTION
Coaches frequently restrict the schools that a student-athlete can consider.

LOSS OF PRIVILEGES
Loss of access to work-out facilities, study halls, tutoring assistance, training table meals, etc.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE UPON TRANSFER REQUEST
The Coach immediately tells the student-athlete to clean out their locker and leave the team when they tell the coach they are thinking of transferring.

TRANSFER REFUSALS
Coaches can refuse a transfer because it negatively affects the team’s APR.

NEED PERMISSION TO CONTACT
Student-Athletes contact other schools before obtaining permission from their current school and then their coach finds out and kicks them off the team.

ELIGIBILITY ISSUES
Student-Athletes who want to transfer can encounter eligibility issues which could create financial and other challenges.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“Rick was able to guide us through the issues involved of moving from a D1 to a Junior College and back to a D1 university to ensure NCAA rules were not violated and to give us good information on the various options available to our son. Through our experiences, we have come to learn to value Rick’s opinion and have realized that it is difficult, if not impossible, to try and interpret the many rules and regulations that govern NCAA athletes unless you have a helping hand.” Read More
