New bill separating private and playoffs likely to pass.
« on: June 10, 2019, 07:11:49 PM »

PPG   June 10
The real news about this is that both public schools AND private schools are now in favor of this new proposal. What's suprisingly revealed  was that since 1972 the PiAA only required private school to have membership in the PIAA, they did not require private and public schools to have combined combined playoffs. I believe having separate sections are also being considered. A news conference will be held Tuesday morning regarding this.

Until the actual legislation is seen, it's hard to say that it's "likely to pass".......

The proposal is for separate private and public but charter schools would stay in public.  Also would eliminate transfer rule meaning you can transfer for athletic reasons freely as long as team hasnít played more than 50 percent of games. 

WPIAL has come out saying they arenít in favor.

This will not fly with parents in the public schools. It's bad enough you have people not truthful on residency.  Parents will not like their kid getting bumped for a last minute transfer.  Especially a parent paying 6k or more in property taxes for someone supposedly living somewhere in the district using a P.O. etc.

Under no circumstances should the 2 champions play each other.  What's the point?  You want separated, fine...2 champions it should be.  If the privates keep winning the majority of the final games, the pub's people will still be pizzzzzed!  Can't/shouldn't have it both ways.   JMO


The more trophies (participation, that is) the better.

I agree emm. Canít have it both ways. If they split they split.

This sucks for individual sports like golf, tennis, wrestling, swimming and track. Iím against it simply because it messes up those championships.

I donít think they are separating individual sports.  Only proposed for basketball, football, volleyball, soccer, baseball and softball.

Also seems only for PIAA playoffs and that District titles still combined.

It wouldnít affect the WPIAL playoffs you would be separated come states. So it still denies public schools opportunity because you have to be a district champion to move on.
So whatís the point?
Sounds like a way of getting around the transfer rule that would then open transfers for athletic intent.
