AIA does enforce the rule for cheerleading pretty consistently, I myself have been on the negative end of it with one of my athletes. They instill the fear into athletic directors to know that if they are utilizing transfer students and not following policy, and if someone reports it to AIA, the school can lose the team, multiple teams, funding, etc. They've got crazy strict transfer rules, and they actually just updated them to make them even more strict going into the next school year. Not entirely sure how it works with KHSAA (I've been in AZ my entire life), but AIA takes the rule pretty seriously since most of AZ is open enrollment (students do not have to attend the school whose boundaries they live in). And they do also govern all private schools as well and sort of lump them in with the public schools for sports. With that being said, charter schools are quite prevalent here and I actually believe they have a separate governing body, so I'm not entirely sure if the rules would apply to them? Arizona's education system is kind of a mess so meh. Like I said, it's not a perfect solution, and would definitely have to be adapted to work for allstar. But I like the idea of the coaches/gyms not being stuck in the middle and forced to make that decision, which will have negative repercussions for their program no matter their decision. I just think USASF should make a blanket rule and then have an appeals process to an unbiased party. Now with that being said, this is my first year actually in the allstar world, as I always did high school/college cheer, so I'm a newcomer into this whole new side of cheerleading. Definitely still on a learning curve.
