Fla. Legislature could pave way for high school free agency

High school athletics in Florida could be in for seismic changes as legislation dealing with the Florida High School Athletic Association is rapidly moving through the House and Senate.

After years of attempts, both chambers are closing in on passing a bill that would allow students a lot more freedom to transfer schools without fear of penalties. Proponents of the bill call it an expansion of school choice while opponents warn of a recruiting free-for-all among high schools.

If passed, Florida would have the most lenient standards for athletics transfers. The FHSAA oversees 800 schools with 285,000 students participating across 32 sanctioned sports.
