To whom was referred a Bill (H. 4405) to amend the Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, by adding Section 59-63-70 so as to provide that during the season for any high school league sport, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
WARREN K. GIESE for Committee.
TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 59-63-70 SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT DURING THE SEASON FOR ANY HIGH SCHOOL LEAGUE SPORT, A STUDENT, WHILE A MEMBER OF A SCHOOL SQUAD OR TEAM ENGAGED IN AN INTERSCHOLASTIC SPORT MAY BECOME A MEMBER OF OR PARTICIPATE IN AN ORGANIZED TEAM THAT IS INDEPENDENT OF THE SCHOOL'S CONTROL UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 59-63-70. During the season for any high school league sport, a student, while a member of a school squad or team engaged in an interscholastic sport, may become a member of or participate in an organized team that is independent of the school's control as long as the participation does not interfere with the scheduled league games or practices of the school squad or team. A school or student shall not be declared ineligible for participation in interscholastic high school league sport because of participation of a student as a member of an organized team independent of the school's control during the interscholastic sport's season. Any student participating on both a school squad or team and an independent squad shall have on file with the school's athletic director a statement signed by the parent or guardian indicating their child or children have permission to participate on both teams and signed by the independent coach acknowledging that the student's participation shall not interfere with the scheduled league games or practices."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
