After reading this article, it seems the AHSAA is just as backwards as the NCAA. I can't believe they would make these girls sit out an entire season. Did they gain some advantage over other kids they play against? It really irks me that two kids get punished for trying to get some exposure for potential college scholarship opportunities. Seems like the complete opposite of the way it should be.
Two Tuscaloosa County High School soccer players have been declared ineligible and will have to sit out the rest of the season for attending a University of Alabama camp.

Seems like a pointless rule unless I'm missing something.
"The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over; thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard."
My daughter played high school. AHSAA had rules which hampered the growth of soccer and developement of players. Many girls skipped school soccer and played club only. No improvement seen if these two girls lose rest of season.
Am I missing something here? It seems like no one is putting any blame on the high school coach and/or players.
I feel bad for the girls, but I knew of this rule when I was in school. What do I mean? I remember playing park baseball after I got into Middle School and some of the guys didn't start playing until a month into the season. I asked why. The response was those guys played for school teams and it was against the rules for AHSAA players to play anywhere other than their school teams while in season. I'd bet this is the same rule or somehow linked to this rule. I don't know if they do this any more, but park ball for high school players used to not start until May either.
I'm not saying that there wasn't some negligence by the Bama coach, but to put this all on him or the AHSAA is ridiculous.
All parties deserve blame but Bramble's responses are pathetic.
This does still apply even for Middle School. 2-3 years ago Semmes Middle out of West Mobile had just advanced to Championship game but was ruled ineligable for that game because some of the players went to a park ball practice and were turned in. May of had to forfeit semi-final game. Think thats what happened.
