The members of the Emerald City League (ECL) believe that any attempt to attract students from one school to another, private or public, primarily for the purpose of improving a school's athletic program, is in direct violation of WIAA policies (see WIAA handbook section 24.0.0) and reflects unfavorably on the League, creates ill will among member schools, and distorts the role of athletics in our educational process. Furthermore, any attempt on the part of coaches or other school personnel to directly or indirectly encourage or cause students to attend their high school (for athletic purposes) shall render the school subject to penalty.
