2.) Upon the written recommendation of his junior high school team head coach, accepted by the appropriate high school team head coach.
3.) Play for the particular high school program for which that player would be eligible if he were attending 9th grade at that time; provided that such player must first be re-registered to do so by the appropriate high school program’s head coach, Provided that doing so shall not establish or determine such player’s team eligibility at the time such player actually attends the 9th grade or above.
