What are the stipulations for transferring schools as a D1 Track and Field athlete? I am planning on transferring schools after my freshman year at a D1 college i am attending to another D1 closer to my home but i want to know if it is smart to transfer at the end of my year here or at a different point in time (as in will schools have any scholarship funding at that point in time)? Along with that i want to know what are the stipulations for transferring such as will i lose a year of eligibility such as in basketball or football and other info. Lastly how should i best word it to the coach here that i am unsatisfied with the school and track program and the way it didn't meet my expectations? I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
The funding part of the question is extremely important to me as i am on a very large scholarship at this point so i need to know about that issue.
