under title ix, there are certain requirements that schools must not only be
aware of, but must implement when they are organising interscholastic
athletics, or intradistrict teams. there is the funding question, of
course, but there are also issues of comparability in facilities (locker
rooms etc), uniforms, coaches, playing times, playing fields, cheerleading,
booster clubs, and more. any equity assistance center can furnish an
athletics/title ix checklist as can the women's sports foundation.
connections can be found at the weea website, www.edc.org/womensequity.
