Yes, Title IX applies to educational institutions, but it can also be
used to cover programs that benefit from educational funds once removed.
For example, my daughter plays in the California Youth Soccer League,
which was integrated by Amy Love's lawsuit filed under Title IX when it
was decided that the League plays on many public school playing grounds.
It was also not necessary that the games Amy played in be on school
grounds, just that some games of the League were on school grounds.
