Bans on Participation in Sports for Transgender Youth

TAKE ACTIONBans on Participation in Sports for Transgender Youth


Sports and athletics are an important part of childhood, offering opportunities to build a sense of belonging and learn important life skills like teamwork, leadership, confidence, and self-discipline. No child should be denied the opportunity to participate in sports simply because of their gender identity. The overwhelming majority of transgender youth, like most kids, don’t play at elite levels; they just want to participate with their peers.
