                   Title IX of the Education Amendments 2009
          Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law
          prohibiting gender discrimination in athletic programs at
          institutions that receive federal funds. Title IX has been a
          controversial law involving amateur sports. Since it was enacted,
          the number and quality of female high school and college
          athletes have increased tremendously as a direct result of this
          federal law. Title IX is often referred to as the gender equity
          statute. Some say Title IX as the necessary equivalent of
          affirmative action for women in sports. Others argue that Title IX
          is an unjust quota system that punishes male athletes and
          programs.



As a result of this legislation, women have directly benefitted from the creation of new
programs and new opportunities to compete at the highest amateur level. Additionally,
professional leagues in several sports such as the Women’s National Basketball
Association (WNBA) .


In 1979, the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) published regulations regarding how Title IX
should be interpreted. These regulations compared areas of financial assistance and
other funding categories for both men’s and women’s sports programs. Based on the
OCR’s interpretation, these factors must be taken into account when comparing Title IX
compliance between men’s and women’s programs:
  •   EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES;

  •   SCHEDULING OF GAMES AND PRACTICE TIME;

  •   TRAVEL AND PER DIEM ALLOWANCES;

  •   TUTORING;

  •   COACHING;

  •   LOCKER ROOMS, PRACTICE, AND COMPETITIVE FACILITIES;

  •   MEDICAL AND TRAINING FACILITIES AND SERVICES;

  •   HOUSING AND DINING FACILITIES AND SERVICES;

  •   PUBLICITY;

  •   SUPPORT SERVICES; AND

  •   RECRUITMENT OF STUDENT-ATHLETES (E.G., BUDGET).
