Medical and training services and facilities

Factors to consider when determining Title IX compliance are:

  • Availability and quality of weight and training facilities
  • Availability and qualifications of athletic trainers
  • Availability of medical personnel and assistance
  • Insurance coverage (if any)

Example: Included in this section are weight rooms, which should be equally available to all teams. If the school has only one weight room, it should be equally open to all teams and be stocked with weights appropriate for all levels of training. A school should not favor boys’ teams over girls’ teams by providing boys’ teams with better equipment. For example, many schools discriminate by maintaining separate “football” weight rooms that are not open to girls. A better solution would be to have different weight rooms for “heavy training” and “moderate training,” each of which is open to all students and is stocked with equipment of equal quality.
