Fight to make cheer a varsity sport

Nor sure if cheer will qualify under NCAA as a varsity sport anymore?
Yeah I think there was actually a SCOTUS ruling on that.

I have noticed however that some schools, JMU specifically, use large wbb practice teams full of male players to help Title IX balance. I know we had an all men's practice squad under Coach Taylor (players had to give up their NCAA eligibility and everything) but Coach Swanson got rid of it.

NCAA changed rules effective 7/1/19 to disallow male practice players in WBB being treated as women participates

Maybe the second team can compete in DIII. Or even NAIA.

Do the rules preclude transgender athletes on a practice team?

There have been transgender student-athletes. I recall my local sports talk radio hosts talking about a women's basketball player at GW who identified as a man during [insert appriate pronoun here] athletic career.

There would be a lawsuit in NY second if the NCAA refused to except [insert appriate pronoun here] identified sex so...


I'm a huge MMA fan and individuals who were born male currently compete in women's MMA. Same for wrestling, strength sports, and track.

It's not a silly question.

Felt like a silly question in the context of using practice players to comply with Title IX. But I understand the desire to flesh out the legality and all of its nuances.
