Transcript of TITLE IX

Andrew Valmon Saga + Olympic Gold medalist
+ coached track and field in London Olympics
-Collegiate team (UMD: University of Maryland) failed to resume for 2012-13 school year
++ Budget pressure caused team cut
-Fundraising needs to cover cost of BOTH Men's T&F and Women's Tumbling/Cheer
**Why? Because of Title IX's "proportional sport representation between the genders** by Dustin Skousen, Jordan Henstrom, Tori Thomas, and Rachel DuPaix TITLE IX
Controversy Opportunities Available Women's athletics have opened a realm of low-cost or free education because of scholarships and aids available to female athletes; they are also able to excel in sports they love. Women's Golf, for Instance... 2010: 217 D-I, 90 D-II colleges offering scholarships to female golfing athletes

the imbalance of
funding from
different programs,
as well as the
political kickback
from feminists? Senator Birch Bayh (IN) -Protests stereotype of "weaker sex"
-Reason for women gaining a college education = MRS degree? Men's football is keeping all other programs afloat for colleges THE REAL
PROBLEM... Ouch, Title IX “It is generally true that football, and sometimes men’s basketball, subsidizes a (sometimes large) portion of the expenses for other teams. It doesn’t matter if we’re looking at a team from Conference USA or the SEC.” -Kristi Dosh, Forbes Contributor SOLUTION -Title IX provides many benefits to both genders and a multitude of athletic activities for young people.
