NCAA Reaches a Key Moment as Transgender Laws Multiply
The NCAA has reached a delicate moment: It must decide whether to punish states that have passed laws limiting the participation of transgender athletes. The NCAA is close to selecting host sites for its softball and baseball tournaments. The NCAA Board of Governors issued a statement supporting transgender participation. The board said it would monitor legislation. Whether it will put regional tournaments in states with transgender sports limits is a question being closely watched in places like Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi.
