The use of opposite sex facilities is encouraged when gender presentation reflects the gender identity of the individual.
Program (Intramural/Activity) Participation:
When a program makes a gender designation, a patron can participate in the gender-specific league/program that affirms each participant’s personal gender identity and gender presentation.The participant’s gender identity will also be applied when there are gender-specific rules or player ratio requirements in intramural leagues.
