What NCAA Blockbuster Admission Says About the Future of Women Sports

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

At a time when the NCAA faces backlash for suppressing women’s achievements, NCAA President Charlie Baker made a blockbuster admission buried on page 18 of a recent letter to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee: “The NCAA has never studied the harm of its policy allowing males identifying as women to participate and compete on women’s teams.”  Not ever.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) posed the question among a series in follow up to Baker’s appearance at a hearing entitled Name, Image, Likeness and the Future of College Sports

Sen. Mike Lee:   Has the NCAA assessed the physical, emotional, psychological harm of its transgender inclusion policy on female athletes? If so, what are the findings? If not, why not?  

Pres. Baker:  The NCAA has not conducted any research related to the current transgender policy.
