Athletic Directors Webinar - Girls Wrestling - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Has anyone looked into how the OCR would look at Title IX in accordance to scheduling and number of comps? If the boys have 20 comp points, the girls would have to match...they don't care how far you need to travel. We have been going through Title IX compliance and that is a huge part they are looking at.
In rural areas, schools are struggling to keep their boys programs and some have eliminated them. I understand and see growth at inception but worry about long term sustainability and the creation of it pulling girls from our already small numbers in other winter sports. Thoughts?
Paul..I will try to come back and answer that for you..Good question..I will give some thoughts on that
If you have a fully active girls team at your school with a unique schedule, are girls still able to compete against boy for events/opponents that do not have girls to wrestle?
Yes, they are and will touch on that one
Chris…you can see that question is up there now
Pat, let me know if you guys need any assistance. I coached wrestling in Texas for 9 years and I'm very familiar with this topic. Girls wrestling has been a sanctioned sport down there since 1999. Feel free to reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jon - did you mention if this will include your jr high?
If sanctioned - do female and male teams need to practice separately?
No..They do not have too
I wanted to thank Brooke and Pat for hosting this zoom and spreading awareness in Girls Wrestling movement. I learned some great info today that provides the opportunity to start working on adding this at my school. I have to hop on another zoom meeting but just wanted to thank our hosts for running this for us. Vanessa- Avon Grove HS AD
Along with practicing together, can the girls compete on the boys team when the opponent doesn't have a girls team, but compete against boys when necessary (sort-of a hybrid model)?
Thanks for doing this - I have to run to another meeting. State College is very interested. Chris Weakland- AD
Johnathan - will your wrestling booster club support both teams or do they plan on having separate booster clubs?
Great info! Richland will be working on this as we already have elementary girls who have been very successful. Bonnie Kidd, AD
We will have the same boosters for both wrestling teams.
Gotcha - might be best!
