Can I play in a sports team that is my preferred gender identity at school?

< All Topics

If you want to join a school team or a team outside your school, talk to your teachers/coaches and they can advise you on whether it is possible for you to compete with people who share your preferred gender identity.

This will be decided on a case by case basis and the outcome should ensure that you are safe and comfortable, even if this means not competing with members of your preferred gender identity.

Your school should not rely on assumptions or stereotypes but instead adopt a “common sense approach” that considers the age and stage of physical development of the pupils, as well as the level of physical contact involved (if any).
