Title IX sports refer to the provisions of Title IX, a federal law in the United States, that require educational institutions to provide equal opportunities for male and female students to participate in sports and athletics. Under Title IX, schools are prohibited from discriminating on the basis of sex in any educational program or activity, including sports. This means that schools must offer equitable opportunities, resources, and funding for both male and female sports programs.

Title IX has had a significant impact on increasing female participation in sports and ensuring gender equity in athletics programs at schools and colleges. It has led to greater opportunities for women and girls to compete in various sports and has been a driving force behind the growth of women’s sports in the United States.
