AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE FAIRNESS IN WOMEN'S SPORTS ACT.
This Act generally requires a student athlete to compete for athletic teams or in sports associated with their biological sex, as determined at or near birth and based on the student’s birth certificate or other government record if a birth certificate is unobtainable. An exception is permitted to allow female athletes to compete in male sports if a corresponding female sport is not available. To facilitate this Act, a school district, charter school, Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association member school, or higher education institution must designate an athletic team or sport sponsored by the school district, charter school, Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association member school, or higher education institution based on the biological sex of students.
