GHSA Moves Forward With Transgender Sports Ban

May 5th, 2022 – 2:00 PM

Georgia High School Association

On Wednesday, in a sixty-two to zero vote, the Georgia High School Association unanimously changed its bylaws surrounding transgender athletes competing in High School sports.

Going forward, athletes will be required to compete under the sex listed on their birth certificate.

The organization had previously allowed individual member schools to make the determination.

The new policy applies to all member public schools of the GHSA.

Georgia schools that fail to comply risk losing their state education funding.
