Arizona Interscholastic Association (USA)

The Arizona Interscholastic Association Executive Board approved the first transgender student-athlete to play in a winter sport in Arizona.

Chuck Schmidt, associate executive director of the AIA, said he could not give the name of the athlete, nor the sport, school and sex in order to protect the student-athlete’s privacy.

An AIA subcommittee recommended the eligibility of the transgender athlete to the board, which unanimously voted to allow the student-athlete to play.
