ATIXA 2023 April Policy Corner

ATIXA Endorses the WINS Act.

On April 6, 2023, Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ) and Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) introduced the Women in NCAA Sports (WINS) Act (HR 2532), bipartisan legislation that addresses and promotes fairness in women’s collegiate sports programming. The WINS Act would establish a 16-member congressional commission to comprehensively study equality in the NCAA’s operation of tournaments and other programs for which there are men’s and women’s divisions.

ATIXA endorsed this legislation, along with the Women’s Sports Foundation, Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, National Fastpitch Coaches Association, Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, Alliance of Social Workers in Sports (ASWIS), Girls on the Run, and USA Lacrosse. ATIXA is proud to be included as an organizational endorsement. To learn more about the bill, check out ATIXA’s website.
