The ruling of Title IX is a law prohibiting gender discrimination in schools that receive federal funds through grants, scholarships or other support for students. All colleges that give federals funds must have equal men’s sports to women’s sports.
Having Title IX as a law in college sports is a strain on finance for most colleges because sports that do not make enough money to support the school are still getting funded and supplied with equipment and accessories to keep their sport going but at the same time these sports that don’t bring in money at an equal end. These athletics are being carried therefore; this is losing the school money because there is no equal balance.
Another reason why Title IX should be changed is because the law provides less opportunity for groups that are interested on starting new sports. For instance, if a male student gathered a bunch of other male students to form a men’s golf team it will be a struggle for them because of the Title IX laws, if a men’s team were to be adding then they would have to start a women’s sport as well.

Another thought is that there may not be enough women athletes to start the sport in the first place.

Title IX is the cause for kicking some sports out the door, whether good or bad it left great athletes with no opportunity to succeed. ASU’s gymnastics team later came together and formed a club team but it’s not the same because they do not get the same financial funding for equipment or the medical coverage that a scholarship college athlete should have. The gymnast help there club team by fundraising every weekend to...
