NSAF Transgender Policy pre-NBNI update

by Steve Underwood

The NSAF is committed to including transgender girls in its girls’ events if they have met applicable NSAF, USATF, and IOC rules designed to ensure fairness to the female field. These rules require the athlete to demonstrate that they have been on gender-affirming hormones for a period of time sufficient to minimize their testosterone-driven performance advantages, i.e., that their testosterone (T) levels have been consistently below 10 nmol/l for at least a year.

Any athlete listed as competing this weekend who identifies as transgender has met our eligibility standards.  We look forward to welcoming them at the meet, and expect that all participants, including athletes, coaches, and families, will do the same.
