Revised Guidelines for Mixed Competition in Athletics

December 1, 2022

​The Department has revised the guidelines for mixed competition in athletics to ensure equitable access to athletics for students of all genders. The new guidelines for students to participate in mixed competition athletics are:

  • Signed parent/guardian consent.
  • A current health examination (New York State School Health Examination Form).
  • A completed and signed Interval Health History Form if the health examination was not completed within 30 days of the start of the season; and
  • Clearance from the director of school health services (a.k.a. medical director) for the student to participate in athletics.
