dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate Title IX compliance at the interscholastic level, since the inception of Title IX in 1972. Specifically, the researcher was interested in the participation patterns and sport offerings of Indiana high schools for both male and female athletes. Participants were 125 high school athletic directors from division IA, 2A, 3A, 4A, and 5A schools in the State of Indiana. The athletic directors were administered the Athletic Survey which consisted of 44 questions that addressed the sport offerings and participation patterns for both male and female athletes. The results showed that males were participating in more interscholastic sports than females. This trend has existed for a very long time; however, the number of females participating has steadily increased since the passage of Title IX in 1972. The number of sports offered to both sexes was found to be equal with an average of nine sports each. Opportunity was very important according to Title IX regulations. The selection of sports must effectively accommodate the interests and abilities of both sexes. en_US
