This Article discusses several cases that have placed a national spotlight on transgender access to bathrooms. While legislative battles over transgender rights have focused on school bathrooms, the issue of transgender rights in the entire sporting world is not a new one. Changes at higher levels indicate a shifting, more trans-inclusive sport landscape. Regardless of the outcome of the court cases, sport associations in the educational context and beyond can, and in the Authors' view should, continue to lead the way toward more inclusive practices and spaces for all athletes.
