Title IX mandates equitable athletic scheduling, including access to prime time which consists of prime days, times of practices and games, and seasons. The Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) schedules six girls sports in non-traditional or disadvantageous seasons, but sets no such seasons for the boys.
Arizona, Montana, South Dakota, West Virginia, and Virginia switched their seasons (after being sued) to reflect the NCAA womens fall volleyball and winter basketball schedule. Alaska, North Dakota, Hawaii and Rhode Island voluntarily changed their seasons. Only Michigan will be out of sync with the rest of the nation in womens high school volleyball and basketball in the 05-06 school year.
Because of inequitable scheduling, MHSAA currently restricts high school females in ways it has not limited males.
