Transgender Policy

It is recommended that NZSSAA adopt the Athletics NZ Transgender and Transsexual Participation Policy document, which is currently in draft.

Please note the section on children and teenagers aged 12-18 years does not completely cover our NZSSSAA age groups, which go from athletes having turned 13 by December 31 to being under 20 on December 31 in the year of competition. Nonetheless, the principles and approach contained in that section would apply to our competitions.

The NZSSAA Executive have discussed an approach to participation in our Track and Field, Road Race and Cross Country championships, and recommend the following as guidelines.
