Naperville 203 clubs and athletic teams will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX throughout the week of April 18. The celebration will include a variety of school-based educational and extracurricular events for students. 

Students at Naperville Central and Naperville North will highlight the contributions of women in their sports and activities on social media using the hashtag #TitleIXin203.

Additionally, informative announcements will be made between quarters or halves of athletic contests. The announcements will highlight the importance of the landmark legislation, which ensures equal educational opportunities regardless of gender.

Crosstown Classics contests set for April 18, 19 and 20 at NCHS

The slate of athletic contests includes three female Crosstown Classics between Naperville Central and Naperville North. The schools’ girls soccer teams will play at 7PM on Mon., April 18, at NCHS; the softball teams will play at 4:30PM on Tues., April 19, at NCHS; and the girls lacrosse teams will play at 6:30PM on Wed., April 20, at NCHS.

DuPage Valley Conference also recognize Title IX 50th Anniversary 

The recognition of the 50th anniversary of Title IX is being held in conjunction with the DuPage Valley Conference. The conference’s other four high schools – DeKalb, Metea Valley, Neuqua Valley and Waubonsie Valley  – will also be participating in the celebration.

There are now more than 140,000 female high school athletes competing annually across 18 IHSA sports. The opportunities for today’s athletes were built on the perseverance of those who came before and we remain committed to increased gender equity.

Report submitted by Alex Mayster, Executive Director of Communications, for Naperville Community School District 203.
