A Title IX Game Experience
About The Game
After 45 years of Title IX, people still don’t know what it can do for all athletes. Only 10% of college students report having a basic knowledge of the law. PLAY IX is an interactive messenger game that helps you navigate through the many rights that Title IX protects in athletics. It aims to: educate student-athletes as well as coaches, administrators, parents and the sports community about the legislation, help young athletes own the conversation, and build a stronger community.
Using Facebook Messenger or Kik, players are guided through some of the challenging experiences routinely faced by student-athletes, coaches and sports administrators by playing through a series of four avatars representing diverse perspectives. Each scenario is complemented by images and videos that make it educational, entertaining and relatable.
Play The Game
Designed with student-athletes in mind, PLAY IX is free to play on Facebook Messenger and Kik messaging platforms with no in-app purchase. Search PLAY IX or @WSFplayIX on either platform, send a message to start a conversation and you’re in.
Win an Exclusive Experience for Your School
Here’s a competition that you’ll definitely want to enter. The school with the highest number of players completing the game through Monday, April 30th, 2018, will win an unforgettable experience – a visit by one of WSF’s Champion Athletes to the winning school for an interactive discussion.
Share the game and encourage your students to play! Game play is not restricted to current students; anyone can play and enter your school’s name to count towards your grand total completions.
