TRAINING RULES examines how a wealthy athletic department, enabled by the silence of a complacent university, allowed talented athletes to be dismissed from their college team due to allegations of homosexuality. The film follows the lawsuit filed by student athlete Jennifer Harris in 2006 against Portland and Penn State. This high profile case ignited the world of women’s collegiate sports. It inspired the discussions so sorely needed to end discrimination based on sexual orientation that pervades organized sport. Powerfully narrated by international swimming great Diana Nyad (National Public Radio), TRAINING RULES is a riveting must-see film.
