(The American Sports Council was formerly known as the College Sports Council.)

“I am pleased to endorse the College Sports Council (CSC).Men’s collegiate rowing has been unquestionably damaged by what is nothing less than a divisive gender quota system engendered by Title IX. I support the CSC’s efforts to reform Title IX regulations to be more fair and reasonable.”

– Jason Read, Olympic Gold medalist, Rowing, 2004

“If we don’t reform the current regulations that govern Title IX, we will continue to see more athletic programs eliminated, and that would be a tragic loss. I hope that you will join me in demonstrating your support for the very worthy efforts of the CSC. Only with your support can the CSC continue its work to reform Title IX, and to stop the elimination of our nation’s collegiate athletic teams.”

– John Naber, 4x Olympic Gold Medalist, Swimming, 1976

“I’ve known the leaders of the College Sports Council (CSC) for well over a decade. We are fortunate to have such an unquestionably devoted group leading the way for Title IX reform. I respect their tenacity and appreciate their efforts. I hope the Olympic sports community will do everything it can to support the CSC team.”

– Dan Gable, Olympic Gold Medalist, Wrestling, 1972

“The work done by the American Sports Council has been instrumental in educating the public about the inequities surrounding the enforcement of Title IX legislation. Their work in this area has made a pivotal difference in the fight to save men’s collegiate sports opportunities. I support their efforts to provide an environment where women can enjoy sports, while ensuring men’s programs will not be unfairly eliminated in the process.“

– Daniel Sharadin, Commissioner Collegiate Water Polo Association

“USA Wrestling is proud to work closely with the College Sports Council, and we encourage all within wrestling to support its programs. It will be a tremendous investment in protecting wrestling programs in the future.”

– Rich Bender, Executive Director, USA Wrestling

“I’ve been fortunate to work with the College Sports Council for several years now, and I know how hard they work, not only to preserve sports opportunities, but to provide increased opportunities for those who are interested in participating at the college level. We are lucky to have the CSC.”

– Mike Burns, President, College Gymnastics Association

“The College Sports Council has been valiant and steadfast in their opposition to universities that offer up men’s Olympic sports teams as ‘sacrificial lambs’ on the altar of gender equity. I would hope that all in the swimming community who care about saving teams would support the CSC.”

– Timothy J. Powers, Former President, College Swimming Coaches Association of America

“The Friends of Binghamton Wrestling made its first call to the CSC when we heard that our wrestling program was about to be discontinued. The CSC helped us formulate a plan to fight the proposed cancellation. It was invaluable to have an organization to turn to that had successful experience fighting the elimination of sports programs.”

– Joe Marinucci & Sal DeSantis, Co-Chairmen, Friends of Binghamton Wrestling
