Title IX deals with sex discrimination in education programs. "Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." So, if your daughter is being denied a spot in the athletic program because of her sex in a school that receives federal government assistance, then she would have a Title IX claim.

Best wishes,
