If they don't let you play as the gender you identify as, gather a bunch of people who either have faced the same problem or feel solidarity for the issue and do a walk-out protest.

School? That's the only thing a "walk-out protest" can mean.

Hi,

I’m not sure about the university you’ll be going to but if this is something you’re concerned about, then it might be worth emailing the university ahead of time to discuss this, or ask them to get in touch with the sports society’s leader to question this.

I hope this helps!
