Training Rules

Edited and written and graphics by Gail Mallimson

Training Rules is a feature-length documentary directed by Fawn Yacker and Dee Mosbacher about a homophobic women's basketball coach at Penn State.  It portrays how women's collegiate sports, caught in a web of homophobic practices, collude in the destruction of the lives and dreams of many of its most talented athletes. It won several audience awards at film festivals in 2009, including the Frameline Film and Video Festival in San Francisco.
