Adopted by the general meeting on 1 April 2016
Fair Play & Inclusion
At Pan Sports, we believe that Fair Play is superior to all other principles in sports.
Fair Play is more than just complying with the respective rules associated with organized sports. Fair Play is to show a basic respect for each other both during and outside the practice of sports.
From our historical origins, which is a sports club founded by gays and lesbians, it is in our DNA to be an inclusive sports club with a special focus on sexual diversity and gender diversity. We must at all times create a safe and open sports community based on Fair Play for everyone who joins Pan Sports.
It is our priority that no one is subjected to direct or indirect discrimination, as long as participation in sport takes place on equal and fair terms based on Fair Play.
Gender identification is not the starting point for the division of our sports teams and activities, unless this is specifically determined by the department responsible for the activity in question. Such a division must be justified in sport-specific circumstances.
Concrete needs for division on the basis of gender identity
We recognize the complexity of gender identity, and accept that there may be situations, especially in connection with competitions, where it is assumed that there is a division based on gender - woman and man.
Our members decide for themselves whether they want to participate as a man or a woman. Such a choice must be consistent with the values of Fair Play.
Medical treatment with hormones is not an obstacle to participation in Pan Sports activities, as long as the principles of Fair Play are adhered to.
In the event of disagreement regarding compliance with the Fair Play principles, it is the steering groups in the individual departments that decide on placement as a woman or man.
The above policy does not apply to sporting events, competitions, matches, etc., if these are subject to a different policy, which follows decisions of the governing organizations to which they are subject.
