Movie Info

Collegiate athlete Jennifer Harris takes on iconic Penn State women's basketball coach Rene Portland, whose strict "no lesbians" policy has led to promising athletes - including Harris - being intimidated, stripped of their scholarships, ejected from the team due to suspicions of homosexuality. For over 25 years, Portland wielded her status as one of the most respected women's basketball coaches in the country to promote a homophobic agenda that destroyed the dreams of countless female athletes.

Audience Reviews for Training Rules

Excellent treatment of the controversy surrounding the Penn State women's basketball program involving their long-time coach, Rene Portland and her discriminatory policy concerning lesbians. The filmmakers were somewhat hampered in presenting the full story, as the terms of the settlement between coach Portland and Jen Harris, one of her former players who sued her, prevented either party from giving an interview. But enough other people close to the situation were not bound by that agreement and the filmmakers were able to present a pretty clear picture of the psychological abuse that existed under coach Portland. Well done, but one came away wanting to see this program compared to one more tolerant. The extras gave the viewer a little taste of that, but this viewer wanted more.
