OT: Girl forced off of Boys Hockey Team

For 12-year-old Kayla Watkins, the public humiliation was too much.

After learning a parent on her coed peewee hockey team — comprised entirely of boys except for her — called for restrictions on her ice time or her removal from the team unless her skills improved, she did the only thing she thought she could: She quit.
If you pick a kid to be on the team... you're stuck with them for the rest of the season. You can't kick them off a team because they apparently "aren't good enough". Girl or boy.

I don't think that this is the only thing going on here, though. There is a lot of controversy surrounding girls and hockey right now... my little sister is in the middle of it, as well.

EDIT: If this is in the wrong section, mods... feel free to move it.
