First post here so forgive me if I mess this up.
Let me get this straight these kids are playing in an A or "in house" league and this dad has the gull to say this girl ins't good enough. Isn't this the level that everyone is accepted because they don't have the skills to make an AA, AAA team but want to play? I have been playing hockey since I was 4 and have seen kids with all types of skill level in the in house leagues. Some who could have made a higher level, but couldn't due to the added expence, and some who couldn't even transisition. Where does this guy get off saying she doesn't belong? Maybe the bigger question is why isn't his son better?
Also to those of you saying girls shouldn't be playing with boys at this age, there really isn't a difference in strength until boys go through puberty. Once that happens, then yes, girls should be on an all girls team.
However I do agree with they need to have a seperate changing areas for a girls.
