Default Girl, 12, told she can't play ball with boys

You play ball like a girl.


That used to be an insult. In Beaverton, Oregon, it's becoming more like a fantasy.


Jaime Nared, a 12-year-old girl who stands 6-foot-1, has been told she can no longer play on the boys team of which she has been a member since the second grade, according to a report on the Web site of The Oregonian. Curiously, the timing of her ban came in the wake of a 30-point effort against an all-boys team.

"She scored 30 points," Jaime's mom, Reiko Williams, told The Oregonian. "I remember one play. She stole the ball, dribbled up court and made a behind-the-back pass to a teammate. He missed the lay-in, and she grabbed the rebound and put it in. I think it was just too much for some of those parents. "The next day, she came home and said they wouldn't let her play with the boys anymore."


Last month, a group of parents from an opposing team told management at The Hoop, a private Beaverton basketball facility that runs the league in which Nared's team competes, that they didn't like Nared playing against their sons. Hoop officials then told Nared's coach, Michael Abraham, that she could no longer play, citing a league rule that prohibits mixed-gender teams, the newspaper reported.

"I never saw the rule," said Abraham, who has coached basketball for 32 years. "If I'd known about it, I wouldn't have put any of my teams in the league. Besides, she's been playing on this team since second grade, and she plays on our team when we travel around the region. There's never been any problem in any event, not one word of complaint."

well playing against the boys is basically the only way to get noticed with the WNBA in relative obscurity...

it's unfair to both her and her family...

They better get that girl reinstated if they don't want a huge discriminatory suit filed against them...

don't be an idiot----girls grow taller faster than boys and are usually done growing by the time they are 12 or 13. Take it from a girl who is 5'11" and was so at 12. Its not easy when your a head taller than the boys in your class---they don't catch up until sophmore/junior year in high school---if ever. If you see a tall girl on the street---odds are she was that tall at 12.

I agree, if some little girl (who stands 6'1") was pushing me around at that age I wouldn't have that. Us men can't have women being taller and better than us. It's just not meant to be.

All Is Fare In Love N War


Its just sad that someone had to finally say something after that beating she put on them. If I were her parent and she was allowed to play up until then and then all of a sudden they said " oh no... she cant play anymore because she is a Girl..."... Oh no... thats not gonna happen
The Boys just need to suck it up and accept the butt kicking they just recieved from this little lady..
