#EqualityForKymora

It astonished me that in 2015 a youth basketball team can be disqualified because they have a female player yet this is the case for the Virginia team,the Charlottesville Cavaliers. Ten year-old Kymora is the point guard for the Cavs and loves basketball and her team. Her mother had no idea she would not be allowed to play, seeing as she had already been in "hundreds of tournaments for the Cavaliers, including two National Travel Basketball Association (NTBA) tournaments". Kymora's head coach played her during the tournament, despite the rules specifiically banning her, and the team was subsequently disqualified. The team has stood by Kymora, supporting her by wearing uniforms.
