Montgomery, TX asked in Consumer Law and Civil Rights for Texas

Q: Can my daughter be excluded from an ALL WELCOME soccer camp?

Mid year, I withdrew my daughter from a private catholic school in Texas. I did so for personal reasons that didn’t involve her behavior or conduct. I enrolled her in public school and she finished the year with straight A’s. Early June I received an email from the schools soccer coach inviting participation in a summer soccer camp at a cost of $150.00. The Facebook advertisement along with the email

Stated ALL welcome, you don’t have to be a school student to attend. I contacted the coach, he welcomed my daughters attendance. I paid the fee and received an email from the coach saying he looked forward to seeing her.

My daughter has been excited to see some old friends and have a good time doing what she loves. Yesterday I received an email from the coach stating that the principal made the decision that my daughter would not be allowed to attend due to the abrupt withdrawal of her from school would be too hard on her seeing her former classmates. Total nonsense in my opinion.
