(GOODING, ID) – A southern Idaho community sports program has banned girls from playing youth football. Gooding Recreation District Director Kent Seifert told a fifth-grade football coach to remove two girls from his team, including the coach’s own stepdaughter. Gooding is the only district in the Magic Valley Youth Football League to prohibit girls, though the league’s bylaws allow girls to play. Officials say that at this point, the league can’t enforce the rule in Gooding, though they plan to review the situation next year.
