Mom booted from youth basketball tournament after she trips player from opposing team

Video from a youth basketball game held in California this past Saturday appears to show a mother tripping a player who was dribbling up the court.

The player was part of the Cornerstone Basketball Academy’s 10-and-under team. Eugene Solano, the team’s director, told KXTL-TV that the team was playing in the Hardwood Palace tournament in Rocklin against the Folsom Elite Basketball Academy. Solano said players had told him about the alleged trip and other incidents involving the lady int he pink hat.

The Folsom Basketball Academy released a statement on the incident.

“We have been made aware of the video and we have addressed the situation with the parent involved directly,” the statement read. “It is our policy to manage all disciplinary matters in a way that is effective and productive so we can eliminate incidents in the future but this is an internal club matter and out of respect for the privacy of the people involved we will not be commenting any further.”
